The post lunch hours were spent loitering around, looking for excuses to kill time. And when we ran out of them, we ate some more. Initial plans were made to visit Malana, the stoner's paradise, but was aborted due to lack of further days off. My friend had to return to work the next day.
By evening, we boarded a bus back to Bhuntar and from there caught our ride to Delhi (which we had pre-booked online). We reached Delhi by 5 in the morning and ended our trip.
Start date - 26 March 2019
Total Cost - ₹7000
1) Kasol is known as stoner's paradise because of supreme quality marijuana found there. Consuming it is fine in the town itself but taking it out of the district is strictly forbidden. Actual, random police checks do take place to assure compliance of the law.
2) Whenever going to the Himalayas, always carry a sunscreen lotion. The sun is brutal and unforgiving in the higher altitudes. It took me a two weeks to get my original skin tone back.
3) Although accommodation in Kasol is cheap, food is expensive there as it has to be carried for great distances before reaching the place. Two Parathas can cost anywhere from ₹80-₹120. Be mindful of that.
