Tirthan Valley is a narrow valley located in Kullu distict of Himachal Pradesh. Its still an offbeat destination but slowly getting popular. We visited this beautiful place in September 2021.

Tirthan Valley is named after the Tirthan river that flows through it, which is a tributory of . Sainj valley valley adjacent to Tirthan valley is named after Sainj River which is a tributory of Tirthan River. Banjar and Jibhi valley is also adjacent to the Tirthan Valley.

Tirthan is around 500 KMs from Delhi and takes almost 12 hours to reach. We started out journey from Ghaziabad and reached Tirthan in the evening. Road till Kiratpur was in excelent condition and 4 to 6 lane except from Ambala to Kharar. 4 lane work till Swarghat is also complete. After Swarghat the 4 lane highway goes through a new alignment and meets the highway near Sundar Nagar. From here the road is under construction till you reach Aut Tunnel. We need to turn right just before Aut Tunnel towards Tirthan Valley.

Now some pictures.

It seems that you took all the photos from fast moving car only. So most of them are blur or not clear.
Any way thanks for sharing the trip.
