We tread on many legends, Pauranik or otherwise, scriptures and references in old Sanskrit literature, folk-stories when we traverse Kulu-Manali region. Kulu as mentioned was known as Kulantapitha, which means the end of the inhabited world. This was so because the area remained secluded from the outside world for a long time.
The population was scanty and so the plain people termed it as the land's end. That Rohtang Pass was not negotiable normally in the ancient days till the Gods intervened and opened up two mountain barriers is a common belief.
