Trip description

Kullu Valley expedition

This expedition is a feast of nature experience combined with a Himalayan cultural life in all its glory. Based in the Pin Panjal Ranges in the Western Himalayas, our trek begins at Naggar. We’ll follow the ridge between the Beas and Parvati Rivers, with stunning panoramic views of gorgeous valleys, snow capped mountains, peaceful meadows, ponds, and cascades that feed the rivers! This trek, in the holy and majestic Himalayas, is not a commercial trekking route (it is actually our ‘secret’ route), and brings you up to almost 4.500 meters

The Kullu Dussehra Festival will be set in motion, which is an intriguing melting pot of history, culture, customs and the entire valley remains active with religious fervor for one week. More than one hundred gods/goddesses mounted on colourful palanquins participate in this procession.

What’s included

  • Porters, guides and cooks
  • Full board trekking services
  • Transportation
  • English speaking guide
