About Parvati Valley: Chilling nights under the bare star-lit sky on the foothills of snow-capped Himalayan peaks, lush green landscapes of the sometimes narrow and sometimes wide valley, splashing waters of the pristine Parvati river, fluffy white clouds mindlessly grazing the hilltops, endless views of thick sprawling coniferous forests, fascinating hot water springs offering cure for ailments – experience nature at its unbridled and whimsical best, in the dreamy and mysterious valley of legends - the Parvati Valley. From the confluence of the Parvati river with river Beas just above Bhuntar, the valley stretches eastwards, in the Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh in Northern India. The region is quite popular for its Israeli subculture, and serves as a hot-spot for travelling ex-military men of Israel. That it is a haunt for all dope-lovers, is an open secret, and the valley is often called the ‘hash capital of India’.
