Chanderkhani Valley stretches East to West perpendicular to Kullu Valley with the Chanderkhani pass (3660m) at the top of the valley acting as a bridge from Kullu Valley into Malana Valley on the other side. Before the road from Jari to Malana was completed, the Chanderkhani Pass was an important transit point for foreigners wishing to visit Malana. 

 

These days it is a serene apple producing region that today sees very little tourism compared to the rest of Kullu-Manali and Parvati Valley. 

 

Three villages produce the bulk of the charas in Chanderkhani Valley:

 

Rumsu - North Facing (2100m) 

Pulag - North Facing (2500m) 

Hallan - South Facing (2100m) 

 

Terpene profiles range from Mango-Garlic to Gassy-Piney with some rotten fruits coming through occasionally along with sweet, fruity outliers. 

 

Rumsu is the darkest, wettest place in the valley and accordingly the plants here have strong resistance to humidity and stretch really hard for the light. Rumsu is the best village to hunt resistance and tolerance to humidity related issues. Garlic/Shallot undertones are very common around the village in the feral population.

 

Pulag is the highest in altitude and the furthest village up the valley, nestled below the Chanderkhani pass and nearby glaciers. Fields here are often above 3000m and so due to the altitude, exposition and good quality soils the landrace in Pulag expresses its full potential in Chanderkhani Valley. 

 

Hallan is on the south facing side of the valley and benefits from a lot of sunlight. The countless apple terraces that make up the lower growing area afford the village a fantastic reputation for its charas' taste while the upper are known for their potency.
