KULLU & MANALI VALLEY: is a broad open valley formed by the Beas River between Manali and Largi. This valley is famous for its beauty and its majestic hills covered with Pine and Deodar Forest and sprawling Apple Orchards and snow capped peaks of the valley. Kullu valley is sandwiched between the Pir Panjal, Lower Himalayan and Great Himalayan range. Kullu is the capital town of this valley & it is located on the banks of the Beas River. Kullu Valley is the largest valley in the Kullu district, in Himachal Pradesh, state of India. The Beas River runs through the middle of the valley.
Kullu Valley, also known as the "Valley of Gods", or "Dev Bhumi" It is full of temples rather every village has a local temple. It is well known for the seven day festival of Kullu Dussehra, a celebration of Avatar Lord Rama's victory over the evil king Ravana. The festival takes place in the months of October or November, depending upon the Hindu calendar.
Kullu was once known as Kulanthpitha - 'the end of the habitable world'. Beyond rose the forbidding heights of the Greater Himalayas and, by the banks of the shining river Beas, lay the fabled 'Silver Valley'.
