Arrow A peep into.. Valley of Gods

Well I would say its a staticlogue since I am not venturing out much but just relaxing the enjoying the serene surroundings, so I will let the pictures do the justice and provide small comments whereever possible.


When I reached here it was bright & sunny and the flowers were at their bloom.

And we had to succumb to the confines of the room with the heater run with firewood, yes you can even cook on it.

Rajesh no snow in Kerala and the kind of mountains in the pics are fold more like the ones in HP, Uttranchal etc.

Hillram, Kerala would be, "God's Own Country".

Similarly HP is "Land of the Gods"

Nice pics.. To be on the safer side, I guess, it's somewhere in North India!
It's definitely not Kerala!

As some people have guessed it.

Valley of Gods = Kullu

Kullu valley is situated at an altitude of 1220m on the banks of river Beas in Himachal Pradesh. Technically both Kullu & Manali fall under distt:Kullu.

Interestingly H.P. has one of the most beautiful birds as its state birds.

@HW, I am trying to stay away from the usual city routine and hence the responses are slow

Default A New Day

The day started being slightly foggy but as the sun rose it became really clear and the flowers were again blooming.

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-bloom-sun.jpg

This is the Icy, the flower petals fold up after sunset and open up under the sun.

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-fresh-snow.jpg

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-nearby-peaks.jpg

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-suns-out.jpg

But as I looked around there was a layer of fresh snow all around.

The Beas

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-fresh-snow-sun.jpg

When the sun shines on the peak, it seems its made of silver.

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-forest-rich-mountains.jpg

The forest rich mountains

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-apple-orch-under-mntns.jpg

The apple orchards.

Read in the newspaper too, out of the 37km of Rohtang pass, BRDO had cleared 13kms and were earlier expecting to clear the rest by 7th May but now with this fresh snowfall, they have moved back with their equipments and now it will take much more time.

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-boating.jpg

Seeing this bright opportunity, we went for a boating spot nearby.

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-trad-house.jpg

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-tradl-house.jpg

Also went to the nearby village with traditional houses (except the dishtv), everything about these houses is traditional, made of wood, cattle stock at the ground floor and families living above, all these keep the house warm.

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-gods-rest-house.jpg


This is the rest house for the lord Vishnu, the village had invited and preparations were in full swing for welcoming the god to the village including a feast in the coming days (more on this will come later )

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-evening-sun.jpg

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-evening-town.jpg

Also captured the evening sun and the town from a distance.

A peep into.. Valley of Gods-road-manali.jpg

Coming up Next: Road to Manali
