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

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 in Kasol, 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.

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

Hey hi! I'm Divya. This was my experience with Thrillophilia and it was amazing. They've responded always whenever I needed them. About this trip, firstly Kasol is a very beautiful place and the camp we were staying at is located Riverside, a very beautiful location and the hosts are lovely ppl, very friendly, camp in Kasol. They've taken us on Trek to Chalal .... This is a trek trail that goes along the river up to the village of Chalal. And next day was the Kasol trek. It is the beautiful trek that I've experienced till now ( not that I've climbed many mountains and hills). It was covered all over with snow. The views were amazing.. We had a guide trekker who took us on the trek. Overall it was a wonderful experience!!! Thanks to Thrillophilia, sincerely!!!!
"One of the experiences, which will always remain in my memories. Kheerganga is a trek which is beautiful, not so tough, tiring but the moment you reach the destination, you forget it all and you feel that you have reached a different realm altogether. I can still feel the fresh air hitting my face up there. anyone who can trek 4-5 hours continuously, please do not miss this place.\nand our trek guide is VICKY a very good person\n"

Highly satisfied with my maiden camping experience at HIM CAFE.. Realy awe-inspiring views around the camp. Decent food to get in a hilly terrain. Pawan-caretaker is too friendly and caring. Tents were clean and safe.. Day 1: Reached the camp by 2.00 pm checked in the tent. Started trek to Tosh village after a Powernap at the tent. Tosh village is too beautiful that it couldnt be penned down. Wittnessed aome melting snow while sunset which is an imsane experience. You can enjoy at cafes at Tosh before your way bck to the camp. Had dinner. Enjoyed Bonfire. Day2: If you are trekker then use this day for an early morning trek to a stunning water falls which is little above the Tosh village. Come back for a sun kissed breakfast. I had Kheerganga in my list so i started to Barshaini which is the starting point of the Kheer ganga trek. So its ideal to stay at Tosh before/after a trek to kheerganga. Amenities at camp: Food Tents Cafe Kitchen Clean washrooms And what not amazing sceneries around. An amazing one day backpacking experience which could carry lot of insane memories. Happy Trekking..
"The agent Ramesh Sharma was very very good, he was very genuine and helpful and polite.. He helped us keep our luggage safely. The trek is definitely great but our guide was not so helpful but the trail was itself leading to the destination. Our guide left us on our way down and was not seen thereafter.. The lodging and food on kheerganga was quite good. The guide was giving us a twin share small tent but that could be easily wet if it rained, so we asked him to provide us a bigger tent and he did.. Kheerganga is astoundingly beautiful. Must visit.. "

My first stay at iverside camps and it was amazing. The vibe here is different. You can do all the activities on the campsite. My stay was for a day but i extended it to 4 days just because of 2 friends i made at the camp - 4G(yashpal) and gajjubhai(gajender). The two most amazing, sweet, caring, and honest guys in kasol. They’ll help you with everything. Highly recommended

We were a group of 7 people and we decided to take this adventure trip. We were really happy with the locations, camps, and the people we met there. The only issue we faced was that the camp owners try to fit in more and more people in a single camp. Apart from that, the place was very scenic and engrossing with the river flowing on one side. We were lucky that we witnessed snowfall there. Our trek to kheerganga got canceled due to snowfall but they took us to a trek of Grahan Village which was equally beautiful. This would be your lifetime experience, walking on snow covered paths, drinking water from the natural streams, holding the hot cup of tea and sharing a common washroom. We got a great guide as well to help and cheer us throughout the trek. Overall, it was a tour with a lot of memories and fewer expenses. So, yeah definitely go for it.

Ana amazing trek for all trekkers. We came across normal trails, snow trails (which was quite amazing and dangerous just because of black slippery ice). Overall, the trek is simply amazing and the desitnation (Kheerganga) is just speechless. Full of snow makes it more beautiful.
