You'll spend the week surrounded by dense woods of pine and oak with beautiful views of snow-capped mountain peaks in the Parvati Valley. As you begin climbing from the town of Kasol, you'll encounter challenging and steep inclines on the trail, leading you up to an elevation of over 13,500 feet. En route, you'll stay in alpine tents pitched at some of the most scenic mountain ridges and meadows in the Himalayas.
