 1. What Is Kasol Famous For- Facts To Know.



Before going to trip you must know about the place where you are going so, you may not fall in any inconvenience or get cheated by the locals. So, Let's get started.

Kasol is a village in Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh in Northern India situated in parvati valley. Not so interesting right. So keep on reading to know some of the unknown facts about Kasol. Parvati valley is one of the most beautiful valley in the world. Kasol is fast emerging as a hub of backpackers, trekkers and nature lovers. Let's remember some old things. When we were kids we used to make some drawings in our art class which basically consists of mountains, in between which a river flowed. Trees and clouds in the surrounding. Try to remember. And when I first visited Kasol I felt if that drawings have come alive and I was living in it. It is so awesome there that you can spend hours there and not getting bored. 

Are you eating Indian Food In Kasol. If you are doing so and thinking you will get only nature and have to fill your stomach only with that then you are so wrong. They also have great foods. Try to avoid eating Indian food in Kasol. Kasol is famous for Israeli Food. Locals have embraced their food, language and culture like their own. If you are in Kasol which is also called the mini Israel and you didn't try the Israeli food, your trip will be incomplete. 

Kasol is the perfect destination for Hippies. You will see these people roam in loose and natural fiber clothes. Hippies are interested in an alternative lifestyle and rebelling against the society prone to increasing technology and easing their lives. They are focused to freedom and getting back to nature. When I wore these epic clothes for first time I felt very comfortable and calm. Not getting tensed of my dirty clothes. The feeling was so different and amazing. Travelers going there, must try the Hippy clothes. That will make your trip more peaceful and calm.

Every Indian Traveler thinks that why are there so many young Israelis in Kasol. From now strop thinking. Here is the answer. In one of trip to Himachal Predesh, the state where Kasol is located, I had a chance to join a friendly Israeli group in my road trip and this summarizes the reason given by them. 

  • As per norm in the country, every Israeli needs to go through the span of (probably 2-3 years) for extensive military training. Of course, as expected, their life is really hard in the early 20's, while people of most countries are struggling for career and education, the Israelis got an altogether different sort of problem, which affects their mental health at a very young age. The routine life of the army, at times, makes them really depressed. So, to get back to normal life they need time somewhere else, far from their country. Unfortunately, as we all know, Israeli are not beloved by most of the countries around it and in their early 20's, many cannot really intend to make an elongated euro trip which can be far more costly. Now on one hand India is an amazing yet cheap place to travel to and on the other hand Indians are not at all hostile (in fact really friendly) towards Jews. So, India is a very common and comfortable destination for Israeli in general. 


2. What is Kasol Famous For- Best Time To Visit Kasol. 



If you are looking for some snow show, winters are the best time to visit. Which is obviously my favorite season, though there are chances of blocking of roads due to snow but still I liked the snow. Or if you like the high greenery and want to inhale all the greenery beside you, visit during the months of April and June. In April the temperature increases and snow melts, so you have enough room to trek. You must camp under the starry skies in the lap of nature, if you are visiting Kasol in the summers.

8. Itinerary:

Kasol is a solo traveler’s Paradise and a destination perfect for hash lovers and those who want some time away from the monotony of the scheduled life in the lap of mountains and the hash-high ambience.
You can almost stay there a month and explore Kasol and its nearby villages which too are beautiful and serene. But for a long weekend getaway, 3–4 days are enough to explore the place to have a memorable “Kasol” trip.
Okay, Let me just break down the whole process.
What to do and Where to Go
Day 1:
You reach Kasol. Check in to a Hostel/Hotel. Try ShivShanti/ Evergreen Cafe and head to Manikaran Gurudwara. ( can have langar there)
Spend some time on the riverside. Chill !!!
Day 2:
Must Visit Malana Village. or else if you are a trek person, opt for Kheerganga Trek. I just won’t get into the details about how to reach there. You can stay there in a tent (Well, you should).
And Chill !!! Of course..
Day 3:
You bid adieu to the lovely Kheerganga and head back to Barshaini. You must be tired, and have two options:
Either go back to Kasol, or move to Tosh which is around 4kms away from there. I would suggest the latter one. You can stay there at the famous Pinki Didi Guest House or come back the same day according to your time boundaries.
Note:
Kasol trip should not be a kind of trip where you will be just rushing from one place to another. Don’t do that just for sake of crossing these places off your list. Give enough time to each place. You can skip one or two places according to your time limitations.
And Luckily if you have enough time left, explore the nearby villages like Kalga, Pulga and Chalal.
