Kasol trip is something like “kam laagat Mei adhik munaafa” (too much profit in lesser amount/effort). The very basic expenses during a trip include traveling and staying.
Now lets break down each two and see how you can do your trip planning in the desired budget.
Considering you are in Delhi now, you have to take a bus to Kullu or Manali and get down at Bhuntar ( a town in Kullu district).
You can opt Volvo that can cost you around 1000–1200 or HRTC buses which are less comfortable but half the price. The cheapest bus that will take you to Bhuntar costs around Rs. 700.
Delhi → Bhuntar = 700
There is good bus connectivity in the area, so you won’t be spending much on travel after reaching there.
Now from Bhuntar to Kasol, you will find regular buses that will charge you a maximum of Rs. 100. (Forgot the exact price but this is the maximum you will be paying)
Bhuntar → Kasol = 100 (maximum)
You must be planning to visit Tosh and Kheerganga. The base point for both these places is Barshaini. You can easily find bus from Kasol to Barshaini (just ask about the timings after reaching there)
Kasol to Barshaini is one hour journey. I wont cost you more than Rs.100
Kasol → Barshaini =100 (maximum)
Total Cost: 700+100+100 = 900
Total Round Trip Cost: 1800 (Approx 2000)
You can stay in hostels in Kasol in dormitory where one bed costs as low as 200–300 for a night.
In tosh and Kheerganga too, you can find guesthouses / tents that charges around 300–400 per person per night.
So, Total cost in staying: 300+400+400= 1100 ( This is for 3 night stay- 1 night in Kasol, 1 in Kheerganga and 1 in Tosh)
Total Basic cost for a 3 day trip : 1800 +1100 = approx. 3000
Now, it depends on you as how much you want to spend on eating and shopping.
There are eateries available there where you don’t have to spend a lot of money on food. So, you can customise all that according to your appetite. If you plan accordingly, this trip won’t cost more than 4–5k.
HAPPY KASOL <3
