This little-touristed valley, relatively prosperous from apple-, vegetable- and maize-growing, runs northeast from tiny Hatkoti, set between steep hills 100km east of Shimla at the Pabbar River’s junction with the Jubbal. Hatkoti’s 8th-century Kinnauri-style Hatkeshwari Mata Temple, dedicated to Durga as Mahishasurmardini (slayer of the buffalo demon Mahishasur), and the neighbouring Shiva temple and Pandava shrines, attract many worshippers, especially when Shaivite pilgrims convene during the Chaitra Navratra and Asvin Navratra festivals in April and October.

From Hatkoti, the Pabbar valley runs up past the town of Rohru then eastward between 4000m-plus peaks to meet the range forming the west side of Kinnaur’s Sangla Valley; there are hiking and trekking possibilities.
