The kaleidoscopic bazaars of HP are brimming with superb silver jewelry, glass bangles, bead necklaces and exquisite cashmere shawls, head gears and tweeds all hand-made by the cheerful local population. The handicrafts made here are in high demand by collectors and cultural aficionados the world over.

There are frequent folk dance and musical performances, and visitors are invited to watch or even participate! At most times of the year, tourists will come across exuberantly colorful religious festivals which we guarantee will be a unique experience.

In October, the natives of Kulu and Manali celebrate the world famous festival of Dusseraha in which joyfully singing and dancing devotees carry the idols of their tribal deities in gorgeously decorated palanquins to the temples. These week-long festivities draw holiday crowds from all over the world and the spectacle lingers in their memories long after they leave this magical land also called "The Valley of the Gods".
