About Kullu

Kullu is an important tourist destination in Himachal Pradesh. Kullu lies on the banks of Beas River at an altitude of 4000 ft above sea level. It was once termed as Kulanthpitha which means “The end of the Habitable Land." Kullu is wrapped by the Pir Panjal, Lower Himalayan, and Great Himalayan ranges. Its pine and deodar forests, flowering meadows, meandering Beas river, rocky ridges, and apple orchards make a tourist spellbound and wanting to come back for more. A good time to be in Kullu is during the Kullu Dussera, when the town and the inhabitants are in gaiety. This festival is celebrated in the month of October or November to commemorate the killing of the demon king Ravana at the hands of Lord Rama. During this festival, nearly 200 deities from nearby settlements are brought down to Kullu and devotees throng the town to pay their obeisance to Lord Raghunath. Similarly Holi celebrations are an experience too with the festivities lasting over two days.

Local cuisine is mainly of rice, lentils, vegetables with lots of spices like cardamom, cinnamom, red chilies, cloves, etc . Few of their lip-smacking dishes are Kaddu ka Khatta, Guchhi Matter, Sepu Vadi, Kullu Trout, Grilled fish, Chicken Anaardana, etc. Their desserts like Mittha and Kangra region sweetmeat are preferred delicacies.

Kullu is famous for its fruit orchards and the tourists can bite into some apples, plums, pears, and almonds and even take some along. Pashima shawls, caps, and Gadmas can be purchased from the Bhutti weavers colony which is located 6 km south of Kullu. Tourists should check out the stalls in Akhara Bazaar for Thanka Paintings.
