A visit to himachal

Tripoto

visited the peacefull village kalgha located in Himachal Pradesh.

For the few travellers that know of Kalga, it is one of many small villages scattered across the Paravati Valley, the gorge that runs eastwards from the confluence of the Parvati and Beas rivers. Getting to Kasol is the easy part – get on any of the comfortable HPTDC overnight volvo buses that leave from Delhi to Manali, and get off at Bhuntar. Next, hop on to one of the shared jeeps or local buses available there that connect Bhuntar to Kasol. Hire a taxi from here to Barshaini, or wait for a shared one if you have plenty of time. It is only much after Kasol (beyond Manikaran) that the roads get uneven and the drive becomes bumpy. Tough roads, however, are usually the measure of a good offbeat destination; the bumpier the road, the lesser the probability of tourist traffic at the end of it. From Barshaini, a forty-five minute hike up a somewhat steep slope lands you in Kalga.

Kalga Village located at an altitude of 2298m in Parvati Valley, is a lesser known village beyond the settlement of Barshaini near Kasol, and is surely a traveller’s delight with giving a feel of closeness to nature.

With the sky almost kissing the snow- covered peaks and plentiful of alpine beauty the place offers most alluring getaway from the usual hustle and bustle of a village. The old houses present here are abandoned. Most of the houses here have turned into cheap comfy home stays allowing the travellers to sink in the beauty of the place completely.

Most of the land covered with greenery all around because of the apple plantation which is the main source of income here along with animal husbandry. So with atmospheric solitude, the breathtaking views it can prove really the best place to chill and enjoy the simplest things here while getting lost in nature.
