Day 1

Kasol is situated among the lush green pine of Parvati valley in the state of Himachal Pradesh.I reached kasol around 2 pm and was stunned to see the beautiful scenic view there.
After a 1 km uphill trek I found a cafe named Highland Choj , it's the one of  the best cafe and hostel in the Kasol . Not only the scenic view but also the ambience of the cafe is amazing . The village was covered with weed plants as the local people grow weed and you can find the best hash in the world . I interacted with a group of Israelis and they offered me hash to smoke and happy I did !!
  In the evening  I  explored the beautiful Choj village, people here enjoy each and every moment of their life and live carefree .
  At night , the cold winds and the sky covered with stars made me feel blessed to be able to visit such an incredible place.

Day 2

After a 20 km bike ride from Kasol via Manikaran Sahib .I reached the Tosh Village The route was too thrilling and a little rain pour made the journey more memorable. Tosh village is like a gem of Himachal Pradesh , with tourist from all over India as well as other countries this offbeat destination is gaining pace .
There are more than 100 cafes and hostel and each of them provide alluring view .
With an hike of 3km I reached the Pink Floyd at an height of 7874 ft . This psychedelic village provides an awesome scenic view and I was so amazed when the clouds started covering the village .
On the same day I went to explore village
and came across many people and found out the their main source of income is the revenue generated by tourism in tosh .
I found out the people here are low at pace and live a simple life . Manikaran Sahib I reached Tosh village .

Day 3

I started the audacious 12km long  kheerganaga trek at 11am sharp and it took me around 4 hours to complete the hike. The trek level is moderate and while hiking I decided to relax in the famous kheerganaga hot spring , all my fatigueness vanished as soon as I took a bath there. The thrilling trek also has a waterfall and the ice cold water of the same made my teeth  chatter . While hiking I came across several other trekkers from different walks of life and this increased my enthusiasm . In the evening I explored the nearby places in kheerganaga and the beautiful weather and scenic view tempted me to stay there for some more time . A group of trekkers invited me to stay in their camps and this was the most unforgettable part of my trip as I had decided to stay with them. My overnight stay was in the camp along with bonfire and music . All the little things in the journey left a lifetime memory and I would suggest that one should definitely come to Himachal Pradesh and stay at the heaven on Earth .
