Numerous mountain streams, lush green meadows and an expansive coniferous forest, surrounded by towering mountains are the highlights of this trek. The trek is designed such a way that one can enjoy every bit of nature that you pass through and not needed to rush across any part.
If you want to embark on a soulful journey and get lost in the lap of nature without taking too much challenge of climbing the steep mountain gradients, then Parvati Valley trek is ideal for you !
Situated in the higher region of Himachal Pradesh, Parvati valley is a hidden treasure for the peace seeking mountain lovers. The trek starts from the confluence of Beas and Parvati river and keeps following Parvati, initially cutting through the apple orchards till we reach the only village of this trail Pulga on the way. Slowly we leave the last hint of civilization behind and climb through the dense coniferous forest. The streaks of morning sun falling on the foaming water flow or peeping through the dense foliage makes the morning hike a surreal experience!
Kheerganga is a picturesque setup of a natural hot spring amidst the tall peaks and pine forest. Unlike any other hot springs, Kheerganga being situated deep inside the mountain, very well retains its serenity. We spend a night here and move forward where the tall trees gives way to the flowery meadows. Tundabhuj is a lush green meadow which has tall peaks as its backdrop and tributaries to Parvati as its foreground, one of the most beautiful campsites in Himalaya. The tall waterfalls, the gushing waterflows, the green meadow and the lofty mountains – this trail is worth for every bit of effort.
During the trek, we stay in tent, either twin or triple sharing basis.
Himalayan weather is sometimes unpredictable. During this time of the year, the weather is expected to be sunny with occasional passing rain. Temperature will drop sharply in night. Minimum temperature expected around 5 to 8 degree centigrade.
Please note, the above information is not exact and does not account for sudden changes. Whatever the temperatures and conditions rest assured we will be prepared to handle it with ease as we use equipment of very high specifications.
The difficulty level of this trek is moderately easy. However, you need to be reasonably fit as you are expected to walk for 4 to 6 hrs a day over a inclined terrain for consecutively 5 days. It is recommended to have a daily exercise regimen to build stamina at least 1 month prior to the trek.
