Kullu Dusshera

A plateful of Himachali Meat Chawal.

Cooked with water, spices, coriander leafs and sometimes chilies, the Himachali meat chawal is a local favourite to try out anytime of the year but specially during the cold winters.

Buying shoes take on a different dimension underneath a brightly illuminated tent in Kullu's Dhalpur Grounds during the festival of Dusshera.

The well of death, known as 'Maut ka Kuan', is a popular attraction during the Dusshera festival held in Kullu Town's Dhalpur grounds showcasing a series of death defying stunts by experts on motorcycles.

The gods come to town.
