Day 01 : Welcome to the Parvati Valley

 

On reaching Kasol, take a breath of fresh air amidst views of picturesque hills and head to the campsite. Relax in the green space by the Parvati River and enjoy a filling breakfast before you start your Chalal Trek from Kasol. En route to Chalal, explore the “Little Amsterdam”, the lanes of Kasol lined with vibrant souvenir shops and Israeli cafes. A two-hour walk will take you to the small, enticing village of Chalal which is a popular hub for Trance and crazy parties held deep in the forest. Cradled in the conifer dense forest, the village gives you much scenic beauty to admire, right beside the wildly flowing Parvati River. After spending a wonderful day in Chalal, get back to your campsite in the evening. Enjoy dancing around the bonfire, as you have a scrumptious dinner by the riverside.
