New Year Camping in Kasol (2n3d)

Bring in the New Year 2018 at this trippy campsite in Kasol. You'll spend the days exploring the pine forests of Parvati Valley to Chalal, enjoying the cool air and the sound of the river rushing by. You'll be trekking to Chalal village, passing the shops and cafes of Kasol and heading into the forest. When you get back to camp in the evenings, you'll gather around a crackling bonfire. As the hands of the clock approach midnight on New Year's Eve, you'll celebrate the arrival of the new year with a bonfire and music. Later, you'll eat a delicious dinner on the bank of the river, and retire to your tents for the night. It's a perfect way to bring in the New Year!

NOTE: The volume of the music will be turned down by 22:00 hrs, but will continue playing.
