MEADOWS OF KUSH KALYAN TREK

Adjacent to Uttarkashi, the region of Western Garhwal is a paradise for trekkers and adventure lovers. One of the most stunning regions in the area is the wide meadow of Kush Kalyan. It takes two days through thick forest and age old mountain villages to reach Kush Kalyan. The region is referred as the ‘Bugyal of Blessing’ and also called the Lake District of Garhwal as the higher reaches are decorated with multiple lakes.
