Tosh village is too beautiful that it couldnt be penned down. Wittnessed aome melting snow while sunset which is an imsane experience. You can enjoy at cafes at Tosh before your way bck to the camp. Had dinner. Enjoyed Bonfire. Day2: If you are trekker then use this day for an early morning trek to a stunning water falls which is little above the Tosh village. Come back for a sun kissed breakfast. I had Kheerganga in my list so i started to Barshaini which is the starting point of the Kheer ganga trek. So its ideal to stay at Tosh before/after a trek to kheerganga. Amenities at camp: Food Tents Cafe Kitchen Clean washrooms And what not amazing sceneries around. An amazing one day backpacking experience which could carry lot of insane memories. Happy Trekking..

I had an amazing experience during this one day trek. We were provided tents which were very comfortable. There is provisio for common bathrooms ( nothing fancy, just the basic requirements). The view from the place is breathtaking. Campfires are setup at the night where u can look at the clear skies with lots of stars.The owner Rishabh is very friendly , jolly and helpful. The caretaker , Pavan was really sweet helpful and took us for the trek and showed the places around. The food options are obviously limited due to the terrain but still delicious. There are no restrictions and I totally recommend this place for a delightful experience.
