“Never before had I felt so much tranquility and peace drift through the air. When I look around, for a moment I feel I am in paradise, well almost. I realized I am in Kasol”.
This quaint part of the himalayas is the perfect brew for quenching the adventure seeking thirsty souls.
Kasol, the quintessential Himalayan village, or you may call it, the hippie’s paradise, is beside the banks of the Parvati River and nestled between the picturesque mountains and the Parvati valley, Walk through the bends of the mountain roads and more often than not, you will be welcomed with the smell of burning herbs coursing through the otherwise unpolluted air of this region. When in Kasol, don’t be surprised if sometimes you get to hear booming techno music from the thicket. You never know you may come across one of the many hidden psychedelic parties conducted out in the forests by the local Israelis settled in this region.
Kasol is a laid back place where even the air is filled with intoxication. Here the days turn to weeks and weeks to months for thousands of travellers. If you go a little far, you’ll chance upon the beautiful little town of Malana. which is famous world over for ‘Malana cream’, a strain of Cannabis hashish. Villagers here call themselves descendants of Alexander the Great and their local court system even today reflects the ancient Greek law.
When exploring this beautiful stretch of the Parvati Valley Circuit, one cannot just come back without visiting Tosh and venturing out for a trek to Kheerganga. The Trek is among the snow-capped peaks, through the pristine forests, and you’re finally rewarded with a dip in the Hot Water Springs with a view to kill for.
Camping overnight here in the meadows and waking up to the majestic view of ice cones towering all over will remind you of the screensavers you’ve always dreamed of visiting once in your lifetime!
