About the Tosh Valley Trek:

This Tosh Valley trek takes you to a beautiful side valley to the primary Parvati Valley. Leading you to the small yet utterly scenic village of Tosh, this trek starts from the beautiful city of Kasol, gets you a stay amidst the beauty of Tosh, and then ends in Kasol. You start trekking from Kasol by the side of the river Parvati and it will take you about trekking for almost 9 km to reach Tosh. 

An amazing point to note here is that the valley of Tosh is actually home to a tributary of the river Parvati, which also goes by the name River Tosh. This means that as soon as you arrive at a point where a smaller river stream is feeding its waters into the grand Parvati Valley, you have arrived at the beginning point of Tosh Valley.

In all manners, this where the real Tosh Valley Trek starts. Walking by the rivulet, you arrive in the quaint village, famous for being untouched and pristine, with so many wild views of the Himalayan peaks covered in snow. After spending some time in admiring the beauty surrounding this place and clicking memorable pictures, the stay here steals the show as you spend an amazing night under the starry sky. 

Don’t forget to visit the few yet amazing cafes of the village, which you will mostly find less crowded. When you wake up to a beautiful sunrise the next morning, the view will make you want to stay here forever. And retracing your steps back to Kasol will make you even more nostalgic as you pass by all the beautiful scenes all over again.

About the Destination:

Indulge your visual senses as you take on the Tosh valley trek, a trail that will take you across the periphery of the mighty Himalayas. A village at the end of the Parvati Valley in Himachal Pradesh, Tosh is situated at a height of 7,874ft and leads to the beautiful Pin Parvati Pass. The Tosh River here is an offshoot of the Parvati River, which suckles into the main river at Pulga.

With this activity, get to experience the valley which is constricted at the beginning but unwraps later into attractive pastures as it ascends. Lap up the striking spectacle at the pass with the Tosh Glacier on one side and several well-known peaks like Papasura (6,451m) and White Sail (6,466m) on the other side; the stunning Malana Glacier can also be viewed from the top of the pass.

Himalayan trekking in Tosh Valley will take you through gorgeous meadows and streams leaving you breathless. Begin from Barsheni and hike up to make pit stops at Buddhaban and the Tosh Village. What sets this trekking tour apart from any other Himachal trekking tours, is that you can choose to pursue the tracks that lead to the challenging Animal Pass or choose the steady easy climb to the Tosh Glacier. Both views offer exquisite vistas of the picturesque mountains, valleys, and landscapes filled with snow.

    This trek just feel like heaven has descended down on earth and the sights are just unbelievable. On day one me and my friend explored the Kasol and has some local food. Next day we started for tosh village in jeep which a bumpy ride. After an hour of drive our trekking expedition started. There was beauty everywhere river, forest, birds and snow covered mountain. 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.

    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.

    Monsoon might not be the perfect time for a trek but it can be a good time for the mountain lovers. We all had a wonderful time here and it was a challenging one too. The mountains and the guide did the job well . It becomes more than just a memory after the trek is done.
