Day 1: Kasol-Chalal
Misty morning, tall trees, untouched hills and a breath of fresh air - this exactly what Kasol is! Upon reaching Kasol and a bit of walking, reach your campsite. Enjoy the greener and a happier space by the riverside. Take some rest and have your fill of breakfast. Once you are up and ready, it will be time to explore the ‘Little Amsterdam’ while making our way to Chalal. While walk through the lanes of Kasol, you will notice many Israeli cafes and shops to buy your souvenirs from. Gradually, we will walk towards, what is known as Trance and Psychedelic party village- Chalaal. This little village is tucked in the conifer dense forest. The walk doesn’t take more than 2 hours hyphenated with breaks. One can sit at the end of the village admiring the beauty of fiercely flowing Parvati river.
Later in the evening, we will come back to the camping site; dance the night away around bonfire while having taste-buds teasing dinner.
Day 2: Kasol - Tosh
On this day,wake up to beautiful sunrise. Take this day as it comes and don’t forget to feel the lovely light feeling that must be lingering in your mind. We will get ready for your trek to Tosh- the last village in the valley, Tosh is at a height of 7,874 feet. It is a land blessed by Shiva, they say, and the local priest asserts to visions of the lord with his consort Parvati when snow falls. The drive from Kasol to Tosh parking stand is around an hour’s drive and the last becomes a wee bit treacherous. Upon reaching, we will start our trek- one of the most beautiful scenic routes that you will experience. This little hamlet, constantly, dwarfed by intimidating mountains is at the heart of Parvati Hydel Project. It's a goat track which traverses the hill with gradual inclines and declines.
Day 3: Tosh - Kheerganga
The trek to to Tosh and Kheerganga encompasses everything- walking through rivers, waterfalls, holding on to dear life on narrow walkways, apple orchards - you name it. If you're a regular hiker then this one is a dream to do. One of the most beautiful treks, so picturesque that you feel an impulse to reach for your camera or pinch yourself hard to make sure it’s real.
The amazing landscapes, waterfalls and the alpine meadows are bound to make you stop and feel it and soak it in! Trek from Tosh to Kheer Ganga is 15kmAll your tiredness will be washed away with a sight of the mystical hot springs of Kheerganga. 10 minutes into the pool and you'll be tripping because of the sulphur fumes.
Do not be surprised if you hear Dholak and groups singing and beating some Shiv Natraj Music. It is one of a kind experience! Later, we will gather around the bonfire, have our tummies full and spend the night under beautiful blanket of stars
Day 4: Kheerganga- Kasol
Enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful morning. It seems like a spectrum painted on the canvas. Spend sometime doing nothing at all. There's joy in doing nothing at all. Just laze around in the grass under towering pine trees with the sun filtering through the foliage. While coming back be prepared to leave a part of yourself behind.
