Journey to Kulu in the Himalayas (1893)

From Bajaura a pretty path planted with apricot trees leads along the right bank of the Bias via Shamsi to Sultanpur. At Shamsi there are several stones on the left side of the road and in front of the door of a hut there is a Buddhist wheel carved on one of them. The stones are similar to those found in Nagar, but no one can say anything about them.

Kooloo Valley Tea Company

Kulu tea is said to possess excellent taste and aroma. Its fame went as far as London. The tea of Kulu was sold to private enterprises and some was also exported to England, but most of it went to the British military cantonments established throughout India. The ‘Kulu Valley Tea Company’ received the first prizes for “the best specimen of first class tea, grown and manufactured in the Panjab” and “the best specimen of black tea grown in India” at the 1864 Lahore Exhibition.
