Raison is an enchanting village in the Kullu valley along the River Beas. It is located around 24kms from Manali on the Kullu-Manali Highway. The Himalayan valley is wide around this region and surrounded by lofty snow-capped peaks. There are many walking trails along the river offering an insight into the rich flora and fauna of this valley.
Travellers looking for peace and serenity prefer to stay here instead of the crowded Manali. The chirping of the birds and the sound of the waters of the Beas provide a unique calmness to the mind and the soul. The breathtaking sight of the fruit trees bordered by the snow capped peaks casts a spell on all visitors. It is also popular with the Hindi film industry and many movies and commercials have been shot around these picturesque locales.
The local market at Chattan Sheri has a few small shops selling grocery, vegetables and other daily requirements. Like the rest of Himachal, this valley too experiences occasional snowfall during the winter months from December to March. Many luxury resorts have come up in this area to provide travelers with a great Himalayan valley experience.
The entire region is dotted with beautiful orchards of apple, apricot, pear and plum. The apple plucking season lasts from August to October every year when the area comes alive with fruit merchants and traders.
