About the trek:
The Kasol-Grahan-Tosh circuit, a perfect getaway for beginners looking for an adventurous trek in the lower Himalayas. The trek is widely popular for its dense pine forests, natural hot water springs, the Grahan waterfall, lush flora, and fauna, etc. Grahan gives the travelers an opportunity for a peaceful retreat without any of the humdrum of typical civilization. One of the most unique things about Grahan is how secluded it is. Not a lot of people know about this small village and there is also not a lot of information to go around. Coming to this place will ensure that you have some brilliant memories that cannot be tarnished by time.
Day 1: Kasol – Manikaran/Challal
Upon reaching Kasol, check-in at The Hosteller Kasol at 11 AM. Located 5 minutes away from the city center, The Hosteller Kasol offers a serene mountain view, comfortable rooms, and various local experiences. After settling down, one can walk down to Kasol village for grabbing delicious Israeli or local food. Our trip coordinator would then meet you at the city center for a fun day out which would include a river walk, a trip to the charming village of Challal and the Manikaran gurudwara tour. Once back, one can enjoy with other travelers around the bonfire or can make themselves comfortable in the cozy rooms. A delicious vegetarian dinner is served in The Hosteller cafe around 9 PM. One can also register for Jungle walk at the reception (timing: 10 PM – 12 midnight).
Day 2: Kasol – Grahan
Post breakfast around 9 AM, put on the hiking shoes as we leave for Grahan trek (around 10 KM from Kasol). Our highly experienced local trek guide awaits at the reception to start the trek.

One cannot miss the mesmerizing sights while traversing through dense pine forests, hidden waterfalls and lush green paddy fields, all while being privy to surreal views of the lower Himalayas. Post reaching Grahan and pitching the tents, one can visit the waterfall, local temple or the village. A delicious vegetarian dinner (around the bonfire) sums up the day for a peaceful night under the twinkling sky.

If you are anywhere near McleodGanj, then the Triund trek is a must do on the list. Skipping this would be like eating popcorn without butter. The trek starts from the vibrant Tibetian town of McleodGanj, makes its way through beautiful oak and rhododendron forests and finally opens up to the large open expanse of the Triund Hilltop. If the views of the entire Kangra valley are not enough to satiate you, just pitch a tent and wait till the sun drops. It will take your jaw with it. Believe us!
