Nights are even more heavenly when you can actually spot Milky-way galaxy along with constellations from every corner of this fairyland. Make the best out of it while staying at a home-stay, eating the local food and soaking your soul in a bonfire on a chilly night.

No pain No gain stands right for Grahan

The way to Grahan is a three to four-hour trek - depending on your speed, persistence and the number of breaks you take - from Kasol, the nearest village accessible to the world outside. Walking on foot is the only way to get to the place. This piece of land is beautiful, indeed - but the trek to the place is a tale in its own surreal taste. Its beautiful temple, clear sky and sweet corn soup made locally is bliss to soul and eyes.

Life in this godly village is still far from technology and developments of the real world; you will find healthy cows grazing on meadows, natural stream of water to drink, sun to get the required warmth and wooden houses to retire for the day.
