Overview
A beautiful view and a gushing waterfall await you as a part of this Jeep Safari.
Accessible only to Exsul guests, the waterfall is part of a temple complex attended to by a charismatic medicant, affectionately called Babaji. He moved to the hills decades ago and has tended to this temple dedicated to the goddess of the hills, Vindhyavasini. Past the temple, a tunnel through the
mountainside, built by a hydro-electric power generation company, allows you to walk a little further. At the end of this road, you can find a massive rock that hangs over the valley below.
If you sit quietly and you are lucky, you just might spot black bears sunning themselves in the distance.

I had the fortune of going to India days before the coronavirus shutdown. My trip was planned with Exsul travel. I told them I wanted a diverse experience in food and culture. They were fantastic! I was fearful I might might run into problems If I did it myself and I have traveled extensive. Not only did I see the Golden Temple, Taj Mahal, and the Himalayan Mountains, but I got a historic India education that was fascinating. They were attentive to all my needs and asked lots of questions ensure I got the experience I was looking for. I was very happy with their knowledge and services.

Palampur is a relatively offbeat destination nestled amidst the foothills of Dhauladhar range of Himalayas in the state of Himachal Pradesh. Through desktop research we had come to know about Exsul Travel and I am glad that we went ahead  to book this jeep ride with them. We were 7 friends and  the initial though process was that it (this jeep ride) presents us a unique opportunity to explore things and experience which we have never tried/had  in any of other outings. Today, having experience this mountain top jeep ride, me and my friends can vouch for the fact that this jeep ride is everything you come to the mountains for waterfalls, breath taking view of gushing streams / river passing through the plains, slopes of emerald green tea plantation,  picturesque landscapes, chance to site some beautiful birds of the great himalayan national park  and more importantly getting up and close with the stunning Dhauladhar range. The promotor of Exsul, Mr. Harmeet, is  very passionate about his trade and committed to provide an awesome experience  to his guests as oppose to just renting of a jeep. Further the staff at Exsul are very courteous, knowledgeable and proactive in providing information / commentary while on the jeep ride. They also guided us with itinerary of local Palampur site seeing and suggested couple of points which we were not aware of. Our group was distributed in two jeeps and both jeep drivers Mr Chaman and Mr. Amar were very well mannered & well informed locals. I would definitely give Exsul Travel  a 5 star ratings. It was such an awesome experience and I would recommend it as a must do activity during your visit to Palampur.

I did the Gaddi trek with Exsul. We, Shilpa, Rajmal and I, went up the mountain at a good pace. Shilpa is a sweet, positive and proudly Himachalyan woman with whom I had interesting conversations all the way. Rajmal is an experienced guide, who knows not only the trails but also the animals and the indigenous plants. Both of them love there home and make you enjoy the environment even more. I enjoyed walking through the forests of pine trees and rhododendrons, spoting vultures and eagles, and the old architecture of Gaddi houses. The view is also breathtaking. We had a good lunch and the best "smoked" chai I ever had! I can only highly recommend choosing Exsul for your activities in Palampur!

We opted for two tours from Exsul….trekking and dinner with the locals. Our trip started with a nice cup of tea and introduction to the Exsul team along with the fellow traveller. We have two small kids and were very apprehensive of trekking along with kids. Exsul team gave us all the comfort to ensure safety. My wife was also a first time trekker. One of the promoters, Mr. Harmit Singh trekked along with us. His focus on quality of service, customized attention suited us who are almost novice trekkers and potentially less mobile young kids. He is cheerful, helpful, knowledgeable and kept on informing the precaution we need to take across the trekking route. The whole trekking took more than 4 hours and we experienced some of the best views that Himachal can offer. Some of the views that we will remember for the rest of our lives. After trekking, we had dinner arranged by Exsul team in the nearby village at a local’s house. The food was authentic Himachal cuisine but more importantly they invited selected friends who made the evening a really memorable one. Exsul is promoted by two persons who are passionate of what they are doing. The passion reflects with the way they handle their customers. Apart from the promoters, every team members came across friendly and highly professional. Thanks a lot Harmit and Tamara !!! We look forward to coming back soon !!!!

Dearest Ganesh, At the outset let me thank you for visiting Palampur and choosing Exsul for your local experiences. It was so motivational to see your little kids walking up a steep mountain. You were definitely definitely the true adventure family. I would also like to thank you for choosing the village fireside dinner. Most of our employees are from Dhared village and their family thoroughly enjoyed interacting with your family as well. You charmed all of us and we look forward to seeing you again on a hike and many more magic moments. Please extend our regards to your family as well. Thank you for your review and support. Sincerely, Harmit and Tamara
