I had heard a lot about the Kheerganga trek. I found TLOW- via Google, and the way the website and the content was presented, I decided to take this trip with Sherwin. And what a trip! The trek to Kheerganga was tiring, back breaking but epic. It is a complete visual treat. This is why it’s on the travel bucket list of many travellers. Best place to stay. Tosh was cafe I have ever been to. The fairy forest in Pulga is something I never saw before. It was an amazing journey with the crazy fellow travellers. Thanks Sherwin for all the memories. Reply Samrut January 15, 2017 I have never had this kinda trip ever and it was an amazing journey. All the places from Chalal to tosh to Pulga were all beautiful. But the best feeling was reaching on top of Kheerganga. After stopping for more than 100 times in 6 hours, the feeling for finally reaching Kheerganga, sitting on that swing and getting lost in the mountains was crazy. It was a dream to have such a kind of a trip, living with on known people, living in huts, in villages on mountains. Hot chocolates, pizzas, joints never had so much of these in my entire life. The best was the hot bath in the freezing cold weather in Kheerganga which was so refreshing. Another amazing place was the forest and playing games. Amazing journey, amazing people, amazing home stays. Thank you Sherwin. #TLOW Reply Shadrach January 15, 2017 The trip was crazy!! Loved the entire journey from Delhi to Kasol!!! The view was so good, the place we stayed at Kasol has mountains all around with a very homely feeling. So the next day, the trip/hike to kheerganga started with a bus ride and then the hike started. At the begenning it was difficult but as we got closer to Kheerganga I just did not want to give up. The vibe,place,people,whether was all so good. The cafe ‘gold star’ kept us warm. As it got dark and the stars came out the entire sky was covered with stars. “That very moment the darkness, the bright shining stars, the cold breeze was the best moment of my life. Sherwin just kept the hype as per what I expected. TLOW did a really good job. So the next morning was the hot springs as our way back down to tosh. Sherwin got us checked into the cafe called Yamuna. Amazing and pleasant as per what I wanted. Excellent place and wonderful vibes. The next day we hiked to Pulga, a nearby village as soon as we reached we left out bags and went into the forest, where we found a really nice spot. We chilled there, relaxed and played dog and the bone and had a quiz which w Mumbaikars won in the trip. I am glad I met friends like Zain, Payal, Zannut, Nikhil and Nafisa. TLOW kept the hype going and did not let us down. I’m now in Kasol and we are going to head back home. I JUST DONT FEEL LIKE LEAVING. il miss this trip. Definitely be making more trips with TLOW. Reply Zain January 15, 2017 Thank you Sherwin for all the care and love #TLOW Having extra time on my side Sherwin was kind enough to have me over for few days in advance. Loved the hike to Kheerganga. 🙂 The hike was way better than I expected. The cafes and their insane pizzas. In 10 days I’ve eaten 12 pizzas, I loved em so much. The guest house in Kasol feels amazing, such amazing kids. The organisation was fine and very adventures journeys. I am in Extasy..

The hike was awesome, much needed hike to keep the body moved and warmed. It was a fun bunch to travel with. Thanks a ton KEEP IT ROGH! KEEP IT UNEXPECTED!!

The Nepali family at Tosh, hikes to Pulga and Tosh, waffles at moon dance, fairy Forrest @ Pulga and times spent with all other backpackers have been experiences of a life time. Thanks TLOW for this trip!! This one will stay with me for every . Reply Pallavi Bagal March 27, 2016 My fourth trip with TLOW and it keeps getting better. The hikes have been amazing from Barshani to Tosh, Tosh to Pulga and from Pulga to almost Manikaran. Superb stays, awesome food & amazing stuff. Great weather even better company. It’s sad that the trip is almost coming to an end. I’m sure TLOW will come out with international trips as well by the time I travel with them post MBA. You’ll have been amazing people throughout BOOM SHIVA. Reply Divya Sood March 27, 2016 Having Planned to visit Kasol for the past 2.5 years, this trip has been like a dream come true. Our home stays in Kasol, Tosh & Pulga will remain with me for a long time as this was my most authentic and rustic experience of my life. This trip also holds a special significance for me since I got to experience first hand, the stories my grand mother told me about her life in Himachal. Thank you TLOW for this well managed trip and adding a brilliant personal touch to the entire journey. Good luck for your further plans and hope TLOW grows leaps and bounds. Reply Ratnakar March 27, 2016 That feeling of when you can only dream of seeing, and when you can match it with memories and calendars, when you are seeing them straight with your eyes that’s AMAZING.

Never backpacked solo I wanted to do this trip for only Kasol. I have this scene as my desktop, mobile wallpaper, so wanted to experience it. This is how I got in touch with TLOW. First time solo travelling to northern India. The whole experience with TLOW team was good. They know places inside out and have good contacts with locals. Could not do Kheerganga will come back for that for sure. You guys are doing a good job keep doing it. Cya soon. Reply Guneet Singh Oberoi October 26, 2015 It was the best trip I have had so far. I got to see the most beautiful landscape. I didn’t expect that I can trek so much without any injury. Experience with TLOW was very good. Over all it was a nice experience would love to travel with TLOW again and soon. Reply Siddharth Kuthy October 26, 2015 It’s hard to describe the phenomenon called the Himalayas. Words would only lay promise to the sheer splendor of her views, her fragrance and her ice cold embrace. Kasol was impressive, exciting; Tosh surreal And Kheerganga life altering. This journey from a sedentary busy bee to someone who scaled the Parvati Cliffs, has been delightful, firesome, exciting and a whole lot of other adjectives I can’t remember at the moment.

The hike to Rasol seemed impossible for me but thanks to you’ll for staying back and helping me complete the hike. The guesthouses at every place were unique and was the quintessential backpacker stay. All the best for the future. Reply Delicia John April 23, 2015 Thank you The Land Of Wanderlust. The choice of the guest houses, perfect location and gave a himachal feel. You’ll are good motivators. You’ll build up the confidence of the backpackers. The treks wouldn’t have been possible for me if not for you guys. I had a lot of fun. Amazing experience. Keep up the good work. 🙂 Reply Sarathram S April 23, 2015 I was a solo-backpacker looking for a group of amazing travellers to share that experience. TLOW was exactly what I was looking for. An amazing set of people to chill with. I started off with no idea of TLOW but considering the precise information on the TLOW site I decided to give the trip a shot. Sherwin IS A great guy to chill with. I really liked the fact that everyone was given a lot of leeway and freedom during the trip and TLOW wasn’t one of those babysitting like organisations. The choice of the stays, locations chosen to visit etc was flawless and their through detailed knowledge about everything. I had a great time hiking and grabbing some great meals. Parvati valley is a kickass place and TLOW are a great set of people to experience travel with.

If there is snow fall the road will be blocked for a few hours and then open again. The roads will surely not be as bad as what they were when you went there in December.

The trek to Malana will always remain special in my heart. The beauty of the place is indescribable. Will never forget the camping part of the trip from making sandwiches, salad, dal rice, barbecue chicken every part of it was great fun. Thank you guys.
