Kullu Info

  • State: Himachal Pradesh
  • Famous for/as: Hill

The city of Kullu nestles in the 'Valley of Gods', situated on the banks of River Beas at an altitude of 1230 m. Its main attraction is the scenic surroundings - green carpeted hills, sparkling rivers, tall deodar forests, apple orchards and uninterrupted views of the Himalayan snow-peaks. Kullu's history can be traced back to 1st century AD when Behangamani Pal, a native of Tripura founded the settlement here. Besides being blessed with abundant natural beauty, Kullu offers an excellent base for adventure sports. Although the more famous Manali becomes the final destination for the tourists, Kullu has its fair share of attractions.

 

Sightseeing Highlights:

 

Raghunath Temple holds prime importance among locals as well as tourists. Dedicated to Lord Rama, this temple was built in 1660 by Raja Jagat Singh. Sultanpur Palace in Kullu has miniature paintings and artefacts of ancient times. Jagannath Devi Temple is reached after an hour's hiking but offers glorious views of the region. Bijli Mahadev Temple located at a height of 2640 m is 11 Km from the town. Legend has it that the shiv lingam inside the temple is shattered every time there is lightning and the priests bind it with clarified butter or ghee. About 45 Km from Kullu is Manikaran famous for its natural hot springs. Basheshwar Mahadev Temple is 15 Km from Kullu and is known for its beautiful carvings.

It is a natural place and most wonderful place to visit. The waterfalls are the best one to visit and the River Amre must. You can buy many amazing things there for a low price and the handicrafts are the best made. We had trekking and we had many games there.

"Enjoy the beauty and thrills of Kullu and Manali"

  • 6/7
  • Posted Jul 6, 2014
I Visited Kullu, Manali & Rohtang this June. We stayed in an apartment in Kullu which belonged to one of my uncles. The most amazing thing about Kullu is that there are lots of places to visit about unlike Shimla or Nanital where you are more or less stuck to few places. It can be religious and it can also be fun and thrill. Summer is the best season to visit Kullu but I would suggest to either visit in May or in July because in June due to holiday season there is a lot of rush so the hotels and taxi drivers charge high prices. There are lots of places to visit about like you should visit Manikaran Sahib which is about 50 Km from Kullu. The specificity about the place that 24*7 hot boiling water is flowing from a well like place. Another place you can visit is Bijli Mahadev which is very less known but it is a very good place to visit as it is on the top of Kullu hill and from the top you can almost see entire Kullu district. You can take taxis or buses to visit there but make sure to take some food with you. You can visit some temples and markets in Kullu & Manali. You must visit Mata Mandir in Manali, then you should visit to Rohtang Pass as there is snow. It feels like you are in heaven though oxygen level is low there.

As Himachal is very much near to Nepal you can get Nepali and Chinese food there but I didn't find it nice except Momos which you can almost find on any corner of the road in Kullu and Manali. If you like Chinese food then you can find Chinese food very easily and of good taste. Almost every evening we went to a the bridge on the Beas River and watched the river flow in its full flow. The scene is very soothing to eyes. You can almost find peace of mind here. We also went for rafting twice. It was an experience of a lifetime. It cannot be elaborated in words. At one moment we were on top of water and in the second moment it seemed as if we are going to die but coach had told us not to worry as they know how to control the boat. All in all it was the most amazing experience. I would advice that people should visit by road. Camera is a must have thing. You should hire a local guide to visit places because places they can tell to visit nobody else can tell you. Second thing is that if you want to go to Rohtang then you should take private taxi from Kullu or Manali and most preferably from Manali.
