Kullu is known for its ancient temples, apple orchards and the annual Dusshera Festival. Kullu valley is gifted every thing that you can imagine. It is also famous for its handicrafts and woolens like shawl, caps, puhla, namdas and patoos. The best time to visit Kullu is during Dusshera in the month of October. Kullu Valley Treks is the most popular amongst trekkers in Himachal Pradesh. Treks in the Solang sub-valley and Kullu-Jogindernagar are easy and short. Hamta Pass, Chandra Tal, Chanderkhani and Tos Nala are hard treks while the trek to Pin-Parbati Pass is long and strenuous.

Kullu was once known as Kulanthpitha, which means the end of the habitable world.
Beyond rose the forbidding heights of the Greater Himalayas,
and by the banks of the shining river Beas, laid the fabled 'Silver Valley'.
Here is the core of an intricate web of numerous valleys - each of which is a visual delight
and seems more beautiful than the other.
The mountain scapes remain spectacular whether in brilliant sunshine or in the haze of the mist.
The 'Silver Valley' has nature's treasures that lie carelessly scattered as flowers on the high meadows
. The town of Kullu has long been a centre of faith.
In the 17th century, Raja Jagat Singh installed here an idol of Lord Raghunathji,
which he brought from Ayodhya.
As a mark of his penance, he placed the idol on his throne and it became the presiding deity of the valley.
