When people talk about trekking in Tirthan Valley, it's either to Jalori pass or small hikes around Jibhi. But there is so much more to explore in Tirthan Valley than these two places. Tirath trek, which lets you explore maximum of this place, is something you can do when you visit Tirthan valley the next time. It follows Tirthan river from Gushaini to its origin, Tirath glacier. This trek gives you everything, from verdant meadows to snow-clad ranges and Himalayan architecture to a rich wildlife.
How to reach Gushaini
Gushaini is well-connected with other cities of Himachal but it is not directly connected to Delhi. You have to reach Aut tunnel from Delhi. Once there you will have to board the bus to Banjaar. From there you can get buses to Gushaini. After reaching the place you will have plenty of options to stay before you start your trek.
This is a remote trek which takes you through some isolated areas of Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP), Himachal Pradesh. It is considered to be a moderate trek with some difficult trails. You will however need a guide to do it as one can easily get lost in the forest and the chances of witnessing a wild animal is pretty high.
This trek is not to be done solo. Few organisers like Himalayan Eco Tourism, Himalayan Loop and 365Hops do this trek around ₹6,000, Banjaar to Banjaar, inclusive of all the equipment, guide, camping and meals.

When to do it
The best time to hit this trek is during summer season and autumn. Monsoon witnesses a lot of landslides in the whole national park area and for rest of the year this trail is covered under a thick blanket of snow.
