About this trek:
The Unseen Trail comprises of one day in Kasol and Grahan each. This is an extremely good choice for first-time trekkers wanting to experience hiking in the lower Himalayas. The trek is widely popular for its dense pine forests, natural hot water springs, 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. A short hike ahead of the village leads to the Pir Panjal mountain range, which is a great thing to do if you have spare time on your hands.
Upon reaching Kasol, after a tiring journey, we will check-in at The Hosteller Kasol at 11 AM. Located 5 minutes away from the city centre, The Hosteller Kasol offers a serene mountain view, comfortable rooms, and various local experiences. After settling down, you can walk down to Kasol village to grab delicious local food or check out the nearby attractions. Our trip coordinator will then meet you at the city centre for a 3-hour Manikaran Gurudwara tour. Once back, you can bond with other travellers around the bonfire or can make yourselves comfortable in the cosy rooms. A delicious vegetarian dinner will be served at The Hosteller cafe around 9 PM. You can also register for a jungle walk at the reception (timing: 10 PM – 12 midnight).
Day 2: Kasol – Grahan
Post breakfast around 9 AM, we will be packing up and heading towards the Grahan trek (around 10 KM from Kasol). Our highly experienced local trek guide will guide you throughout the hike.
