"Trek to Malana Magic Valley was a beautiful experience.Though if you are taking a weekend trip,a trek from Kasol to the valley and back to Kasol camps is not humanely possible unless you are booking a car which will cover most of the distance and you need to trek only 3 km. You can stay overnight in the camps in the Malana valley and start next day fresh in the morning for your travel to Manikaran . If there is not much traffic while returning you can take your bus back to Delhi the same day from Bunthar"

Kasol is a small and a very beautiful place. Camping in villages is a lot of fun. It is something that I have never experienced until now. We had a really great time in there. The camp was just about perfect and we had loads of fun. Also, camping with random fellow campers was something that I have never done before and I am so glad to that I had some great set of fellow campers. The camping was inexpensive, and it was totally worth the time and money spent. We had a really great time with lot of fun activities. The climate over this area is pretty cold, but with well equipped winter wear, this camping can be totally enjoyed without much hassles. I am so recommending this.

The main trek started on the third day, but still the beginning two days were very exciting for us. The guides and instructors made us aware of the upcoming challenges on the way beforehand itself. They even prepared us to face and overcome those challenges. There were great views all around and we really had lots of fun and adventure during the entire trek.

Best part of the tour was staying in camps. The whole trip was well planned and I specially like to thanks our guide who made that we enjoy every bit of journey.

What a nice trek. This trek was awesome. Himalayan trekking in Tosh Valley took us to the most gorgeous meadows and streams that we ever came across in our lives. It actually left us breathless and spellbound. This trek begins from Barsheni, from this point one has to hike up to make pit stops at Buddhaban and the Tosh Village. The most striking and unique quality of this trek is that this trekking tour unlike any other Himachal trekking tours allows us to pursue the tracks that lead to the challenging Animal Pass or to choose the steady easy climb to the Tosh Glacier. While the former seems thrilling, the latter is beautiful.
