Kasol is a village situated on the banks of the Parvati river, at a height of 1,640 m. It offers good weather almost throughout the year, a scenic view of the valley and untouched hills. It is also a base for many treks nearby and has earned itself the moniker of Himachal Pradesh’s ‘mini-Israel’, as many Israelis come here every year on vacation after their mandatory military training. Proof of this point is in the fact that almost all signage in Kasol is in Hindi as well as Hebrew.

Things to see and do
Kasol is the laid-back base from which several close-by sites can be visited. What begins as a two-day weekend may just end up being a relaxing long week spent here; such is the charm of this tiny hamlet.

Manikaran
Located 5 km away from Kasol, this lovely village offers a maze of small streets, lined with wooden houses and colourful facades. It is a pilgrimage centre for both Hindus and Sikhs and the hot spring inside the Manikaran Sahib Gurudwara is considered auspicious. The gurdwara itself is a huge, impressive structure located on the bank of the river, with colourful flags everywhere and a constant crowd. The structure was built to commemorate Guru Nanak Dev’s visit to Manikaran.

The aforementioned hot spring is claimed by residents of the village (with some pride) to have curative powers and is so hot that rice can be cooked in it! Also in town are shrines dedicated to Krishna, Rama and Vishnu.

Sar Pass Trek
This trek starts from Kasol and is composed of six villages: Grahan, Padri, Ratapani, Nagaru, Biskeri and Bhandak Thatch. The path leads through a lush green forest, with beautiful waterfalls on the way. The vegetation is dense and various birds can be spotted or heard along the way.

Kheer Ganga
To start this hike, you first need to take a local bus or a motorcycle till Barshaini. From there, it is an 12-km walk till Kheer Ganga, a trek that is at once physically challenging and refreshing. After the climb, you are rewarded with the opportunity to bathe in the hot spring, which is accessible from the end of April to the end of October every year. You can also camp here. Carry a torch, as there is no electricity in Kheer Ganga.

Tosh
Tosh is a village of much scenic beauty, and is ideal for meditation, peace and solitude. The locals are mostly farmers who cultivate apples and hashish, the main source of income here. The temple of Jamdagni Rishi at the centre of the village is on the banks of Tosh Nallah.

From Barshaini, you can go through Kalga, a steep uphill climb lasting about 20 minutes, or Pulga (30-40 minutes). It takes 1 hours from Pulga to Tosh.
