Kullu/ Raison

Literally the
valley of hundred temples and a thousand derties, it offers peace, a
mysterious, spiritual peace which pervades every nook, every corner, and a
peace breathed into the mountains, trees, stars and streams by countless sages
and `rishis’ who came here to contemplate. 16 kms away from Kullu, the sight is
ideal for spending a quite holiday in solitary splendor and for holding youth
camps. There are a large number of orchards in this part of the valley. HPTDC
has log cabins for comfortable stay.

Stay in a camp 16 Km away from Kullu towards Manali and enjoy the site
surrounded by orchards. An interesting point to start trekking or walking in
groups or alone.
