Far from the swarming town of Kullu, tucked away in a remote corner, the valley of Tirthan lay quiet and calm. Nature was more than generous when she gave the Tirthan valley her gifts of natural beauty. It attracts tourists and travelers who long to take the road less travelled, seeking the quiet and peace of a getaway far from the crowds, where beauty lies spread in nature that is still unspoilt. Surrounded by the Seraj region a rich mountain valley culture like this is a rare treat.

Tirthan Valley is a virgin valley situated at a height of 1600 Meters in the Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh. It derives its name from the Tirthan River which originates from the Hanskund Peak (4800 meters). Tirthan Valley has a pleasant climate in summers and is also home to The Great Himalayan National Park. It is just the perfect place to relax & forget. The lazily winding roads pass through the tiny hamlets of Shoja, Gushaini, Mungla, Chalogi & Nagni. The Tirthan river is also quite famous for Trout fishing.

Detailed Itinerary:

Day 1:

Arrival at Panarsa (about 65 kms before Manali on Chandigarh-Manali Highway). The cab will pick you up and straightaway drive you to the Guest House/Hotel/Home Stay in the Tirthan Valley. As the guests typically like to enjoy riverside character of the area, therefore post Breakfast/Brunch/Lunch they can explore the water based adventure activities such as River crossing, Trout fishing etc. and can even explore the local surroundings.

Day 2:

Enjoy your breakfast & then proceed for Jalori Pass which is situated at an altitude of 3134 meters & is one of the steepest passes to drive in Himachal separating Kullu valley and Shimla Valley.

After reaching the top of Jalori Pass, spend your time viewing Lush coniferous forests, emerald meadows strewn with exotic flora, soaring snowy peaks and pristine glaciers. After that you can proceed for the Serolsar Lake which is at a distance of around 5 Kms from Jalori Pass. On the way back a quick visit to a small but beautiful waterfall at Jibhi.

Day 3:

Post breakfast proceed to the Chehni Kothi, which also happens to be the tallest standing structure of its kind in the entire Western Himalayas. Currently, the Great Tower of Kothi is 45 meters (approx.) tall. On the way back you can also visit the temple of Shringa Rishi, presiding local deity of the Tirthan valley. The temple too is a wooden wonder erected by the local people as a tribute to Shringa Rishi. In the evening return back for dinner & night stay.

Day 4:

After Breakfast, a short hike to one of the nearby hidden waterfalls in the Tirthan Valley. 

Drop to Panarsa. Evening departure to Delhi/Chandigarh.
