5 Things Every Backpacker Must Do In Kasol

Planning a trip ‘high’ up in the Himalayas? Then Kasol must be a check mark on your back packing road map! Located along the Parvati valley, this tranquil place, also know at the Little Israel or Stonner’s Paradise, will be the perfect get away from your hectic, fast life.

Here are 5 Things You Must Do In Kasol:

1. Gorge On Authentic Israeli Food

Stone Garden Café and Evergreen are absolute must visits. The Falafel, Hummus with Zatar Naan and Chicken Lafa are to get high for! Oops.. we meant die for.

2. Visit Manikaran Sahib Gurudwara

Located about 6 km from Kasol, it is known for the ‘Langar’ and hot water springs. The water in the springs is so hot that the rice for the langar is cooked by placing linen bags in the hot water. While you are there, don’t forget to take a dip and wash away all your sins (you know what we’re talking about)! This place is visited by Hindus and Sikhs and has a lot of temples, including a Gurudwara.

Approximate Distances from:
Kullu-Manali Airport at Bhuntar: 37 km
Kullu town: 45 km
Manali town: 85 km

3. Take A hike!

Malana, Kheer Ganga, Tosh, Rashol, to name a few, are just a few hours away on foot. An overnight trip to one of these locations is a must! You can safely leave behind your bags with the hotel that you were staying at in Kasol, incase you don’t want to carry too much of a load while trekking up.

4. Mingle with the locals

The locals are extremely warm and helpful, with some interesting stories. Learn their customs and cultures and come back enlightened.

5. Spend A Day By The River

Take a walk on the white sand and smooth boulders along the raging Parvati river. Don’t miss the sounds of the gurgling water, they say it speaks to you.
