Hello everyone,

We are a bunch of young lads planning to go to Tosh-Kasol-Kheerganga from Delhi during Diwali long weekend (19-22 October). After some research on the web, we have come up with a rough itinerary for our tour.

Day 0: (Overnight bus journey)
9-9:30 pm: Start from Delhi by bus (preferably HRTC)
Day 1: (Overnight at Tosh)
10-10:30 am: Reach Bhuntar
11:30: Start from Bhuntar for Tosh by cab
2 pm: Reach Tosh
Day 2: (Overnight at Kheerganga/Tosh)
7 am: Start from Tosh for Kheerganga
12:30-1 am: Reach Kheerganga
2:30-3 pm: Start for Tosh (?)
Day 3: (Overnight at Kasol/Challal)
7 am: Start for Tosh from Kheerganga(Not if came back to Tosh previous day)
11 am: Start for Kasol from Tosh/Barshaini
1 pm: Reach Kasol
Day 4: (Overnight bus)
7 am: Start for Manali from Kasol
10 am: Reach Manali
9 pm: Start for Delhi from Manali


I also have a few queries related to the above itinerary:
1. I have found quite a number of bus operators on the Delhi-Bhuntar route, but unfortunately could not find a way to book HRTC buses. From some website I got to know that the HRTC buses start from ISBT Kashmiri Gate at regular intervals of around 1 hour, but would it be possible to get vacant seats if we do not reserve earlier. If we have to reserve, what is the method to do that?

2. Till what time are HRTC buses available from Delhi?

3. What are approximate cab fares from Bhuntar to Tosh for 5 people? Do we have to book a cab entirely or shared vehicles are also available?

4. What would be a better option between trek to Kheerganga from Tosh and come back on the same day or stay at Kheerganga overnight, given that we are all guys of age 22-25 and have some prior experience of trekking?

5. How to travel from Tosh to Kasol?

6. Is it better to stay at Kasol or in some village like Challal?

Please try to address the queries that I have and also feel free to share any other inputs and suggestions which might help plan our trip better. Also, if you have any kind of contact details of accommodation/vehicle around Kasol/Tosh/Kheerganga, please share it with me.

Thanks a lot in advance. Looking forward to some great responses!

Thanks a lot Aarosh for your prompt reply and the leads. I am being able to access the HRTC bus info through their website now and planning to book tomorrow itself! The thread link which you shared is a bit old and I think a lot have changed since then. Also, if someone could help me out with some other info it'll be of immense help! Thanks

Hi All,

I am new to this forum and had posted this thread in hopes of getting useful information as all the posts related to Kasol/Tosh in Indiamike are quite outdated. But, it seems not a lot of people out here are ready to help!
