About Trip

Picture this – Walking in the dense jungles, sitting by pristine lakes, trekking in the Great Himalayan National park, swimming and fishing, cycling along the Tirthan river, braving the rapids while rafting in the Beas river, living in homestays/hostels and interacting with the local tribes & bonfires nights. Its time to get your friends along or make them jealous with your perfect insta-worthy shots against the stunning backdrop of rugged mountains, cascading waterfalls and fascinating meadows!

Trip Highlights


Day 1 - Arrival in Delhi

Day 2 - Jibhi

In the morning we arrive at Jibhi – a beautiful hamlet surrounded by forests and mountains. After you freshen up at our happening hostel we will head out to chase waterfalls, take a dip in Mini – Thailand and binge on some hot maggi and chai. Can it get better than that? In the evening we return to the hostel for a night of bonfire under the starlit skies. 

Day 3 - Jalori Pass - Serolsar Lake

Have a hearty breakfast and prepare for a day of hiking from Jalori Pass. Here we start our trail to the magical Serolsar lake through dense jungles. Once you arrive at Serolsar lake, it will feel like a piece of heaven on earth – a perfect spot to get those Insta – worthy shots!

Day 4 - Jibhi - Tirthan Valley

Today, we head to Himachal’s best kept secret – Tirthan valley. Cycle along the Tirthan river as we come across hidden waterfalls and nature trails. In the evening we dip our legs in the river as you binge on delicious local food. 

Day 5 - Great Himalayan National Park

A trip to Tirthan is incomplete without a trail to the gate of The Great Himalayan National park. With numerous varities of birds and trees you come across unique every step of the way.  The fun increases ten-fold when we have our picnic lunch along one of the numerous waterfalls along the trail. Take a dip at the Hippo falls and rejuvinate amidst the lush greenery around you.  In the evening we enjoy a hearty meal with some bonfire. 

Day 6 - Tirthan Valley - Rafting - Shangarh

After some breakfast, prepare yourself for a day of adventure. Brave the rapids as we row and meander through the Beas river. After gorging on several bowls of piping hot maggi we make our way to the mesmerizing meadows of Shangarh. Overnight stay at a quirky hostel. 

Day 7 - Shangarh

The backpacker in you will be on cloud nine as you take in the sheer beauty and purity of Shangarh while you decide your day of leisure. We can either head to Lake Prashar or for your fill of the mountains relax and play some cricket at the Shangarh meadows. In the evening, a bonfire in these meadows with stars above, local food and company of our fellow backpackers is the cherry on the cake right?

Day 8 - Pundrik Lake

On our lasy day in Shangarh, we make our way to Pundrik Lake – a hidden lake unknown to the tourists. The numerous stories of deities will keep you hooked as you trek to the lake. In the evening we board our overnight bus to Delhi as you sigh over the memories of your trip.
