Trip Cost:

Per Person- Rs. 13,850

Group Discount (4 and above)- Rs. 12,500 per person (Say whaaa?)

Itinerary:

Day 1

Day 1- We'll meet at Kashmiri Gate, New Delhi at around 7:00 P.M. and catch the 9:00 P.M. bus heading to Himachal Pradesh. (Yay, almost there!)

Day 2

Day 2- We'll reach Bhuntar by 8:00 A.M. and catch a local bus to Kasol. We should reach Kasol by noon. We'll then check into our quaint little home-stay, and after chilling for a while and hogging on breakfast, head out and explore the town. Kasol is the perfect place to take yoga lessons, get a tattoo or just give in to your shopaholic tendencies. Post that, we'll head back to the home-stay for dinner (and awkward ice-breaking sessions). Kasol will be our base camp for our treks to Kheerganga and Malana.

Day 3

Day 3- After a heavy breakfast (because it's on us!), we'll start our trek to Malana. Malana, also known as the 'Little Greece of India' is nestled in the mountains of the Parvati Valley. The trek to this serene spot is moderately difficult. We'll head straight to the guesthouse, check in and unwind. You'll have the day to explore the village, meet some interesting people and discover local delicacies. Later that evening, we can start a bonfire and spend the night under the stars (an underrated luxury for us city folk).

Day 4

Day 4- You can wake up on your own time and explore the trails around the village before we head back down to pickup point by 5:00 PM to go on back to Kasol. On the way, we'll visit the Manikaran Gurudwara. Once back in Kasol, we'll grab dinner and retire early because we have a hectic day ahead of us.

Day 5

Day 5- Hot-spring Time! After a solid breakfast, we'll take taxis to the starting point of our trek to Kheerganga. Post a slightly taxing hike through wallpaper-like wilderness with breathtaking views and several chai stops, we'll reach Kheerganga! What could possibly be worth a 6 hour trek? Nature! Kheerganga is home to natural hot water springs that are sure to make you forget all about those tired muscles. Not to mention the gorgeous scenery surrounding the home-stay we'll be camping at.

Day 6

Day 6- After one last dip in the hot-springs, we'll head on back to Kasol for our last night in Paradise! (This is where y'all say 'awwww'). We can hike up to Tosh or around Chalal later that day if the group is up for it.

Day 7

Day 7- Wake up at your own leisure, have breakfast and spend the day chilling. You'll can head to the market for any last minute shopping for souvenirs and trinkets for all those people who said, "Bring us back something nice". Later that evening, we'll leave for Bhuntar by taxi. We'll catch a bus heading for Delhi and be on our way.

Day 8

Day 8- We should reach Delhi by 7:00 A.M. Y'all will then go back to your boring lives that will be filled with Himachal Withdrawal Symptoms, unless y'all decide to join us on our next trip! (Subtle emotional blackmail).
