The Rivers including river Yamuna and Ganges in upper reaches of Himalayan Mountains are yet some rivers and rivulets which are unpolluted and pristine. The analysis of physico-chemical Parameters of natural water of tributaries of River Beas in Palampur area of outer Himalayas was done by Following the Standard Methods for Examination of Water & Waste Water for analysis. Range of all the physico - chemical parameters was found within acceptable limits. As a result, water of all three tributaries viz. site I (Poon), Site II (Awa) & Site III (Mole) was found suitable for drinking purpose and will be helpful to solve the problem of drinking water in metropolitan cities. This can be supplied as drinking water after primary treatment at national level and opens up a new scope for starting a bottled water Industry by private organizations, thus will also help in providing employment to the local people of Tribal area where the scope of employment is very limited.
