Sit in surrounding so beautiful that you are awestruck by the beauty. Walk with no destination in mind and chance upon a hidden village. Drink water from streams and party with unknown people in their style. Driven by these thoughts there is a place which provides an opportunity for all these things in to do list. Parvati Valley is situated in Northern India state of Himachal Pradesh. The valley runs eastward through a steep-sided valley from Bhuntarin the Kullu District in Himachal. The Parvati river enters the Beas just above Bhuntar and its beautiful valley stretches back up to the hot springs at Manikaranand beyond into the 5000 m height of the great Himalayan Range. The valley has a well-deserved reputation for its natural beauty and several villages have been transformed into backpacker hangouts, including cheap accommodation, International food and nonstop music to visitors.
There are a number of beautiful destinations to visit in the valley with a breathtaking view and enormous natural beauty. The trek destinations, rivers, villages, peaks, towns, markets and everything about the valley is phenomenal. Some of the famous tourist destinations like Kullu and Manali are a few kilometers away from the valley. While popular places in the valley like Manikaran, Pin Valley National Park, and Pin Parvati Pass are easy to travel via transport facilities, some other parts of the valley are only accessible through treks. The best time to visit the valley is from the month of March to May. The place is extremely hard to summarize in words. It is green, beautiful and largely unattained.
