About Tirthan Valley 

 

Being at an altitude of 1600 m, Tirthan Valley is surrounded by mighty Himalayan mountains. The valley is a popular weekend getaway due to all the adventure-related activities it offers its visitors.

Tirthan is derived from the Tirthan River. Located in the Kullu district, the river which gave its name originates from Hanskund peak in the Great Himalayan National Park.

 

Its beauty and simplicity of the people and the valley itself makes it a very popular welcome respite from all other destinations in Himachal Pradesh. It has now become famous among travelers. However, it can still be counted as an offbeat destination when it is compared to places like Manali, Kasol or Kullu.
