Himachal Pradesh is an explicitly thrilling state in India, much acclaimed for its soulful weather, curvy roads and photogenic hill tops. The state is a chimerical land, blessed with snow-capped mountains, cobbled streets, aesthetic valleys and waterfalls, daunting trekking routes, old stories and narratives, which further make the state the best version of itself!
Here’s an exciting chance to participate in this all-girls Himachal Backpacking Trip. With a kickstart to an amazing opportunity, we begin from Manali, which is a gorgeous town lying in the Beas River Valley and it was once an ancient trade route to Ladakh. Manali today, is the go-to place for all the teenagers, families and even couples for treks, trips and what not!
Much acclaimed for its cafes in Old Manali, the town is a must-visit indeed. Some of the most amazing cafes to check out are Cafe 1947, whose fish and chips are a must have. Other cafes include Drifter’s cafe, The Lazy Dog and Cafe Meraki. Furthermore, tourists reach out to the Mall Road for striking souvenirs; a stroll across the same in the evening is indeed dreamy!
Kasol, also called the “Mini Israel of India” is a dainty town housed along the Parvati river in the Parvati Valley. Kasol is the birthplace of numerous treks such as Kheerganga, Grahan, Chalal, Rasol and even longer treks such as Pin Parvati Pass, Sar Pass, etc. Not to mention the soulful cafes here that are sure to entice you! Other popular attractions include Malana village, Kalga, Pulga, Manikaran, and waterfalls like Rudranag.
Jibhi, a hidden treasure, literally, is known to us as travellers only recently. Thanks to some foreign travellers who started coming here again and again. The Jibhi valley became famous among travellers but still continues to be unknown to a lot of people.
Jibhi is famous for its peaceful landscapes and heartfelt beauty. Well, that’s not just it since there are various places to visit in Jibhi, like the whole Tirthan valley, Chaini Fort, Jalori pass, and an astonishing trek of Serolsar Lake.
There is so much to explore within the Himachal Backpacking Trip, each place telling a different story and a touch of home. Famous places to visit in Manali are Hidimba Devi Temple and Manali Sanctuary. Meanwhile, some of the famous places to visit in Tosh are the Temple Of Barshaini and the fairy forest.
The reasons you need to check out the Himachal Pradesh Backpacking trip in 2021 are just so many, only if you are willing to take that extra step from your end. Furthermore, our team here at Triplou is ready to help you with anything and everything. Reach out to us without an iota of hesitation!
The team needs to assemble at Majnu Ka Tila/RK Ashram Metro Station by 6 PM, and an overnight AC Volvo from Delhi will see us reach Manali the next day.
The departure will take place by 6:30 PM for our Himachal Backpacking Trip from Delhi, and we’ll be reaching Manali the next morning by 10 AM.
We’ll be reaching Manali in the morning and checking into our hotel.
Manali is a blissful Himalayan resort town and we will be visiting some of the famous places in and around Manali like Manu Temple, Hadimba Temple, Club House, Vashisht, Jogini Falls, etc.
To get started we’ll be hiking to Jogini Waterfall.
This is a nearly 3km trek from Vashisht temple. Vashisht temple is 2km from the main market area of Manali and you can reach the parking area of the temple in 15 minutes by vehicle. After visiting the Vashisht temple complex you can start the trek. The trek route passes through a narrow lane by the side of the temple and it goes through apple orchids, tall pine trees and small water streams. The hike is around 3 km and leads to a scenic waterfall.
Yogini Mata temple is at the base of the waterfall. From here if you can climb then can reach the top point of the waterfall. The stiff climb will take 20 minutes more to reach the top. If you want to avoid climbing up, then towards your right side through the narrow path you can reach the base of the waterfall. A small pool is formed by the falling water and here you can take a bath and spend some time. Or simply spend your time near the temple and watch the waterfall. In the temple, there is a provision for the devotees to take food on available stone plates.
After getting down from the waterfall, we stroll at Mall Road, which is the center point of Manali, and then spend the rest of the evenings doing Cafe hopping in Old Manali. Old Manali is another popular area of Manali and houses several cafes that serve delectable cuisines with an attractive ambiance.
Dinner and overnight stay in the Hotel.
One of the most exciting days of All Girls Himachal Backpacking trip is on the cards for us, as we travel to Solang Valley. Solang valley is also known as the ‘Snow Valley,’ which is famous for hosting various winters adventure sports like skiing, parachuting, paragliding, trekking, and mountaineering.
There are few activities like paragliding, ATV Ride, Zipline that girl gang may choose to indulge in while enjoying the beautiful weather of the valley.
After the activities, we will depart for Kasol post-lunch and reach by evening and check into our camps.
Kasol is a surreal Himalayan village, which is 42 km away from the Bhuntar Airport and 75 km from Manali and offers serenity for both the mind and the soul. It is on the way as you tread towards Manikaran, a holy place for Sikhs best known for its hot water springs.
There are abundant treks and mini hikes that take you to tremendously beautiful villages around Kasol. Not all of them are clustered with luxury stays and world cuisine restaurants, but you’ll be surprised with the warm hospitality of the villagers and locals in the Old and the New Kasol, separated by a small bridge.
A new day in Kasol will see us start for the Chalal hike, post breakfast. Kasol might get the spotlight amongst the villages of the Parvati Valley, but there is so much to enjoy and explore in Himachal Pradesh by trekking a little further from Kasol to the quaint little village of Chalal.
Chalal is situated at an altitude of over 5,300fts and a 30-minute trek away from the tourist hub of Kasol. Chalal has managed to retain its old-world mountain village rustic charm and is set in the beautiful Parvati Valley of the Himalayas.
The team will be trekking down from Chalal and heading off to Manikaran and visiting the Gurudwara. The final trek of the day would be towards Tosh Village.
Night Stay and Dinner at Homestay in Tosh.
Kasol calls the girl gang back and we’ll be driving towards it and then heading for Jibhi. Often referred to as a mesmerizing “hamlet” situated amidst the lush green forests and surrounded by variegated mountains, Jibhi is just the right place to relax and spend some peaceful moments for the girls.
An offbeat place in Himachal Pradesh, Jibhi is untouched by industrialization and surrounded by nature. The dense pine forests, tranquil freshwater lakes, and pristine temples make this place worth visiting. You will be enchanted after visiting this place and would not want to leave it. Check-in into Hotel and rest.
Dinner and overnight stay in Jibhi.
Today would be the last day of the All-Girls Himachal Backpacking Trip in the mountains. After breakfast, the girls would head towards Jalori pass and do a small trek to the serene Serolsar Lake.
