Surrounded with peace and serenity, a cool breeze gently caresses your face. As you sip your kadak chai amongst the floating clouds, the day’s first rays through the snow-capped peaks melt the humdrum away. What will the day bring? In Kullu, the valley of Gods amongst the mighty Himalayas, you simply never know.
Dotted with sacred lakes and temples & lush forests and views, Kullu boasts of being on the list of both soul seekers and adventurers. From Kulant Peeth to now Kullu, this god’s abode might have had many names, but the essence of the valley remains in its rich past and bounteous nature.
Kullu is both a love letter and guide to the bewitching valley where you may intimate yourself with its history, traditions, and people. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a journey to both the past and present of Kullu. Immerse yourself in this land of the misty mountains, magnificent hills, sprawling apple plantations, and hospitable people who will make you feel like you are finally home.
Dilaram Shabab is known as the ‘Green Man of the Tirthan Valley’ because of his endless endeavours towards protecting its ecology. A former member of the Legislative Assembly (1967-77), he continuously fought for sustainable development, conservation, and restoration. He even fought the forest mafia and put his efforts into earning the Great Himalayan National Park its current status. He is the man behind saving the Tirthan Stream, rich in fresh water trout, from its imminent destruction by fighting against the proposal of constructing nine Micro Hydro Projects. In July 2018, he passed away at the age of 94 in his native village, Gushaini.
