The Banjar valley in Kullu district is one of the least explored valleys of Himachal. It is a part of the Seraj region that extends from Jalori pass to Shikari Devi in Janjehli. It is located at the confluence of river Tirthan and Pushpabhad and is also the gateway to the Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP). The valley has good weather, stunning views, plenty of adventure and great value for money. Visit the valley during fairs and festivals like Nav Samvat, Hum, Faguli, Otan, Virshi etc. to witness the local traditions.
The nearest airport is in Bhuntar 48 km from Banjar, but has limited flights. The best way to reach is via Delhi. Take the Himachal Tourism Bus overnight Volvo bus to Manali. Get off at Aut from where you can take a taxi.
