India’s snow-studded gem, Himachal Pradesh is in the Himalayan range. Several perennial rivers flow through the state. Also known as the “Dev Bhumi”, Himachal Pradesh is filled with beautiful valleys, jaw-dropping mountain views, scenic hiking trails, mystical rivers, and spiritual monasteries. In this journey with us, you will be visiting Kasol, Chalal, and Grahan. Filled with many beautiful trails and scenic views there is no reason you shouldn’t be embarking on this journey!

A small village in the district of Kullu, Kasol has gained fame in recent years for its hippie culture and Israeli population. There are many treks one can take from Kasol with a famous one being the Kheerganga trek. Kasol is known for its many cafes with a river view.  

A hidden gem in the state of Himachal Pradesh is the village of Grahan. Grahan is 5-6 hours away from Kasol. The locals of Grahan are farmers who reap crops like potatoes, apples, and charas. The entire route from Kasol to Grahan is filled with beautiful views. It is 7,700 feet above sea level with only 50 houses and around 350 people. The houses are over 200 years old. The wooden houses, lush greenery, view of snow-capped mountains and fresh mountain air, Grahan is a very simple but beautiful heartwarming village.

Grahan Village Trek - A Detailed Itinerary

Day 0: Delhi to Kasol

Assemble at your designated pick-up points and we shall kickstart this adventure! We will leave Delhi by 7 PM and reach Kasol the next morning with a stop for dinner. Kasol is 513 kms away from Delhi.

Day 1: Explore Kasol

We shall reach Kasol at around 10 AM. Recharge yourself by breathing in the mountain air, having a hot delicious local breakfast and we are sure the exhaustion due to the journey will die away leaving you with high spirits to explore around. 

We will begin the local sightseeing of Kasol and Chalal by afternoon. Kasol is known for its beautiful coniferous forests and crystal-clear mountain streams. We take a few short hikes to view some beautiful sceneries. Kasol is also known for its cafes with continental food and a market which is every shopaholic’s paradise. Located a short trek away is Chalal with its rustic charm. After exploring both, we head back to the campsite for dinner and a goodnight’s sleep.

Day 2: Kasol to Grahan

We start our trek to Grahan after breakfast. The trek is 12kms one way, but it is not a very tough trail. The trek starts from the bridge which separates Old Kasol from the New Kasol. With the sound of the bees and insects along with the rumbling of the river Parvati, we walk under the shade of huge pine trees. There are some wooden bridges that we have to cross on the way, and they add more charm to this quaint place. The second bridge is a sign that we have come halfway through! We cross the nallah over a bridge and the path leads uphill. After a steep climb of about 1 hour, the sight of houses will let us know that we have reached Grahan village.

Our base camp also has a café with spectacular views of the snow-capped peaks. After a long day of walking, we can finally cozy up around the bonfire and relax. We have dinner and sleep the night away.

Day 3: Grahan to Kasol and back to Delhi

We wake up early to witness the magnificent sunrise. If time and weather constraints play in our favor, we shall hike to a few waterfalls. After breakfast, we visit two prestigious temples and learn about the local culture. We start our downhill trek back to Kasol which takes about 3-4 hours. 

Once we reach Kasol, a vehicle will be waiting to take you back to Delhi. We will start our journey back with a stop for dinner. 
We reach Delhi by 7 AM and say goodbye with lots of memories and new friends made!
