Lug valley

Lug Valley is a valley in the Kullu District of the Himalayan region in the state of Himachal Pradesh, India.

For the last 150 years, the people of the valley have been forest contractors in extracting timber from the forest. Today, the main forest contractors in the Himalayan region are still found in the Lug valley.[1]

The Lug valley in Kullu is reportedly the place where the concept of using cables and trolleys for transportation was first employed by the British Forest Department to transport timber out of Himachal Pradesh forests in the early twentieth century.[1]
