6 Must Visit Tourist Attractions in Tirthan Valley

Himachal Pradesh is one of the most beautiful, serene, aesthetic, and travel-friendly states. The famous hill stations of the state such as Manali, Dharamshala, and Shimla bustle with tourists throughout the year. With the growing influx of tourism, these places have become overcrowded and offbeat destinations have emerged. These destinations offer you a chance to connect with nature and are more peaceful. Tirthan Valley is one of the new emerging offbeat destinations in Himachal Pradesh, it is beautiful, serene, and largely uncrowded.

It is a good place for hiking, trekking, rock climbing, river crossing, and fishing. The valley is located in the Kullu district and like many other valleys in the Himalayan region is named on the major river flowing through it which is Tirthan here.

# Chehni Kothi

Chehni Kothi is a village in the upper reaches of Banjar. It is known for its huge tower-like structure. The structure is similar to fort structures in Kinnaur such as Kamru and Kalpa fort but the one in Chehni Kothi is taller. In fact, it is the tallest traditional structure in Himachal Pradesh. The structure was even taller than what it is today but unfortunately was damaged in the early 20th century due to a massive earthquake in the region.

# Jalori Pass

Jalori pass is a high altitude pass connecting Kullu with Shimla. It is 16Km away from Jibhi. Jalori Pass is named on a temple known as Jalori Mata Temple or Jalori Jot, which can be spotted once you reach the pass. It’s situated at a height of 3120 meters above sea level.

In summers Jalori Pass can be a place to start your hike towards Raghupur Fort and Sirolsar Lake but in winters these hikes can’t be done because of heavy snowfall. Cars can easily reach Jalori Pass in the summers. In winter cars can only reach Shoja, a town 5 km before Jalori Pass. From Shoja one has to walk in the snow to reach the pass.
