Welcome to Back-Pack-Go!

The mountains have always been a great getaway for many travelers. But how often do you travel to the mountains, climb it, and sit in a natural hot water spring with a view of the glorious snow-capped Himalayas? How often do you live in a local village in the middle of the mountains, sipping on your tea while staring at the gigantic Himalayas through your window pane? We know your answer. This trip is gonna have it all. Don't think twice and pack those bags. We're going to the hills. 


LOCATION: Parvati Valley, Himachal Pradesh (Kalga, Pulga, Tosh Kasol, Chalal)

 

TRIP DURATION: 5 nights - 6 days

 

HIGHLIGHTS/TRIP OVERVIEW:

-Day hike to the forests of Kalga

-Visit to Tosh & Chalal

-Camping by the Parvati river in Katagla

 

ITINERARY:

 

Day 1: Our journey begins in the capital (We can guide you with travel assistance to Delhi & back). Assemble at the Kashmere Gate bus stop at 5:00 pm. We board our bus to Bhuntar. Goodbye traffic, goodbye families, and probably (hopefully), goodbye cellphone reception for a week.

 

Day 2: We will reach Bhuntar early next morning from where we shall commute to the picturesque Kalga, a hilltop village nestled in the arms of a range of snow-capped mountains. Settle into our homestay. We'll take the rest of the day to explore the beautiful woodside hamlet.

 

Day 3: We are going to explore Tosh, a beautiful rustic village with a vantage point of the valley. We spend the day eating in the cafes here and taking a long walk to a waterfall. We return to our homestay in Kalga for dinner.

 

Day 4: After breakfast, we say buh-bye to Kalga and head to the bustle of Kasol by afternoon. Check into our swiss army tents on the banks of the Parvati river. After a quick lunch, we make our way to Kasol. In Kasol everything can be explored on foot. Chalal; a small village across the river and Manikaran; yet another hot spring (say whaaat!) in a gurudwara are the nearby attractions. Kasol is also a great place for getting a tattoo and yoga classes. The Parvati river runs right across Kasol. If you have the patience, we can go down to the river and skip some stones. Well find a nice cafe and have dinner together.

 

Day 5: This is our last day in Himachal. You will have the day at leisure. Go shopping for those jholas, harem pants, and jewelry that youve always wanted to buy from Himachal. We board our bus for Bhuntar in the evening. Take an overnight bus back to New Delhi. Make the most of this night since we might not be seeing each other again. (aww damn!)

 

Day 6: Reach Delhi early in the morning by 11 am. Say buh-bye to your new friends and return to everyday life in the city.
