    DETAILED ITINERARY

    Day 1: Delhi – Kasol | Begin the Kasol Trip

    Distance covered – 488 km

    Good Evening Folks!

    How about a night out on the bus sounds? Crazy and exciting, right? Well, if it doesn’t then Hikerwolf promises to make that happen. Buckle up guys, a road trip from Delhi to Kasol awaits you this night.

    It will be a mix of being ourselves as we hear some music and let the cold wind blow into our faces whilst we gawk at the beautiful scenery on the way and have fun with everyone, play some road games, and scream all our hearts out.

    But with all the time in our hands, you’d better watch out as we’d be pulling each other’s leg and executing some really evil pranks and you will be out of luck if you fall asleep on our very first road-night-out.

    The parade trip is unlike any other experience you’ve ever had, and adding along with our very own HikerWolf Tadka to it makes it even more special.

    Day 2: Kasol – Manikaran | Hot springs of Manikaran, Kasol Tour

    Distance covered – 39 km

    We’d be waking up to the crisp mountain air of Kasol. For those who thought magic was never real, here are the bewitching valleys that’d make you believe otherwise.

    We freshen up at the stay arranged in Choj and to Tour’s first stop for the day which is the hippie paradise – Kasol.

    Barely a few kilometres from Kasol are the hot springs of Manikaran that overflows with stories and surrealness. Take a darshan at Manikaran Sahib Gurudwara if you’d like. If at all you are tired from the earlier trip, the hot springs will relinquish all of it. Getting clouded with steam, and chilling in the natural jacuzzi like the setup in the water that has eternally remained above boiling point.

    After enjoying such a refreshing gift of nature, we head back to Kasol. Guys…. It’s time to Chillax in the famous Israeli cafés of Kasol. Infamously known as the Hummus trail, the cafe’s around here are a complete feast to the taste buds! The cultural fusion of taste and Israeli people will definitely make your heart light from all the stress and worries of routine from which you have taken a vacation.

    The cafe also offers nightlife, famous for being one of its kind. Jamming to some amazing indie music with a psychedelic touch, it strikes the right chord when it comes to taking you by surprise. Driving down while singing all those memories, we retire for the night at a stay in Kasol village.

     

    Day 3: Kasol – Barshaini – Tosh | Drive through Barshaini, Trek in Tosh

    Distance covered- 25 km
     
    The outskirts of Kasol resonates with a joyful vibe with river bridges, wooden houses, and vivid orchards. For day 2, we would be driving through this beautiful village to our base camp near Barshaini and complete a mini trek to Tosh.
     
    Enjoying and singing on 80’s classics accompanied by rustling wind in the woods with hardly anyone to hear us. Take your time to rejuvenate your soul and feel the freedom without worry to find the right way.
     
    We will also explore the beauty and culture of trio villages on the hills of Himachal Pradesh, Kalgha-Pulga-Tulga, on our foot which is as good as light trekking. Being with a bunch of travel enthusiasts, the energy of the journey will only increase as we try speaking the local language and share some laughter and feel pride,
     
    There’s one advantage that always tags along through these routes – Authentic Himachali cuisine. Having a full course thali dinner from here is enough to keep you coming back for more. With a happily bloated stomach, we wrap up Day 2 and kick up our feet at Kalgha.
     

    Day 4: Kalgha – Kheerganga | Kheerganga Trek

    Distance covered- 6.5 km
     
    Finally, the D-Day is here! We’re trekking up to the snow-dusted Kheerganga from the pristine greens of Kalgha. The Kheerganga trek is going to give you scares, the hanging bridges, rivers flowing right below calming your nerves, and a hill peak that is waiting to be conquered by our pack of Wolves!
     
    Passing every kilometre will gravitate you to a pitstop. Be it for the 2-minute Maggi made in 5 minutes, or the warmest cup of chai. Everything becomes a lot more special when it’s shared with a new bunch of crazy friends. The Kheerganga trek speaks for itself, the astounding views, the breezy chilly air and the pictorial view will set your spirits high and provide a refreshing mood.
     
    You’d also lose count on the spam worthy pictures you’d click with the icy Himalayas in the backdrop and the hanging bridge. The peaks are home to a natural hot spring too, where you could take a leap or just dip your feet and let your tiredness flow into hot water. Fun fact, these hills are globally infamous for their cultivation of charas and scenic views that’d get wanderlust’s high even without it.
     

    Once we reach our destination, we let out our loudest cry of victory! Taking our Dhoom-Dham along. Before climbing down we’ll proudly hold up our HikerWolf flag and click many groupies. After all the huff and puff of the trek, we all do deserve to boast a little. Here’s a few things that may not get captured on our camera though,

    The fresh breeze on our faces and smiles so wide with all the jokes we’d never get tired of cracking. These will remain memories that’d be photographed in our minds forever.

    Depending upon the weather conditions and the terrain ahead we descend slowly to our campsite; settle among the mountains becoming a part of them. Descending down the Kheerganga trek is much more fun when we have cosy views and juvial buddies with us. The campsite is suited to give you a feel of a chilly but cosy night, let’s sing all the songs we can think of while we sit drink hot chocolate as night air brushes past.

    Note: The difficulty level of Kheerganga Trek: Easy-Moderate

    Day 5: Kheerganga – Kasol – Kullu – Dobhi | River Rafting and Sightseeing in Kullu

    Distance covered – 77 km
     

    Mornings in the mountains are even more magical, and we’d make sure you witness it in all its glory. You’d be waking up to our custom alarm of some totally out of tune singing, but we guarantee you that you’d thank us later for the breathtaking view.

    Just two and a half-hour drive from the base camp is Kullu, where we’d make a stop for river rafting. Boost your adrenaline for the crazy white water river rafting and embrace the chilly water. Worry not, we won’t leave you shivering; savour some delicious tea and let the game going. We hit the local stores of Kullu, one of the prime shopper stops. Shop your heart out what the locals sell best, explore Buddha monuments and praying wheel; enrich yourself with their culture.  

    We leave for Dobhi where our adventure outside Parvati valley calls out to us. At Dobhi, the night remains young with round-the-clock partying. We will be showing off our best dance moves, as we play our favourite playlist for the night, making the craziest of videos that’d give us a walk down memory lane.

    Thinking back on this Kheerganga & Kasol trip, this night would remain afresh simply because of the tons and tons of laughs we’d share.

    Day 6: Kullu – Delhi | River Rafting, Paragliding, Sightseeing Kullu

    Distance covered- 518 km

    An adventure-packed day is what awaits you on the final day! Today we’re going completely off-road, quite literally. Trying our hand at aero and water sports, we explore the lesser explored inland regions of Himachal Pradesh.

    Paragliding through the skies of Kullu and watching the entire hamlet from a bird’s eye viewpoint. Adventures at Kullu will sweep you off your feet and this is something we can vouch for. Be it 5 minutes or 15 minutes, you’d be left under the dilemma of not wanting to go back to the mundane routines.

    Worry not, because the end is going to be even better with the final pinch of seasoning to the trip. We’d be halting at Kullu for a mini river rafter adventure.

    Going with the rush of the white waters offers an unfiltered version of the glacial lands. With the occasional splashing of icy cold water and swerving through the rocks, it’s going to be the time of our lives!

    After that party of screams and thrills, we bid adieu to Parvati Valley. Enjoying the bliss, we made in the past few days and in the hopes of meeting once again for yet another memorable journey, we drive back to Delhi.

    Day 7: Kasol Trip Ends

    We reach Delhi around 2 pm at Hazrat Nizamuddin. Until next time, we wave our goodbyes and make sure to remain in touch with the new friends who by now are no less than family.

    All our treks are led by certified professional trekking leaders, climbers. In addition to them, there will be a local guide, a cook, an assistant, porters, and other staff.

    Safety is of prime importance and we understand them very well. The major of our staff is a girl for that very reason so be assured you are in safe and reliable hands.

    4. What type of ground transportation will be used during the trip?
    We rent taxis such as Innova, Tempo Traveler, Bolero, Tata Sumo, etc. from our suppliers.

    5. I can’t carry my backpack/bag while trekking, can I offload it?
    We always recommend carrying the backpack while trekking to help maintain body posture. If you can’t, we can provide you with a mule/porter to carry your backpack. I want this service you must inform us at least 1 week before the trek. The offloading fee would be around INR 300 per person per day.

    6. What shoes should I buy?
    Shoes are the lifeline during the trek. It is highly recommended to buy trekking shoes for a well well-known brand. You can consider companies like Quechua, Columbia, etc. A waterproof shoe with ankle support will work well.

    During the trek, separate toilet tents will be installed on each campsite.

    8. What will be the type of accommodation?

    10. How many trekkers will be in a tent?
    It totally depends on the dynamics of the group. If there is a couple, we can give them a separate tent. If there is an odd number of people, then the tents would be on triple sharing basis.

    After selecting the trip/excursion, you can book by clicking the Book now button or you can contact us and we will guide you through the booking which is quite easy.

    13. How can I get drinking water during the trek?
    Himalaya water is considered the purest and safest water to drink. But for safety reasons, we sometimes boil water and use it for drinking and cooking.

    If you find clean water while hiking, always fill the water where it flows, not where the water is stable or at rest.

    14. Can we change the path?
    Yes, you can make suggestions. We will analyze this and, if we consider it feasible, we will apply it.

    18. Is Diamox advisable or not?
    Well, it totally depends on the person. There are usually no side effects of Diamox, but if you have previous medical conditions, it is best to consult your doctor.

    Our itinerary is designed in such a way that we get sufficient time acclimatized. If in case you have any problem while trekking, inform your trek leader about your condition as soon as possible.

    The Minimum age limit is 14 years

    20. What will we do if it rains?
    If it starts to rain slowly during the trek, we will continue walking as expected. Your poncho will keep you dry. If it rains a lot, we will try to find a refuge and wait for the rain to stop or subside. If it rains in the field, there would be no problems because all our living tents, our kitchen tents, and our bathroom tents are waterproof. You will stay dry inside.

    21. Why is the trekking pole needed?
    It differs from person to person. If you think this will help you maintain balance while trekking, bring your cane. Some people believe that walking sticks break the pace while walking. It depends on you

Can't thank Smit enough for delivering the best and making sure that everyone had the best moments of their life. Every place discovered was worth the time, energy and money I spent. Truly, the most memorable trip ever. It gave me everything I was seeking for. I am highly recommending Hikerwolf if you are looking at something more than just a tour.

        positive review  Undoubtedly the best one in Travel business! I've experienced treks, adventure sports & midnight cycling with HikerWolf; each one of them was unique and fun filled! The best part of traveling with them is they have small games in between the main event, which lightens up the mood amongst the group. The team - Jinal, Smit & Rameez are very easy going and will make sure you enjoy the travel you've booked with them to the fullest!
