From green valleys and white-water streams to towering snow-capped mountains and high-altitude lakes, there is no better trekking destination than the Tirthan Valley. Bordering the 1,171 sq km, UNESCO-listed Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP), Tirthan is the perfect starting point for a life-changing adventure.
The opportunities are unrivalled. Explore the stunning wilderness of the GHNP on the way to Shilt Hut and the 360-degree panoramas of Rakhundi, enjoy the picturesque Jalori Pass and Serolsar Lake, or embark on the truly challenging, such as the Tirth trek to the source of the Tirthan river and scaling the heights of the famous pilgrimage destination of Shrikhand Mahadev (5227m).
The GNHP is home to many of the rare and endangered species of the Western Himalayas such as the bharal, or blue sheep, Himalayan brown bear, Himalayan tahr, musk deer, goral, barking deer and the elusive king of the mountains, the snow leopard. There is also a chance to spot some rare birds including the jujurana, the “king of birds”, the celebrated Western tragopan, crested kingfisher and cheer pheasant.
