  • The best time to visit Kasol is during the summer season when a mix of greenery and floral colors bathe everything. When the fast-paced city life drains out your spirits, turn to the little Israeli settlement of Kasol for a dose of adventure and thrill. Unfolding along the lush banks of river Parvati, Kasol is one of the hottest travel destinations amongst backpackers and trekkers from across the world!

    Highlighted by lovely cafes, a number of thrilling treks, and the roaring Parvati river, Kasol offers the possibility of spiritual transcendence to all visitors, irrespective of age. The trails are covered by a blanket of lush greenery in the summer and monsoon, and allow frequent glimpses of the mesmerizing mountains and valleys, both within one and otherwise. Winters paint the village a breathtaking white, but despite the chilly weather, the radiant affection in the hearts of the natives is enough to keep you warm.

    Here are the best seasons to visit Kasol:

  • 01Kasol in Winter

    Kasol in Winter

    If you wish to catch Kasol in the midst of its splendor, winter is the best time to travel there. Starting from the month of October up to the end of February, winters in Kasol turn everything into a beautiful fairytale- something right out of a movie. Given the high altitude that Kasol is perched upon i.e., 1,580 above sea level, Kasol experiences harsh, but beautiful winters. The proper winter doesn’t set in until November, when the temperatures plummet to around 3 degrees Celsius. Winter is also the best time to explore and enjoy Kasol at its fullest, especially when the cities aren’t cold enough for you.

    Along with the surreal, natural beauty, winters bring along extremely chilly temperatures and a thick blanket of snow to cover everything. If you like untouched places and solitude, winter is your best bet when visiting Kasol. Snow-laden trails, chilly air, and the gracious winter sun make for an unbeatable combination. Although the roads carry heavy accumulation of snow, it is a beautiful sight to behold, especially with a panorama of snowy peaks plastered across the skyline! Wrap yourself in multiple warm layers, relax outside with a steaming mug of tea while warming yourself up by a campfire!

    Places to visit:

    If you consider yourself a trekking enthusiast or a nature lover, Kheerganga is your go-to trek. If, however, you prefer solitude and the lesser-trodden paths, extend your Kheerganga trek by heading to the hidden gem called Buni-Buni Pass. The place receives ample sunlight during the day, battling away the cold for a while. The hot-springs at Kheerganga are a welcome change from the frigid cold weather of Kasol, and they are also believed to possess some medicinal and healing properties. Take a refreshing dip in the waters of the spring, and feel the fatigue leave you in seconds!

    Other areas to explore are Pin Parvati Pass and Sar Pass, which might be shut due to heavy accumulation of snow. If trekking is not your calling, take short hikes to Tosh, Chalal, Manikaran, and Malana, which are some of the most rustic places near Kasol, which is a bit more commercialized. Known for their iconic cafes like Boom Shiva Cafe and Pink Floyd Cafe, which are beautiful places to relax in and meet like-minded travelers, although not many can be found there.

    Average temperature:

    During winters, temperatures hit 5 to 10 degrees Celsius in the day time, and can fall to as low as 0 degree Celsius at night

  • 02Kasol in Summer

    Kasol in Summer

    If you want to experience Kasol in all its glory, then summer is probably the perfect time to visit Kasol. Summer sets in from the month of March and lasts till the end of June. While the months of March and April bring a slight chill in the air, the true summer begins from May. With the average temperature ranging from 15 to 35 degrees Celsius, the weather is mild and pleasant, as opposed to the extremities of winter.

    Besides that, there’s a carpet of lush greenery as far as the eyes can see, while the floral beauty of Kasol is in full bloom. Shades of reds, blues and whites paint a stunning picture for the eyes. The warmth of sunlight is a beautiful feeling, and on a clear day, plenty of snow-clad peaks treat the senses. Clear skies also mean stargazing at nighttime- a breathtaking experience. Summers also let you visit places that might have been inaccessible in winters due to heavy accumulation of snow.

    Places to visit:

    Make sure to pay a visit to the neighboring villages of Tosh and Malana, both of which are considerably less explored than Kasol. If you’re seeking offbeat trails and adventures, these are the places to head to. The cafes there are also bustling with travelers during this season, which means a series of great, lively conversations await you! Explore the Israeli lifestyle and cuisine of the place with a number of like-minded travel buddies. Boom Shiva Cafe and Pink Floyd Cafe are two all-time-favorites amongst backpackers.

    Another great destination that attracts a variety of visitors every year is Manikaran. Best known for the Gurudwara Sri Manikaran Sahib and the neighboring hot springs, Manikaran is at a distance of barely 5 km, and you can easily walk there. The hiking trails in and around Kasol take a colorful turn in the summers, quite literally. When in Kasol, a trek to Parvati Valley or just along the river Parvati is almost obligatory.

    Besides, hiking, you can also be a part of the famous music festivals that Kasol hosts during the summer months. Countless rave parties along with psychedelic music, surrounded by valleys and mountains- if that’s your calling. If not, head to the quieter places nearby. Whatever you’re craving for, Kasol will exceed all your expectations.

    Average temperature:

    During the daytime, the average temperature falls somewhere between 22 to 30 degrees Celsius, while at night, it dips to around 15-20 degrees Celsius.

  • 03Kasol in Monsoon

    Kasol in Monsoon

    Monsoons in Kasol start from the month of July and last up to September. With temperatures ranging between 18 to 27 degree Celsius, Monsoon is a bad time to visit Kasol, given the erratic weather conditions and the heavy rainfall. It is best to avoid the place during this season altogether, owing to the numerous risks and dangers that it entails. It is prone to sudden landslides, roadblocks, cloudbursts, and floods, making it a very risky ordeal.

    The rainfall is very heavy in this area, giving way to potential flash floods. Traveling along the mountain roads is a threat that is not worth taking if you value your life. There bouts of natural calamities that haunt the places near Kasol almost every year. While it might sound romantic- being amidst the valleys, surrounded by mountains, with a heavy downpour- it is not. At this time, the hotels in Kasol might be offering a generous deal with heavy discounts, considering it is the off-season. But it is unwise to visit Kasol in monsoons, lured only by the deals.

    Average temperature:

    The temperature ranges from 20 to 27 degrees Celsius in the daytime, and falls to around 15 degrees Celsius in the night
