  • Trip introduction

    Grahan is the less commercial cousin of Kasol, and is a refreshing break from the many tourists who come seeking peace. This magical village lies deep in the heart of the Parvati Valley, and offers you a chance to see how a true Himachali village lives and works. As you leave Kasol behind, you'll begin to feel the solitude. Pine forests line your trail and the Parvati river keeps you company while you walk. The village is known for its honey, gathered from the wild and will be sweeter and more fragrant than any honey you've ever tasted in the cities.

    Destination

    Grahan is a small village in Naggar in the Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh State. It is about 10 kms away from Kasol, and is one of the stops on the route to the Sar Pass trek and the Pin Parvati trek. The village itself is quaint and old, with traditional wooden houses and narrow paths. As you walk through the greenery around the villag, the Parvati river flows close by, lending its music to your trek. This is an ideal trek for beginners, and is not difficult, except for one or two steep patches.
