For the very first time I heard about “Kasol” from my elder brother which made me quite curious about the place. Since most of my friends recommended it as well, my curiosity to explore Kasol was at its peak. So the question arises, “How?”

My department trip was coming close and I knew Kasol could be one of the options for the trip. Luckily, majority voted for Kasol and our department trip happened.

Situated in Parvati valley, Kasol, is a little village between Manikaran and Bhuntar in Himachal Pradesh.

Kasol has always been a destination for the weed lovers who want to enjoy their time in the midst of marijuana offered by nature. Often referred to as the Smoker’s Paradise or Stoner’s Paradise, The adventure filled Kasol has a lot to offer other than just Cannabis.

First day, we did camping at Kasol Saanjh Camps. The best thing about this camp was its location. Its located near the river, in the midst of lush green trees. If you’re a nature lover and would love to have an unusual experience of living in a natural environment, you should definitely try this place out.

Day 2

We left for kheerganga trek at 6 am. Kheerganga is located deep in Parvati Valley (Kullu Valley) and is perched at an altitude of approximately 2950m.

We started trekking at around 9 am in the morning.

Initially, it was drizzling so we bought raincoats from the cafe located just near the point from where the trek starts. It started with drizzle and ended up in rain. Although we trekked in rain but it was worth the pain.

The view one gets while trekking is breath taking. If you love adventure, you should definitely go for this trek.

Day 3

We checked in at the Hotel Sandhya, Kasol. It is situated at a distance of 3 kilometres from the famous sulphur spring Manikaran and is hardly a 6-7 minutes walk from the main market of Kasol.

Since it is nested at a prime location, it makes an ideal accommodation choice for those who seek to explore the town.

Here are few photos from my exploration of the town.

(Don’t wear flats or bellies while you’re out there to explore)
