  • Trip introduction

    This Tirthan Valley trek is a long trek of 9 days, with a rest day in between, and is suited for experienced trekkers only. You'll trek through pine forests along the banks of the Tirthan river and up to the source of the river. Here, you'll be able to dip your cupped hands in and taste crystal-clear, cold glacial water. As you go deeper into the untouched landscapes, you'll be able to see rare Himalayan animals like the blue sheep or black bear, stunning mountain views, and charming little villages.

    You'll be camping in fun tunnel tents with two 'rooms' and an enclosed porch area to store your luggage. Every day, you'll eat delicious meals, enjoy merry campfires and chilly evenings, and sleep in spacious tents with comfy air mattresses and soft sleeping bags.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure so a minimum of 4 travellers is required to book this trip.

    NOTE: It is advised you arrive in Gushaini a day before the trek so you don't miss the departure next morning. Accomodation in Gushaini for that extra day will be at your own expense.
