Kullu, best known as the land of Deities, is a beautiful valley gifted by Mother Nature to Himachal Pradesh, India. Earlier, it was known by the name Kulanthpitha. The meaning of Kulanthpitha is “the end of the habitable world”. And true, when you visit this place, you’ll really find it having something divine in its soil.
Natural views, mountains, foggy-misty climate, snow falls (in winter season) and enchanting beauty of the place attract people to visit. And this is the main reason that most of the tourists (foreigners, Indians and people from adjacent regions) including families and new wedding couples, love to visit here. Millions of people every year come here.
