Parvati Valley

Parvati Valley is situated in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. From the confluence of the Parvati with the Beas, the valley runs eastwards from the town of Bhuntar, in the Kullu valley.

It has recently transformed into a hub for backpackers, who are attracted to the scenic valley, untouched hills, low population and great climate. It is a base for many known treks in the area, to Sar Pass, Man Talai, Pin Parbati and Kheerganga.

On this trip, we start at Manali - the Himalayan hill town with a most spectacular location. The river Beas meandering through, surrounded by deodar and pine trees, fields, orchards, wildflower carpeted grassy meadows and stunning views of snow-capped peaks.

From Manali we drive to Kasol, take the road that passes through Manikaran and stop at Tosh. From here, we embark on the Kheerganga trail, to a village called Nakthan, a temple and a waterfall called Rudra Nag, after its resemblance to a water snake. Beyond Rudra-Nag, the trail ascends further through thick pine forests to Kheerganga, a meadow at 2960m where Shiva is said to have meditated for 3000 years. The hot springs at Kheerganga are extremely important for Hindu and Sikh pilgrims as well as many others who believe the waters have sacred healing properties.
