About the trip :
The Kasol-Grahan-Tosh circuit, a perfect getaway for beginners looking for an adventurous trek in the lower Himalayas. The trek is widely popular for its dense pine forests, natural hot water springs, the Grahan waterfall, lush flora, and fauna etc. Grahan gives the travellers an opportunity for a peaceful retreat without any of the humdrum of typical civilization. One of the most unique things about Grahan is how secluded it is. Not a lot of people know about this small village and there is also not a lot of information to go around. Coming to this place will ensure that you have some brilliant memories that cannot be tarnished by time.
