About Our Offbeat Tours :

We strongly believe that true Himalayan exploration is incomplete if you have not walked along its trails. That's why every tour we offer includes walks – because we believe that without stepping into the heart of the Himalayas, the experience remains incomplete!

At Infinite Journeys, we have been promoting the concept that we call "Active Holidays" - Activities that are do-able and enjoyed by everyone are a must on our Offbeat Tours, which includes 'hikes'.

These hikes are done at a leisurely pace which enables you to enjoy the Himalayan Views"

This makes it suitable for young-active Families & individual travelers as well !!!

About Offbeat Himachal (Lahual with Sonaugi) Tour :
Embark on a mesmerizing Offbeat Himachal tour, where we experience two beautiful locations.

JISPA : A small village in the Lahaul district of Himachal Pradesh; is known for its stunning scenery, and serene atmosphere.

SONAUGI : Not far from Manali and yet far away (thankfully) from its chaos, Sonaugi, built in the traditional Kath-Kuni construction style, exudes the rustic charm.

Experience the stark beauty of the barren Himalayas in Lahaul, where the landscape rivals the more well-known regions of Spiti and Ladakh.

Witness the mesmerizing transition from the lush green Himalayas ahead of Manali to the striking shades of brown in Lahaul.

Both landscapes possess a unique beauty and charm, offering a captivating contrast that enriches your journey.

The two enchanting hikes that are part of this tour, unveil the beauty of the Himalayas, and the local heritage and history.

Hike # 1 : Hike to Khangsar Khar (2.5 hours)
Hike # 2 : Hike to Nashala Village (2 hours)
