I love Himalayas, especially less explored areas. So we (me and my friend Sudhir) decided to explore Parvati Valley this time. It was month of July, the monsoon season, so everyone stopping us to visit hilly areas as there might be some landslides, but we were excited to see such views so we kept going.
Earlier, I have read about Malana and Kasol so I decided to explore these beautiful places by my self and who knows I will end up with Tosh and Kheerganga too?
Basic expense for This trip would involve:
Volvo bus tickets Delhi to Bhuntar(to & fro): INR 3,000
Bhuntar to Barshaini (to & fro): INR 200
Kasol to Malana (to & fro): INR 1500
Lodging at Kasol: INR 800 per day + Food: INR 500
Lodging at Tosh: INR 500 per day + Food: INR 500
Lodging at Kheerganga: INR 300 per day + Food: INR 500
Total: INR 7800
We have two person so the rooms, food and Malana taxi expenses was divided among us. In that case per person expense would be: INR 5500
Parvati Valley: A Mini Isreal in Himachal Pradesh! The valley is nestled comfortably among conifers and mighty deodars in Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh. The valley, no stranger to backpackers and tourists, has some of the most beautiful villages in the Himalayas. Kasol is one of them. It is situated on the banks of the Parvati River, on the way between Bhuntar to Manikaran. It is at distance of 5 kilometre from holy place Manikaran.
