Whether it was the sun shining our whole stay or finding good coffee, the village of Pulga had a certain charm about it. The villagers were friendly but did not appear to let foreign visitors affect their usual way of living. There were many children in the village, who would help out in the fields, gathering fodder for the cows, or tending the wheat and other vegetable crops after school alongside other family members.
The architecture of the village was also one of its appealing factors. There were hardly any new concrete houses with most of the village consisting of these beautifully grand houses in the Kathkuni style.
Pulga is about an hours walk from the one road that leads up Parvati Valley. There is another village which sits on the opposite side of the valley and by comparing the two villages it is clear that the ease of concrete transportation results in a less traditional architecture and consequently, a less charming village.
