WHY SHOULD YOU TAKE THIS TREK?
The Hill Hamlet Trail comprises of one day in Kasol and Tosh each. This is an extremely good choice for first-time trekkers wanting to experience hiking in the lower Himalayas. The trek is widely popular for its dense pine forests, natural hot water springs, Tosh waterfall, lush flora, and fauna etc. Tosh gives travellers a unique opportunity to venture into one of the many offbeat destinations that Himachal has to offer. It is not a difficult trek but extremely satisfying to complete. We shall also be taking a day trip to the picturesque and untarnished little village of Kutla. Coming to this place will ensure that you have some brilliant memories that cannot be erased by time. Short hikes from the Kasol and Tosh region lead to many undiscovered and wildly green villages and hamlets.
Hide away in one of the most heavenly hamlets of Himachal
