    Detailed Itinerary

    The participants will deboard the Bus at the Kasol Bus stand. From this pick-up point, the guests will be driven to our Base in Kasol. After breakfast, explore Kasol. Return back to base to chat with the team over a bonfire and dinner.

    Kasol - Grahan village 1700m - 2350m (7- 8 km. trek) (5-6 hrs.)

    8:00 AM Report at our basecamp in Kasol .

    8:15 AM – Briefing.

    9:00 AM – Start the trek to Sar Pass.

    Locals frequently use the trail leading up to the village. Initially, the trail meanders gently through lush green dense forest, streams, and waterfalls. We set up camp near ‘Grahan,’ an ancient village with charming traditional houses. This camp, surrounded by rhododendron trees, is a photographer’s, artist’s, and nature lover’s dream come true. Spend the night at this peaceful campground.

    Meals : All meals except breakfast.

    Grahan - Min Thach 2350m - 3400m (6 - 7 hrs) ( Approx 7- 8kms)

    The trek to Min Thach today will take us around 6 to 7 hours. The trail becomes steeper as we ascend deeper into the woods. We stop for lunch along the way at Ratapani, a beautiful spot nestled in the forest. The trail eventually emerges from the dense forest into a grassy clearing, revealing sweeping views of the snow-capped mountains and valleys below. As we approach the camp, we must negotiate a steep section that leads to Min Thach, which is perched atop a hillock surrounded by flat rocks. The campsite offers stunning sunrises and sunsets, as well as incredible stargazing opportunities, including views of the Milky Way.

    Meals : All meals provided.

    Min Thach - Nagaru 3400m - 3800m (5 - 6 hrs. ) (8-9kms)

    The trail to “Nagru” campsite is steeper than the previous route and takes approximately 6-7 hours. The trail ascends through pastoral forests to snow-covered meadows, making it a little difficult. Chilling winds hit your face as you gain altitude and get closer to the camp. It is the coldest campsite at 12,500 feet, with subzero temperatures. The campsite at Nagaru offers breathtaking views of the Himalayas across the Parvati Valley.

    Meals : All meals provided.

    Nagaru - Sar Pass - Bishkeri 3800m - 4182m - 3350m (7-9 hrs.) (12-13 km.)

    After a moderate climb up the Nagaru ridge, the trail becomes more manageable. However, those who climb higher to the pass will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the stunning meadows and towering peaks of the Parvati Valley. While walking in the snow may be more convenient, the gradient steepens just a few meters below the pass, which is the only steep section of the day. Take a break at the Sar pass to savor a packed lunch and capture the stunning scenery. From the pass, it’s possible to slide down and cover a few kilometers in a matter of minutes. The descent continues on gentler slopes through rhododendron trees until reaching Biskeri Thatch, a camping site that will rejuvenate both your body and mind with its lush green meadows, wildflowers, and variety of birds.

    Meals: All meals provided.

    Bishkeri - Barshaini - Manikaran 3350m - 2400m (4–6 hrs) (9-10km.)

    We’ll descend through dense deodar oak and pine forests. The trail will cross several small streams. Lower pastures have beautiful meadows with massive trees and herds of cattle. Try the Buttermilk sold by locals at the two tea shops along the way. We arrived in Pulga village after hiking through the forest. Then we’ll cross the Parvati River and hike up to Barshaini, from where we’ll drive an hour to Manikaran. Manikaran is well-known for its hot springs, which are ideal for a well-deserved hot bath after a long trek. The journey comes to an end here.
