Reasons to go to Kullu

1Chug that water like it were beer!
Chug that water like it were beer!

Since the main function of water in the body is to regulate temperature, when you get extremely dehydrated, your body feels imbalanced and has a difficult time maintaining a regular temperature of 98 degrees. So drink plenty of water and lay off alcoholic and caffeinated beverages. You can even take a lot of fruits.

2Travel Will Strip You Off Your Ego
Travel Will Strip You Off Your Ego

Travel will make you question your existence. You’ll lose yourself and find the real you. All the labels, pretentious armors we carry around will be left behind. You’ll stop following the herd and do things just because you want to. HolidayIQ Traveller Radha Bordia from Mumbai shares, “Based in the Himalayas, with lush green mountains on either side, and Beas River on the other side. A picturesque view. Kullu is famous for its River Rafting. Kullu also is a base camp for many treks. These treks take you to places in the district which are accessible only on foot or the Hybrid Donkey. Hence Chandrakhani Pass, Sar Pass are a must. Treks are organised every year by YHAI to these unexplored places. Nature walks are also a must try.”

Kullu Overview

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.

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.
