The Kullu Valley, a delightful region in the northwest Indian Himalayas, is known as the Valley of the Gods. The valley spreads its charm on either side of the upper reaches of the River Beas. Kullu is also known for its historic Buddhist monasteries and temples, religious festivals, and hot springs.
When Spring arrives in April, the whole Kullu valley will be in blossom due to flowering of Apple flowers. Kullu is at its most colorful, with pink and white flowers in the valley while the higher slopes are shining with gorgeous red rhododendrons.
As the summer hits and most of India is going through extreme heat, the climate in Kullu is pleasant with daytime temperatures barely reaching 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit). Wild and garden plants are flowering at this time.
As summer winds down in August, apples are in fruiting. It's rainy season, but Kullu falls in rain shadow areas, so there's not much rain. In October, the leaves fall, with Diwali (festival of color) and Dushera as exciting festivals.
