Parvati Valley in Himachal is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. Amidst these hills lies the charming village of Tosh. Tosh, the last village in Parvati valley, is well-hidden amongst tall pine forests and is located alongside the Parvati river. Located at a height of 7874 feet, it provides surreal views of the wonderful Pin Parvati Pass.
Alongside the village is the Tosh River, which begins at the Tosh Glacier. The village is reached by taking a bus from Bhuntar to Kasol, and a one and 1/4 hour car ride and then a one hour hike. The spiritual site of KheerGanga temporary village is where Shiva is said to have meditated for 3000 years. The hot springs at KheerGanga are extremely important for Hindu and Sikh pilgrims as well as many others who believe the waters have sacred healing properties. With pleasant climate all around the year and low population density, this wonderful place is all set to give you an unforgettable experience. The snow clad Himalayas to verdant landscape and clear blue sky adds a touch of mystery to the place. If you are an adventure buff and love to go hiking , then this is the trek you surely cannot miss.
These mountains covered by herbs & shrubs provide a sense of calmness and along with the roar of the flawless river create a feel of an untouched jungle. The abundance of waterfalls, the small villages and smiling people, the uncluttered lifestyle and living “one with the nature” feel that one gets while trekking through the valley is incomparable.
