One of my friends, Nishikant, had to cut his journey short because his grandfather had fallen ill. He had till late afternoon for the bus, so we decided to visit the famous Manikaran Gurudwara.
Kasol is also called mini Israel. So don't forget to taste Israeli food here. Also we can taste some good Tibetan food and local cuisine. Today we can visit Manikaran which is 5km ahead of Kasol. One can easily reach by walk or can take local bus for 10Rs. Manikaran is pilgrimage canter for Hindus and Sikhs. Its is situated on the river bank of Parvati River.It is also famous for Hot water spring and one can take holy dip in water. One also can have Langer which is served here daily as part of Gurudwar's ritual.Once we come back from Manikaran to Kasol we can plan trip to Tosh valley and Malana Village. Also we can move to Manali which is 75km from Kasol Center. Local buses also run from Kasol which cost 150Rs to Manali.
ManikaranAfter DAY 2 now we decided to move towards Manikaran,so we walked backed to Barshaini from Rudranaag and we were lucky that our trek camp gives good and tasty breakfast in the morning tea and biscuits and parathas with bhaji . so from Rudranaag we boarded a cab to Manikaran and reached Manikaran after 30 minutes. What I saw made me speechless because it was my first time experience where I witnessed the natural Hot spring and it's completely turning the Gurudwara into a mystical and divine place.Manikaran Gurudwara is a must visit spot and don't forget to add this in your trip to Kasol.A lot many foreigners were roaming around the town where most of them were completely astonished by the view of divine Gurudwara amidst past the Hotspring pool.
It took 25-30 minutes to bus and i reached at Bhunter. After exploring and doing a little research about the Trek i took a local bus from Bhunter to Manikaran Sahib at 12:00 in the noon. Bhunter to Manikaran Sahib is 40KMS approx). Local bus took 2 hours to reach Manikaran. There is a beautiful gurudwara called Shri Manikaran Sahib. I went to Gurudwara and had some beautiful moments of peace.
