Situated besides the Tirthan River in Himachal Pradesh at an altitude of 1600 meters, Tirthan Valley is a gateway to the Great Himalayan National Park. A place where one can easily forget the world to relax and have loads of nature walks following one trail or the other, into the woods or besides the river. One can amazingly feel the nature in pure bliss here. If nature walks are the thing you like or even Trout Fishing then just head Tirthan. There are a lot of treks ranging from 4-15 days even which an avid trekker can explore and reach as high as 4000 meters approximately. In all it’s an ideal place for camping, bonfires, playing music, getting together to know each other (helpful in team or relation building, eating out, lazing etc.. and the list goes on to make it complete holiday destination.
Although it’s a very nice, quite, relaxed and pleasant place through out the year but of course during “Spring Season” it’s just amazingly beautiful. Fully loaded with apple orchards the beauty of Tirthan Valley gets ready to mesmerize any soul on earth. Do note that in winters the place gets very cold and vulnerable towards wildlife interference especially by the presence of Leopards and Bears in this area because snow at heights forces them to descend towards valley. In snow due to less amount of food on the mountains these leopards and bears are bound to attack, so be careful while having a walk in the woods.

Driving is most convenient, although local transport also exists. The storm masks the gaping mountains and clouds cling to nearby pines, seemingly trapped by the conifers’ needles. Developed over the past decade, this part of the village consists of a few unimpressive shops and a liquor store. Start off your first morning sipping tea on the verandah outside our rooms. The verandah looks upon a perennial garden. Behind the garden loomed the verdant summer hills of the lower Himalaya dotted with hundreds of ripe apple trees.
