3-day Gaun Beed Waterfall Trek

Spend three days in the pitcuresuqe hills of the Thachi Valley and combine a trek to the Gaun Beed Waterfall with short treks to explore a range of local destinations in Thachi. On the trek to Gaun Beed, you'll make your way through dense wilderness to stumble upon a hidden waterfall. From atop the high mountain cliff, the waterfall appears to be flowing down from the clouds. You'll also hike to the Gaun Beed plateau, trek to Hadima peak, visit the Bithu Narayan temple, dip your feet into the Ashu Alli water stream and spend some time at the Ropa pond. An outdoors adventure over rustic trails, you'll stop at vantage points along the way and spend the night in tents surrounded by apple orchards.

NOTE: A minimum of 5 travellers are required to book the Gaun Beed Waterfall trek.

Destination

Thachi Valley, an off-beat destination in the heart of Himachal Pradesh, is perched between the mountains that overlook the Great Himalayan National Park. A nature lover's paradise, the valley is criss-crossed with river streams and waterfalls that inspire lush grasslands and terraced farms. The valley is sprawling green with forests in the summer and layered white with snow in the winter.

Gaun Beed, the mainstay of this trek, is a towering waterfall that is hidden deep in the folds of mountains. Near the waterfall is the namesake Gaun Beed plateau, a great vantage point to catch bright views of the valley.
