Tirthan Valley is easily one of the most breathtaking places in all of Himachal Pradesh. Surrounded by the Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP), this beautiful untouched valley is located right next to the Tirthan river. Spring is easily the best time to go, with blooming flowers all around. For an escape from the city, but also an escape from the more-crowded Himachali getaways, it doesn’t get much better than Tirthan. You will hardly meet anyone during your two to three days here, not counting the charming, hospitable locals of course. People usually stay one night in the valley before going off on a trek in the GHNP, since Tirthan falls in the so-called buffer zone of the Park. But if you’ve only got one (preferably long) weekend, you can also do one-day treks or enjoy the many adventure activities.

Things to see and do

Angling

img_0853There is plenty good reason for Tirthan Valley to lay claim to the anglers’ paradise sobriquet. Be it passion or passing fancy, come, and find out for yourself. We will be happy to assist with the required license (Rs100/day). Experts available on chargeable basis.

The Great Himalayan National Park
A place for trekkers, hikers and nature lovers alike, the Great Himalayan National Park provides one of the finest trekking opportunities in the country. Note that it takes a minimum of two days’ trekking from Tirthan Valley to even enter the park; an overnight two-day trek is therefore the minimum. But for those craving more action, your stay can be extended up to seven days.

12400831373_6e49a886c4_kExcursions within the GHNP include the Rolla Trek (two days), Shilt Hut Trek (three-four days), Maranhi Trek (three-five days) and Raktisar Trek (five-seven days). It is best to go with professional Guides, as tourists aren’t allowed to venture alone in GHNP.

One of the incredible things about the park is the fact that not a single person is said to reside within it; even the villagers who live at the border are not allowed inside, presumably to retain the delicate ecological conditions of the park. Only some trails have been carved out and maintained by park management. Rest assured, though, that even a planned itinerary for GHNP will guarantee beautiful vistas and excellent trekking terrains.

Note that permits are needed to enter the park. You need to carry your own tents, sleeping bags, stove and utensils. Guides and porters are essential. Biodiversity Tourism and Community Advancement, GHNP, Sai Ropa can arrange guides and equipment.

Day Hikes


Tirthan Valley is also a great starting point for one-day treks in its verdant surrounds, through small, quaint villages and towards beautiful vistas.

The Dingcha and Tinder Hike starts from Gushaini, and goes up till the local village of Tinder. The trek to Dingcha is slightly steep and can take about two hours to complete. But it is worth it, as Dingcha offers a fantastic panoramic view of the Tirthan Valley. On the way back, you can cross the village of Ropa, and stop by for lunch in Tinder.

The Nohanda-West Hike, also called the Himalayan Villages Hike, starts from the village of Pekhari, and the trail goes through several other villages, including Lakcha and Nahin, with spectacular views of the GHNP.

The hike to the Park gate goes along the Tirthan River, crossing a few traditional villages and deep forests, and can last up to five hours, so it is best to head out early and plan out your breaks. At the park gate, there is a campsite where you can have lunch.

p1000769Serolsar Lake is feasible via Jalori Pass. Hence, for this one-day trek, you will first need to take a jeep to Jalori Pass, and then walk for two-three hours till you reach the mountain lake. Upon your arrival, the trip will seem immediately worth it when you gaze out at the crystal-clear waters. The sight is nothing short of heaven.

Where to stay and eat
You can set up your tents at the camping sites close to the streams. Outside the GHNP are the Ropa Forest Complex with five rooms and Forest Rest Houses in Shangher and Shakti village, with two rooms each. Or stay at the Sai Ropa Forest Rest House. All these can be booked at the Park Office (Tel: 01902-265320).

Thanks to new visa laws by the government, wherein more people across the world will get to witness the beauty of varied weather in India and the rich cultural experience our country offers, thus giving a boost to tourism in India in 2014.

According to a report released by World Travel & Tourism Council, the tourism sector in India is expected to witness above-average growth this year.

It is estimated that improved visa facilitation could bring in up to 6 million more international visitors to India which could in turn create 1.8 million more travel jobs in the country over three years. During 2013, travel and tourism industry contributed Rs 63,160 crore to the economy and generated 35 million jobs.

Also, India is one of the few countries where the weather changes after every two to three months. The spatial and temporal changes in the climate and weather in India act as a great magnet to attract tourists and enable them to enjoy the gift of nature.
