Gone are the days when travel agents planned the destination and charted the itinerary of honeymoon trips for young couples. The new-gen couples love to explore the lands that are less frequented by tourists. They are ready to take each other's hand and head to some of the most amazing destinations to celebrate their moments of love.
A trekking honeymoon from the Kasol village in Himachal Pradesh to Grahan is an amazing experience for young couples to cherish forever. Grahan, a small hamlet which is abundantly blessed by nature, is a dream destination for the nature lovers. The small wooden houses, misty mornings, fresh air, beautiful mountains and valleys, and the lush greenery, add to scintillating charm of this picturesque village.
Grahan is rightly called the 'hamlet of love' as the natives never marry outside their village. That must the reason why most of the marriages happening in this village are love marriages. Bus services are available from Delhi to Bhunder in Bhatinda, before heading to Grahan.
The bus journey from Bhunder to Grahan offers some of the most beautiful sights of bucolic settings and mesmerizing nature. The pristine river and the misty valley add to the charm of the entire place. The breath taking view of the Parvati valley is one of the highlights of the Grahan trip. Apple, peach, and pomegranate trees line the sides of the roads.
One should pack enough food and drinking water for a journey to Kasol. However, there are plenty of restaurants and small eateries at Kasol where the visitors can try out local delicacies.
The six hour long trek from Kasol to Grahan has some enchanting sights of idyllic settings and stunning nature in store for the tourists. One has to tread through the mud paths and at times climb over hard rocks to reach Grahan. Where maps and GPS fail, the sweet songs of the birds and the soothing sound of flowing Parvati River, lead the way.
The extremely beautiful hamlet is as idyllic as a fairytale village. Apples and peaches are mainly cultivated in Grahan. It is at Grahan that the majestic beauty of the Parvati River unravels in its fullest glory. Tonga carts are the primary mode of transport here. Though there is no electricity in the village, it wouldn’t pose a great problem to those seeking tranquillity and peace of mind. The extremely friendly villagers love to welcome tourists to their abodes and often offer hearty meals as well. Small huts or wooden cabins, just like the local houses, are available for the visitors to stay in.
