The Parvati Valley rises Eastwards from the confluence of the Parvati and Beas Rivers, at Bhuntar in Kullu District. Several tributaries in the Valley feed the main Parvati River. Numerous waterfalls are observed cascading down the steep valley sides.
From Khirganga to Tunda Bhuj (3,285m), the valley cuts a gorge through the mountains. As the altitude increases towards the Basuki Nal tributary, thick coniferous forests and silver-birch groves gradually make way for patches of alpine meadows with scattering of boulders.
