The Parvati River rises from the Man Talai Glacier below the Pin Parbati Pass. This pass connects the fertile and lush Parvati valley on the Kullu side with the Pin valley on the Spiti
side. Situated at an elevation of 5,319 metres, the pass has now become a popular trekking route.
The river flows in a gradual curve from the north-northwest to the west-southwest past the pilgrimage centre of Manikaran. The Parvati River flows to Lahaul across the Sara Umga La Pass, then to Spiti across the Pin Parbati Pass and moves on to the recently discovered Debsa Pass. The river has fine first-growth forests in its upper reaches which are being degraded as a consequence of development of its vast hydro-electric potential. The Parvati River also has geothermal springs
on the banks of the river at Manikaran
