  1. Kheerganga:
    Distance from Delhi: 550 km
    Difficulty: Moderate
    Nearest hill station: Parvati Valley

    This is the one you have probably heard of. It’s famous as a revered hippie trails. It’s situated at the end of the Parvati Valley of stoner fame (we’re totally not endorsing drugs), do this hike for the pristine view of the mountains and the alpine forests and the struggling, noisy waves of the crashing river. We’d recommend you avoid going there during the months of December and January because the trail gets really slippery.

    Hampta pass rises from the Kullu valley. It’s particularly special because of its crossover characteristics.
