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.
Temperature Range: The average temperature here ranges between 2°C and 7°C and dips below the freezing point in winters.

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.

The trekking to the Tosh Valley is just wow. Words cannot describe the beauty of this place. My wife and I decided to do something beautiful and fun with our first trip together, and we went of this trek-tour. It was fun, while we should say that we were exhausted with the loads of climbing, hiking, trekking, and stuff, this definitetly was a great experience. I so loved this and I wish that I would take more such treks in my life.

I was expecting it to be a camping, but it was a hotel stay. Nevertheless, the hotel was at the top of tosh village, so the view from that spot was just breathtaking! and the services were overall good. The trek guide was really good and friendly. Overall it was a good experience!

Started with an early morning Journey (Wow..!!all excited), Soon it became a very tiresome journey, after 12 long hours in the same bus we were (like those from the Russian Sleep Experiment). But we somehow managed to reach Bhuntar with broken Knee Caps & Dislocated Elbow joints. Tired all of us…. But excited too!! Reached Bhuntar at around 8 pm, and enquired about..

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.

It is not every day we get to witness snow capped gigantic mountains. It was nice to wake up in the camp and witness sheer beauty of the surroundings. Trek was well organised and our guide was very helpful. First days jeep ride was amazing from Kasol to tosh village. Only one suggestion food was of average quality except that everything was amazing.

Before the main part of the trek started, we got to enjoy a jeep ride through the beautiful roads and valleys of Himachal Pradesh. Driving a jeep through such exhilarating roads was just a 'wow' experience for entire team. The climb to the Tosh Valley and the Animal Pass was the best part. Even the impressive views of the Tosh Glacier and the river was also amazing.
