meadows encircled by the rushing streams and meandering brooks, flung east &
west, a fairly wide area is open to the tourists, the trekkers, the

of Kullu is famous for its colorful Dussehra festival. A mela springs up
during the festival which is celebrated with a great deal of singing,
dancing and festivity.

valley on the National Highway leading to Leh. The landscape here is breath
taking. One sees well-defined snow capped peaks, the Beas river with its
clear water meanders through the town. On the other side are deodar and pine
trees, tiny fields and fruit orchards. It is an excellent place for a
holiday, a favorite resort for trekkers to Lahaul, Spiti, Kinnaur, Leh and
Zanskar regions in Kashmir valley. The Manali market is crowded with myriads
of interesting shops selling Tibetan carpets and crafts and the appetizing
aroma of steaming noodles hangs about the little restaurants. Interesting
routes into the surrounding valleys, over the high passes, are provided with
tourist huts and rest houses for trekking enthusiasts.
Major Adventure Sports Sites
The Manali skiing expeditions involve helicopters, which are going to drop
keen skiers onto peaks as high as 6,500m. The high peaks reduce the wind
speed at lower levels where one skis, resulting in consistent, light and
powdery snow. Powder skiing is easier to learn with the new thick kind of
skis, especially if you are new to skiing.
Manali has spectacular views of snowcapped peaks and is surrounded by
towering peaks from all around. Manali's major asset is its proximity to the
snowline. It has a flourishing orchard industry, a popular honeymoon
destination and trailhead for numerous treks as well as a great countryside
ideal for adventure sport lovers.
An angelers paradise, Kullu has several spots for both trout and mahaseer
as well as other fish. Acclaimed as the best sport fish in the world, both
brown and Raibow trout are found in Kullus Stream. The upper reaches of the
river Beas in Kullu valley, and its streams like the Sarvari, Parbati,
Saint, Hurla are excellent for the sport.

springs-gush, hot and medicinal - emerging out of the mountains at Vashisht.
It is one of the biggest villages in Kullu district. About 6-km from

Places of Interest in Kullu
In the 17th century, Raja Jagat Singh of Kulu committed a great wrong. To
atone for the sin he sent a senior courtier to Ayodhya for a statue of Lord
Raghunath - Lord Ram. This temple was built by Raja Jagat Singh to house the
image and even today, is greatly revered. The shrine houses an image of Shri
Raghunath in his chariot.
Bijli Mahadev Temple
Set on a spur that offers some spectacular views, this temple is famous for
its 20m high rod that periodically draws lightning, which shatters the
'Shivalinga' and scorches the building. Using only butter as adhesive, the
'linga' is then carefully pieced together by the temple pundit.
