Great Himalayan National Park
It is a place that will quench your thirst for amazing wildlife and fishing. The Great Himalayan National Park is the best spot for angling and several steps have been taken to protect the belt from undesirable impacts.
Almost 80 Kms. from Kullu, Jalori Pass is a stunning place for trekking and picnic at an altitude of 3120 m above the sea level. Pack your bag, lunch and gear up your shoes to enjoy the stunning view of the great Himalayas with Dhauladhar stretched in a line peaking from far behind.
River crossing in the Tirthan Valley is an adventure sport for people who are looking for some adrenaline rush in the quiet valley. A person is tied to a safety harness and slides from one point to the other, with the turbulent River Tirthan gushing underneath. The icy cold spray of the river while taking on the sport, sure is a motivating factor for enthusiasts.
Serloskar Lake, another major attraction of the village is located about 5 kms from Jalori Pass. The lake has clear water which remains so despite of several leaves falling in to it.
Trekking in Great Himalayan National Park
The Great Himalayan National Park is a blessing in disguise for nature lovers. From lush green forests to blooming flowers and meandering streams, this place also houses various well laid out trek paths.
There couldn’t be a more ideal place for fishing than the crystal clear Tirthan River, a tributary of Beas. Filled with brown and rainbow trouts, this river has over the year become a favourite place among the tourists as an angler spot.
A refreshing sight of two waterfalls only a short distance apart from one another is something you do not want to miss. Located on the same walking trail, they lie at walking distance of one hour.
