Itinerary

Altitude: 5,577 ft to 7709 ft
Distance: 8 km 
Time taken: 4-5 hours

You will start trekking from Kasol to Grahan, which goes through the woods and the Grahan nalah. The Kasol trek begins from the Kasol’s centre and continues to the left of the Grahan Allah. This Pathway is easy to follow, and villagers often use this trail.  

The gradient of this trek is gentle. Therefore, you can easily cover enough distance within hours. The Pathway traverses the nalah and persists before suddenly becoming stony and ascending uphill, away from the river’s bank. 

Soon, you will find a way to shrubs and grass. You can also discover some fields and see some brightly colored tarpaulins.

You will also find provisional stalls with vendors who sell refreshments such as rhododendron syrup, omelets, and tea. 

After a steep ascend of nearly 60 minutes, you will find the village of Grahan on top of the hill.

You can set up your camp here for the night. The guest house is also available for easy accommodation, and you can also find a camping ground when you cross the village. 

Altitude: 7,709 ft to 11,154 ft
Distance: 7 km 
Time taken: 5-6 hours

Today, you will follow a pathway that goes north and ascend gently. Villagers often follow this trail in the morning to reach Min Thach. After a few walks, the view expands, and a travel guide can direct you to Sar Top, Nagaru, and Min Thach on the hill to the right. 

Also, the trail becomes steeper and guides you into the forests. After a few walks, you will arrive at thick woods; the dense canopy allows entering very little sunlight. 

The slope also becomes steeper still, and the trail is puzzling. After walking for some hours, the woods also expand to a green patch of a hill called Min Thach. You will also enjoy the view of Chanderkhani to the northwest, across the horizon.

The hill line prolongs to the east side and rises to a snow-capped cliff on which the Nagaru campsite is situated.

There is a forest to the southeast of the hill, and some cleared ground to install a tent.

You may also find a seasonal vendor’s hut to get omelets, coffee, and tea. You will also find a tap nearby that provides potable water. You will set up your camp here tonight, and the hill will safeguard you from fast winds. 
 

Altitude: 11,154 ft to 12,467 ft  
Distance: 8 km 
Time taken: 6-7 hours 

From Min Thach, the path doesn’t go straight to the mountain line; instead, it goes up to the south region and leads to the forests.
You may also discover snow here, based on the climate condition. So, you should also begin early, for the climate is usually flattering before the afternoon, plus the snow becomes smoother later into the day. 

After a few walks, you will reach another ridge line steeply eastward to the cliff, where Nagaru is situated.  

After climbing up this hill, you will reach to Nagaru and after walking for some time tree-line ends and opens up mildew. 

After walking a couple of meters, you will ultimately reach a welcoming ground area atop the ridge – your Nagaru campsite.  

You will find it amazing. Facing north, you can see wonderful mountains rising abruptly across the Parvati Valley from where you can see Manikaran town. 

In a few distance, you will also see a Chanderkhani plus the mountain of the Beas Valley. Below, on your left side, you will observe the Min Thach campsite plus Grahan village. 

From here, you will need to go south to reach Sar Pass. Here, you must set up your camp soon because the winds are extremely powerful, and the temperature dips faster after sunset.  

Altitude: 12,467 ft - 13,779 ft 
Distance: 14 km 
Time taken: 8-9 hours 

On day 4, you should wake up early before sunrise. Today, you will need to pursue a long trek. 

The ascend to Sar Pass Trek india follows the mountain line in a southward way plus is vertical in some areas. 

You can go slow and steady when you ascend through the snow. The snow pathway is easier to walk on, plus the delightful surroundings keep your spirits high. 

After ascending the ridge from Nagaru, you will see a higher hill you will climb next. Till now, you will cover one-third of the distance to this trek. 

To your right side, you will notice a cliff vertical to the valley below; the mountain is sharper, plus the ascend is steeper, so you should be vigilant.

After ascending this ridge, you will reach the mountain's peak and enjoy the view ahead.

The view expands eastward – and you will see the towering peaks of the Tosh Valley. On your south, you will explore the white carpet of snow lined by snow-covered peaks.

But you will reach the top in a couple of hours and have to cover enough distance before your next camp—the onward trail retreats from high ground to your southeast after a hill’s contours.

You must walk cautiously on the deep valleys on your left. After some time, the trails ascend to a hill running across, plus you can observe a flag attached to a ‘Trishul’ on top.

The slope is extremely vertical in the final stretch and covered in snow; you may discover a rope you can hold while climbing. You will enjoy an exhilarating view after reaching the top. After descending some hundred feet, you will discover a striking valley ahead.

After a few walks, you will find another descent in the valley, and according to the snow situation, you can prefer sliding for longer than one km till reaching ground level. 

You will cross the snow-capped trees while sliding through a vale that has now slandered and opens up a beautiful meadow on the left. After traversing some streams, you will reach Biskeri Thach, your campsite. 

Here, you will explore a magnificent view of the pine woods, the lovely grasslands and the majestic mountains.

In the valley below, you can explore the villages of Nakthan, Bursheni, Pulga-Tulga, and Tosh. On top of a hill, you will discover the grassland of Bun-Buni. Close by, a waterfall comes down from the ridge, creating a background behind Biskeri. 
 

Trek Distance: 9 km (5-6 hours)
Drive Distance: 15 km ( 1 hour)

From Biskeri, a vertical trail goes down. After a few walks, you will traverse the river and trespass a land with fencing. There is no trail here. Therefore, you must traverse the plot to search the trail again, which goes into the deep woods. 

There are several trails in this area; therefore, a professional guide will tell you the right way. After climbing down the thick woods, you will find a crossing on a river, with campsite crossways. But, it’s quite challenging to reach the crossing.

After traversing the river on wooden planks, ascend the campsite with many vendor tents. You will find a way to the Pulga village on the left side of the campsite. 

Soon after, you arrive at one of the trek's most picturesque locations: grassland bordered by trees. 

The slope steepens once more as the path continues along a dry channel and into the woods. 

The path goes down after fenced land and reaches a loading yard belonging to the forest department. 

The path passes; you will see a water pipeline leading you to the Pulga village.

Twin hamlets Tulga and Pulga are divided by a river. From Tulga village, you will cross a bridge on the Parvati stream to reach Bursheni village.

Bursheni is the final village across the Parvati Valley that is well-connected by road. This road is also the trailhead for trekking to Tosh Valley, Pin Parvati Pass, Mantalai Lake, and Kheerganga. You can get taxis or buses to Bhuntar, Kasol and other places from here. So, here your trek ends, and you will leave this place with many beautiful memories to cherish forever.
