Started from New Delhi at 11:30pm on 14 july 2017, as it was an unplanned trip we did not have our tickets booked, therefore we choose private cab. It took us 14 hours to reach kasol. But though it was long journey the shiwaliks never let us get tired. We were excited to be in mini israel. Its 546km from new delhi. We were 4 people are we could rent a decent ( clean, spacious) room for rs2500/night at Raj palace. Though there are many good guest house/hotel to stay donot forget to bargain. If you are taking place across the river they charge u high for no reason. As we knew that we wanted to explore and we would spend minimum time at room we were not river specific. it was then 4pm and we were dead hungry. We rushed to moon dance cafe, hogged falafel hummus, pizza, waffles, nutty bar. I felt German cafe was not hygine. Then we tried chocolate cake in down lane of moon dance cafe it was just yum. Then we started trek to chalal. It was amazing. Breath taking hanging bridges. Fast flowing roaring parbati river, shiwaliks with deodar all around was another experience. After which we went to budda cafe, pizza and pan cakes are good plus hookah. You have a salon run by 2 men, for braiding and any new hair style at low cost with quality.
