When I first read about this place, I right away made up my mind to visit this place. Kasar Devi is a small village in the Almora district of Uttarakhand. Nestled at an altitude of 6950 ft, this quaint village offers a panoramic view of the snow-clad peaks of Nanda Kot, Nanda Devi, Panchachulli, Trishul Parvat and a few more.
An Elixir to your Eyes, Body, Mind and Soul.
Listen, I am not exaggerating at all. I could feel my body detoxifying while I was there. No wonder, this place was popular with the likes of Bob Dylan, George Harris, singer-songwriter Cat Stevens, sitarist Sh. Ravi Shankar and many other notable personalities. They came here to meditate, relax and recharge their spirits.
Kasar Devi village is perched on Crank’s Ridge. It gets its name from a second-century temple situated there of the same name. This place was the hottest hub for the hippies, art lovers, poets, mavericks and explorers in the 1950s and 60s. I, being Uttarakhandi, didn’t know about this mystic place (till 2019) whereas, people from across the globe are cashing in on the magnetism of this place for ages. Wow! Shame on me(main pani pani ho gayi)
