Location : Situated in Himachal > Parvati valley > And no more a hidden gem How to reach Car : Rent a car from delhi or whichsoever state you are going from : Can book rides on bla bla car too : Can take your own car too roads are not too bad (Rainy seasons are not so subtle) Bus: Get a bus from delhi to bhuntar (Lots of buses are available) . From bhuntar take another local bus , car , jeep to Kasol Which is again a so called village (not anymore) almost sort of basecamp. There are lot of cheap hotels in kasol stay there,roam around, go to cafes.Try ginger lemon honey tea, pizzas and hash brownies. Now you have 3 major options of trekking 1. Malana 2. Kheerganga 3. Tosh 1. Malana is basically is a village up in woods . It's a different world altogether . Drive a bit and then a short trek 3-4 km and you will be there . Read pros and cons , do's and don'ts before going not much Chill Place 2. Same Drive a bit and trek a bit and you will be there . Tosh is famous for its outrageous parties. Party lovers must go. 3. Kheerganga is a set up village up in mountains . Drive 7-8 km from kasol to barcheni . You can park your own vehicle and start trek its safe. Its actually a trek 9 km long . If you don't have a trekking experience not a problem not so difficult but tiring It will take you 6-9 hours depending on your speed Trek is amazing with scenic landscapes Start early morning , that will be best Take munchies , fruits , water with you . Everything is available at kheerganga but bit costlier You can take tents and hotels on the top Try booking before as i have faced situations when no hotel was free Try to stay there for a day and then come back next day
