6-Day Parvati Valley Bike and Hike
Day 1: You will be picked up at your hotel in Manali and start your cycling tour with a mostly downhill pass towards Bhuntar. On the way we will visit the beautiful Naggar castle and cycle through many traditional Himalayan villages with intricately carved wooden houses. Stay overnight in Bhuntar.Day 2: Start your day with a combination of gradual uphill and downhill as we head towards the holy town of Manikaran where is famous for its natural hot water springs inside the temple. We will pass by Kasol that is considered a haven for those long term Israeli backpackers. Day 3: The road becomes more bumpy as we cycle along to Tosh. The amazing mountain scenery makes up for the largely unpaved road. Day 4: We say goodbye to our bikes and begin the 5-hour hike to Khir Ganga (2,960 m) crossing many streams and old temples. Imagine all the time being surrounded by rolling valley views edged with high mountain peaks. Day 5: The village of Khir Ganga is so delightful that we will spend the whole day exploring the natural beauty all around including the natural hot springs and ancient caves. Day 6: We will start descending the mountain back towards Tosh where a jeep will await us to take us back to Manali where you will be dropped off at your hotel of choice.
