What if a backpacking trip could take you away from the hustle and bustle of city life and into the surreal Himalayan bliss? That’s what we would be doing in this Himachal Backpacking Trip to Bir-Manali-Kasol.
We will kick off our journey from New Delhi and head towards Bir, which is the “Paragliding Capital of India”, also a noted center for ecotourism, spiritual studies, and meditation.
Spend your day paragliding and visiting the local attractions such as Bir waterfall and spend some time in the evening cafe hopping and trying the local delicacies.
Next up, we will make our way towards Manali, which is one the most famous Himalayan towns in India. While here, we will explore the famous “Mall Road” of Manali and also head to “Old Manali” where the blissful cafes by the river Beas will leave you enchanted. The day would be somewhat for leisure so you are free to do whatever you want.
From Kullu Valley, we will go to Sissu (Lahaul Valley) via Atal tunnel, which is the longest tunnel above 10,000fts in the world. Watch the landscapes take a dramatic shift as you enter Lahaul valley.
While in Sissu, we’ll be taking a small hike towards Sissu waterfall and exploring the village and nearby areas.
Kasol, famously known as "Mini Israel of India" is a tiny hamlet settled along the Parvati river in Parvati Valley. Feel your inner calm grow amidst the Himalayas as we take a hike towards Chalal village and spend some time here.
After this, we will go towards Gurudwara Manikaran Sahib for another local spot to explore in Kasol.
If you want a break from the daily routine and monotony, here’s a chance to rejuvenate yourself by joining our Himachal Backpacking Trip to Bir-Manali-Kasol.
