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.

Kullu is average, no traffic system in Kullu. Hotels are too much expensive & costly. The agents & guides are frauds. Food stalls were costly. We were not fully satisfied, happy with our tour. But overall all is good.

"Enjoyment of occasion on Kullu river"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Good moment was took place at Kullu which is a memorable day in my life which made me enjoy most. Rafting was awesome, the cold water nearby and keeping hands in cold water and throwing on friends a great day. Kullu rafting took 1 hour to complete and the sound of Kullu river was so dangerous.

"Kullu a beautiful place to go!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Kullu is a District HQ in Himchal Pradesh. Situated on the bank of River Beas in Kullu Valley. Having altitude of 4200 ft, the place is regarded as treasure of beauty. I stayed at Kullu for a night. I was impressed with the scenic beauty of the place. There are many temples in Kullu, Raghunath Temple near the Palace of Maharaja of Kullu is most famous. Dussehra festival at Kullu is also very famous.

The Beas river is flowing between the two valleys of Kullu. Nearby Airport is Bhuntar that is 10 KM from Kullu. Kullu is 500 KM from Delhi and Luxury Buses are available daily from Delhi. Manali and Manikaran are also very near to Kullu so people love to also visit Manali where Manikaran natural hot water is famous. Other famous spots are Raghunath Temple, Bijli Mahadev. Bijli Mahadev is a Temple where each year Natural Climatic.

It was my first trip to Himachal with my family. We enjoyed so much there. Me, my wife and my two children went there, we were so happy to see all new things. We played with snow and ice skating. We wore leather jacket, we took it on rent. We booked one room in hotel, we spent there 3 days. Next year we will go again to enjoy.

"Kullu the Romance with Nature"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 8, 2015
Kullu called a silver valley which is beyond rose the forbidding heights of the greater Himalayas. Kullu silver valley has nature's treasures that lie carelessly scattered as flowers. Kullu is the famous tourist spot but it also known for Dussehra festival. When Dussehra ends in the rest of the country it begins at Kullu. The Beas river is flowing between the two valleys of Kullu. Nearby Airport is Bhuntar that is 10 KM from Kullu. Kullu is 500 KM from Delhi and Luxury Buses are available daily from Delhi. Manali and Manikaran are also very near to Kullu so people love to also visit Manali where Manikaran natural hot water is famous. Other famous spots are Raghunath Temple, Bijli Mahadev. Bijli Mahadev is a Temple where each year Natural Climatic changes destroy the Shivling and when unmarried girls join the hands to recollect the destroyed pieces of shivling and joints them with pure butter and that makes the shivling as before. In the winters woollen clothes are necessary and all other season's the climate is much comfortable.

"Beautiful place!"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 30, 2015
You must visit Kullu as it has such scenic beauty that you won't be able to get out of your mind even after going back. Journey to Kullu is amazing, the way to Kullu is such scenic and is one of the best journey, I had ever undertaken, comprising of beautiful river, on the way beautiful temples are there. Must Visit Places in kullu include: Trithan Valley, Great Himalayan National Park, Kheer Ganga, Bijlimahadevan temple, Hangoi Mata Temple and Vaishno Devi Temple.

For Shopping, Kullu shawl factory is a must visit place. Food, as such is good and you must try MOMOS, Thukpa and Sidhuu. Activities that kept me engaged was trekking primarily, Bijlii Mahadev, Shalang Naalang, Teej these are the peaks very near to Kullu. Travellers can arrive both by flight and train. Nearest Airport is in Kullu whereas nearest Railway Station is Ambala. I would advise you to visit by train, if you have time at hand. As it always saves you quite a few bucks. So, pack your bags and be ready for one of the exhilarating experience of your life.

"Fantastic Kullu-Manali"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Nov 27, 2015
I wanted to go to Kullu-Manali! Now May 2015 was the time to explore the beautiful Himachal! I took a shared ride in a mini-van from Dharmashala to Manali. I reached Manali early in the morning. I checked into a hotel for 2N & 3D package with food. For the quality of food, room and the tours it doesn't look expensive.

The best thing to do in Manali is visiting Rothang Pass. The drive is fantastic, the destination is fantastic! The scenery through the valleys is majestic. Rothang Pass is a natural divide between the Kullu Valley in the south and the Spiti Valley in the north. It is an ancient trade route between two areas and is open from May to November. The Manali market is a nice place for shopping. I spent more money here shopping Great sweaters, shawls, stoles, silk and so many things. It is a good place for eating out too! Good restaurants are all around.
