Parvati valley is very close to my heart since this is the only place from where my travel journey began and i couldn't stop returning to mountains since then. In this blog i will be covering a detailed travel plan which you can refer to before planning for a trip to parvati valley and no doubt summers are the perfect time to be there. But if you want to experience snow then you can plan in January or February.
Parvati valley lies in the kullu district of himachal and to reach here you need to take Delhi-Kullu volvo bus and get down at bhuntar.
Day 1 - Delhi to Bhuntar
You will get a bus for Kullu manali from Delhi ISBT Kashmere gate. Bus fare will range from 600 to 1200 for ordinary and AC buses. HRTC buses are highly recommended because they are always on time unlike other private buses. Delhi to Bhuntar is a 12 hour journey so if you take your bus at 7-8 in the evening from Delhi then you will reach bhuntar by 7-8 next morning.
Day 2 - Bhuntar to Kasol/Chalal
From Bhuntar you can either take taxi for kasol or take local bus for manikaran and get down at kasol. Bhuntar to kasol is one hour journey, buses are quite frequent and bus fare is 50 INR.
Once you reach kasol roam around and chill in some cafe. Bhoj cafe and Evergreen cafe are must visit in kasol. Since kasol has become very commercialized these days and there isn't much to do here, so i would recommend you not to stay in kasol, rather leave for chalal by afternoon. Chalal is a small village which is far more peaceful and serene, located at a distance of 30 minutes walk from kasol. This is a beautiful trail, you will be walking along with parvati river.
You can also opt for one night stay at river side camps which lie on the way to chalal or you can go till the end of the village and stay there.
You will find many guest houses in chalal between the range of 300-500 INR.
