The Great Himalayan National Park, Himachal
largest protected area in the state of Himachal Pradesh, the
Park nestles within the folds of the amazing Kullu terrain.
Lush coniferous forests, emerald meadows strewn with exotic
flora, soaring snowy peaks and pristine glaciers make for
an ideal Himalayan retreat.
The secluded Sainj and Tirthan valleys are home to a plethora
of fauna - wild mountain goats like the bharal, goral and
serow, the brown bear and predators like the leopard and the
elusive snow leopard. Different varieties of pheasants - monal,
khalij cheer, tragopan and other exotic Himalayan birds can
be found in the region. An added thrill is the trek to Rakte
Sar, the origin of the Sainj river.
The best time to visit
is April-June and September-October.
