    Destination

You'll see tiny villages that still live a simple life, camp beside rivers and in green meadows, and spend 4 days in the midst of glorious nature. You'll have to negotiate some steep inclines and rocky ridges, but the views of the entire Tirthan Valley from Ookhal meadow make it entirely worthwhile.

    The Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP) is a World Heritage Site, and one of India's national parks. It covers over 700 sq kms and has a buffer eco zone of about 200 sq kms.
