Now this is where one has to be decisive. Tosh lies at a distance of about 4-5 km from Barshaini. There's an option to hire a taxi for the same or hike all the way. Most enthusiasts prefer hiking as the view is as spellbinding as it gets. So did we. Tracks to the Kheerganga can also be spotted on the way.Over the last 1 km stretch, it started raining quite heavily, drenching us completely. However, freezing to such pure winds also felt like a privilege as against the dusty air of the city. We walked all the way to the end of Tosh to finally find a suitable accommodation in Lord Shiva Cafe. The rooms are dirt cheap and have the prettiest morning views. There's a little cafe overlooking the mighty snow capped mountains. In all, the place was apt for getting baked and enjoying trance music. Do make sure that you have vegetable maggi and chai here. We headed to the German Bakery for dinner only to be moderately impressed by the food and amazed by its glittery ambience.The day ended in a long session of star gazing, and talking about parallel universes, dark matter and the extra terrestrial.

Pink Floyd Cafe
10. End your hike to Tosh at Pink Floyd CafeFurther up the hills of Parvati Valley lies Tosh, a small settlement of villagers who are slowly getting accustomed to the travellers arriving here from Kasol. Pink Floyd Cafe is one of the many cafes that have gradually mushroomed in this corner of the valley. The music is usually played by travellers who reach here by the end of the day and relax and get some warmth inside the wooden panelled walls of this cafe. The honey lemon tea and lip-smacking finger food are the right reasons to hop to Tosh after Kasol.Other cafes in Tosh you can check out are Boom Shiva Cafe near Pink Floyd and Mountain Goat Cafe that lie at the far end of this village towards the unnamed waterfall.
Camp 6 - Bhandak Thatch
Beskeri to Bhandak Thatch Date: May 10 2014 Feet: 11000ft to 8000ft Kms: 12 kms Time taken: 9:00AM to 3:00PM Difficulty: Easy Experience: Zoheb decided to call it quits and head straight to Kasol and he tried a little to convince me to do the same. I was hell-bent on visiting Bhandak. I had read in some blogs that it is the best camp site. And what a dreamland it was. Even the route from Beskeri to Bhandak is a pleasure walk. Not difficult at all as you are descending but also because the white landscape slowly becomes fresh green and that transformation gives such joy. The joy of seeing cattle grazing, of people soaking in some sun of trees, of leaves after 2 days of complete snow.. Bhandak Thatch Camp: Soon, we were at Bhandak which is probably the most beautiful place on earth for me so far! You are surrounded by snow clad mountains but you are on grassland. It was also special because, 8 out of 9 girls had decided to go straight to Kasol. So, I had a private tent. And what a cute, cozy tent it was! The initial excitement started dying when I realised I have to sleep alone. But my favourite dog took it upon himself to be there for me. He just wouldn’t leave my side. Wherever I went he followed me and he slept inside the tent as well. Knowing he was there to protect me let me sleep in peace. Will remain grateful to him :) The 22 of us(who decided to go to Bhandak) walked around looking at the beauty of nature, when a fellow trekker played a folksy gujarati song and before we knew, all of us were grooving(atleast moving) to the music. As it started getting cold, a few of us got into the tent to play some cards but in a bit it was snowing.. The soft snow kinds.. So, we got out and played in the snow, throwing snow at each other and the dog, screaming in excitement and just living the moment to its fullest. The night ended with 2 full hours of awesome dumb charades with torch lights on the person acting.
