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.

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.
