Beautiful places are often hidden away in the most easily accessible places. To those of us with less money than enthusiasm, Himachal is like a gift from God. To escape the stresses of mundane life, Parvati Valley in Himachal is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. Starting at the confluence of River Parvati and River Beas, the valley is famous for its pretty as a picture coniferous forests and crystal-clear mountain streams. Nestled in these sylvan hills is the charming village of Kasol. Resplendent in natural beauty, Kasol is fast emerging as a hub for backpackers, trekkers, and nature lovers.
Manikaran (The famous hot springs). Kheerganga Trek (Trek to the most beautiful spot in the Parvati valley). Tosh (A hippie hub in Parvati Valley). Malana ( A village full of mysteries). Manali (The ever-famous hill station of India).
