DAY1 & 2...(KASOL)
The bus from
Chandigarh dropped me at bhunter bus stand.From there i took a local bus towards manikaran-barshaini. Kasol village lies 3km before manikaran.As soon as i got down from the bus in kasol, I immediately rushed to the kasol bridge to witness the heavenly dawn. To my surprise i saw a lot of people.After spending an hour there . I went to a small coffee shop which comes in the end on the way to kasol-chalal bridge. That particular shop is must recommended above all fancy and overpriced caffes in kasol. I had cheese onion toast with a italian cappuccino. That was some nicest breakfast i could get in kasol.Moreover the owner is a local boy who is friendly and witty with his talks.You vl find quite a no.of foreigners there sitting ,relaxing and rolling papers. In the evening i went to chalal village. Just a small walk of 20-25 min from kasol you will land up in a another beautiful village ..though i didnt stop there but instead i went further to find myself a alone place.Kasol these days has been over exploited.You can even witness traffic jams in kasol. Tats why even the foreigners now do not spend their time in kasol , instead they go towards higher villages. If u want to get a good charas in kasol, its better not to get it from any caffes as it would be highly expensive . Better travel to Grahan village for it. For caffes -evergreen , jim morrison caffes are the best. Try their authentic pizzas and shakes.There is also a newly opened caffe-the hipie trail caffe .You will get pure hippie vibes looking at the art there. For stay in kasol-alpine guest house is the most preferred place. There are also camping places available in kasol .
