Notes from a trip to Kullu
I have just returned from a trip to Kullu. I have been to Kullu several times, and since I am born and brought up in Himachal, I guess I don’t always notice everything, sort of taking it everything for granted.
This time around, I looked longer, thought deeper, and recorded some moments on my camera. Here are a few snapshots form the trip.

Hanogi Mata Temple in Kullu; The temple and surrounding shops bore the brunt of some huge boulders that hurled down the mountain. Thankfully, there were no casualties or major damage; Photo: Abhinav Kaushal

The river Beas flowing along the road making its way down the valley in Kullu; Photo: Abhinav Kaushal
While the Beas river has its own charm, this bridge is not something for the faint-hearted – it hangs suspended in mid-air above the Beas, and stretches more than a 100 metres in length! Photo: Abhinav Kaushal

The murky waters of the river Parvati with a blanket of fog over them, stunning mountains against smoky clouds … Ahhh… ; Photo: Abhinav Kaushal
