Gushaini Info

Located in the Tirthan Valley in the Kullu District of Himachal Pradesh, Gushain is a small town surrounded by snowcapped Himalayan peaks. Situated at an altitude of 4,500 feet, Gushain lies between the coordinates 31°38'14N and 77°25'41E. Famous for its trout fishing, the destination is popularly known as a Trout Country.  Insulated within the Kullu valley, the town is renowned for its beautiful landscape and view of the Himalayan peaks.

One of the most popular attractions of this town is Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP), which was established in 1984. Spread over an area of 1,171 sq. km, this park is inhabited by more than 375 fauna species. Shoja, a tiny hamlet, which is located around 20 km away from Gushain, is another popular attraction.

Bhuntar Airport, which is popularly known as Kullu Airport, is the nearest airport from Gushain. This airport serves flights from Pathankot, Chandigarh, Delhi, Dharamsala and Shimla. Tourists travelling to the destination by train can reach Chandigarh Railway Station, which is served by the Northern Railways. Gushain is connected to Chandigarh, Delhi and Kullu by regular bus service.

Situated at the higher elevations, Gushain experiences temperate climate. Though Gushain is an all year round destination, but the best time to visit the place is from February to June and again from September to November.      

Gushaini is one of the weekend getaway options for travelers living in Kullu and Mandi.

"Off Beat Destination"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 2, 2016
Had Planned this trip to Tirthan Valley which turned out to be a wonderful vacation. The place is far off with no connection either telephone or internet. Total time fully utilized with family, nature and self introspection. The place is unspoiled and I wish that I could have stayed there for ever.
The place is full of natural beauty with tirthan river as its lifeline. The Hotel was situated on its bank and we spend our maximum time there. Its Anglers paradise. Also if one have the inclination and time then one can spend some time in the The Great Himalayan National Park.
Birders paradise with virgin water falls. People looking for shopping, mall roads, music, party DJs kindly exuse.

"Untouched scenery"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Aug 7, 2015
We reached Gushaini at 2am by a taxi hired from Chandigarh. It took 9 hours to reach there as the road conditions are worse (expert driver is mandatory). The place only offers homestays and they're petty good. Raju's Homestay is the most popular and oldest and the most attractive feature is their own ropeway to carry guests from the other side of the river (must do). Tirthan river is calm, clean, and shallow there. The water is sweet and fishes are very tasty to eat (after cooking). There is a waterfall and good trek for enthusiastic travellers. The apricot and apple trees blossom in the Autumn season and it's beautiful see them. A one night/two days trip is sufficient to explore the place if you are not visiting the national park nearby. Go there, if you are looking for some peace, fresh air, clean natural water to drink, some trekking. Only option to reach at Tirthan valley is by road, so choose your mode of travel carefully.

The place is calm & quite with just a river and you. This is an ideal place to unwind yourself.
This place is more suited to people who dont like crowded tourist places. One most important thing the resort only allows family to stay.

Activities & things to do: Just rome around, trekking, fishing in river tirthan, eat and drink.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: It is on delhi manali route. Take a right turn from ought tunnel.
