Once you start trekking through, you would have an unforgettable experience ever, whether crossing the wrecked bridge across the Parvati River or those dark forest roads or some irregular platforms. Animal screeches, smoky murky path, unusual plantations, etc. are common affairs while you walk through the woods. And again the silence is so pure that even the poise water run seems to be like a noisy torrent echoing within the valley would leave you speechless.

Kasol is famous for pot-culture and such hippie lifestyle makes it even more adventurous with bunch of enthusiastic travellers. Even if you don’t booze, such cultures and environment won’t be a disappointment to you. Hot tea and two minute noodles are must haves at every food junctions there. Further, Kasol is subdivided into two smaller villages; Chhalal and Bhuntar which you have to anyways cross while you trek down the valley. Elite sophisticated hotels are not any option but small huts or may be guest houses are available for shelters with all the necessary amenities you might need. People there will welcome you with all the hospitality and treat you as a part of their family till you are staying there. You would never burden your pockets when it comes to such trips, one of the major reasons being, those villages are not ruined by commercialism yet and unhealthy price hikes.


With all other trekking experiences when you are ready to bid goodbye to the wonderful hill station, it would definitely be one hard held moment for you. Those tall pine trees, those irregular snowflakes distributed randomly all around and the unusual prevalence’s would pass-by abandoning you with some lifetime remembrances.
