Pari Tal trek

Distance: 1 km

Time: 20 minute one-way

Grade: ***(Low river level)  | ***** (Medium river level) | Not accessible (Monsoon)

This is a trek that traverses the Soulitude property to reach the river bed at the forest boundary. It requires navigating between boulders on the dry parts of the river bed leads to the absolutely spectacular and pristine Pari Tal, a small lake fed by a waterslide. This area is absolutely untouched by man, and can only be accessed through the path forming part of our property. Be sure to ask about the mythical stories of this lake and the reason why it is called Pari Tal ! Be sure to schedule 2 hours for this trek, since you would want to spend time at this location. People of all ages have done this trek during the non-monsoon months. However, river levels play an important part in how easy or difficult this trek is, so please use your discretion before deciding who can do this trek on the particular day. During monsoons, once the river levels rise, this trek is prohibited.

This is a scenic trek that starts at the century old “Jhoola Pull” and brings you to Soulitude. It ambles along the Kalsa river and requires a river crossing twice on foot. When the water level rises, one can use the Jhoola Pull to cross the river at the higher point and then continue with the trek. The next river crossing on foot can be done by wading in ankle deep water, or on an array of stones, or on wooden planks. In the evenings, this is a nice round-trip 2 hour trek that can be extended to go upto the Chanfi village shops on the main road.
