The trek starts from the bridge near Old Kasol. Be cautious to take the trail pointing towards right while going ahead. With changing terrains and sounds of the water all along, it is an amazing walk through nature, one should spend sufficient time to chill and enjoy the views that the nature has to offer. There are a couple of resting tents on the way. Towards the end the trail bifurcates into two parts- The easy way which leads to the end of the village-Pulgi part and the difficult way that leaves you directly at the starting of the Grahan village. On an average the trek should take about 4-5 hours.
The village serves as the base camp or starting checkpoint for the Sar Pass trek. Throughout the year the village sees a lot of trekkers coming to avenge the Sar Pass. YHAI also has set up its base camp in the New Grahan part.

The waterfalls are an hour long trek from the village. The path is quite slippery and one must be careful. There are 2 other waterfalls before the main waterfall. One must definitely chill at all 3 waterfalls. The main waterfall has water gushing from 3 directions through a rock and is a mesmerizing view. Try Veg Maggi (blend of nearby found herbs and plants) and Stuffed Bhaturu (Local Bread) served with 3 different sauces at Inder’s shop at the Waterfall.
Wake up to the panoramic view of Cannabis plantation all around, and be treated as part of the family. Stay at Hari Home Stay for as cheap as INR 50 per person a night.
