The last stop for your trip can be Vashisht, a small hamlet between Manali and Solang. When I visited Vashisht the first time, it felt a lot like a condensed form of Kasol. Though crowded towards the beginning, this is a quaint village relatively untouched by commercialization as is the case with Manali. There are a number of restaurants here as well, though nothing lavish. Vashisht offers a great sneak-peek into the day-to-day life of villagers in Himachal and the home-stay options in the village offer incredible views at dirt-cheap prices (Rs250-Rs 300 per night). However, no other services like food, beverages are provided.
