  • 08Trek to Kheer Ganga

    The trek to this vast blanket of emerald green hills is a challenging yet fun, nine kilometer, four hour climb on narrow and tricky trails, therefore it is not for the faint of heart. Although it is tricky in many aspects, it still stands to be one of the easiest treks to do in Kasol and one of the most daring things to do in Kasol as well. Kheer Ganga lies towards the extreme end of Parvati valley, and for a most part of the year, this place will be covered in snow and sparsely covered in other months, still making for a slippery cover and trail for anyone walking or trekking here.

    This hill is a magical haven for hippies from all over the world and over the past few years has successfully got in Indians to visit its soil. Once you reach the top of the Kheer Ganga, you will find yourself in the beautiful company of magical clouds, dense and moist due to the weather, pine and apple trees right out of fairy tales and snow-capped mountains that give an almost mesmerizing look to the sky. For the more religious and the fascinated by India folk, there is a beautiful and mystical temple of Lord Siva with hot spring baths here for you to see and enjoy.

    Kasol is the best idea for a holiday where you don’t need to do much, simply sit back, relax and let the mountains, pine trees, good food and amazing folk of the place transport you to a whole different world where there is the sound of music in the air from Mother Nature and get a chance to do the exciting things to do in Kasol that have made tourists flock towards the place in excited anticipation. 

  • 09Visit Manikaran Sahib

    Situated at a distance of about 6 kms from Kasol, Manikaran Sahib is a Gurudwara situated right in the middle of the scourging River Beas. It doesn’t matter what religion you are, this is a definite thing to do in Kasol on your trip there. You can take a dip in the hot springs located by the Gurudwara as it is believed to wash away all sins and wrongdoings, according to the locals.

    Although the Gurudwara is currently under renovation due to a natural disaster striking its architecture, it is a must visit if you are in Kasol. The ‘Langar’ in this Gurudwara is definitely worth the time you will spend here as it is simply delicious and cooked within the four walls of the holy place. 

  • 10Walk along the Parvati River

    Walk along the Parvati River

    Unlike the loud and voracious water of the Beas River, the Parvati River gives you a mesmerizing view of the lovely Parvati Valley and the neighbouring forests on both sides, with pine trees towering high above them. During the monsoon seasons, the waters here lead to a steep gradient from where the water gushes rapidly to form rapids that would send any avid rafter and water sports enthusiast running for his kayak.

    To get through to the other side of the river, you need to cross a rickety old wooden bridge, which in itself is a thrill of sorts. Enjoy the sights of this beautiful aquatic pride of Himachal Pradesh as you relax on one of the high boulders on the banks of the river and simply take in the views. 

  • 11Head out to Tosh and Malana

    Head out to Tosh and Malana

    The smaller version of Kasol, Tosh is a quaint and small locality with a population of a mere 700 people.

    The other amazing place, Malana is a village few have ventured to, but many have dared to see as well. This is because the place is believed to house descendants of Alexander the Great himself and of course, the world renowned Malana Cream. A 5-6 hours of trekking from Kasol will take you to this quaint and beautiful village and make you fall in love with anything and everything that it is known for, from its landscapes to the people, although reviews have suggested you shouldn’t get too comfortable there, it is still a wonderful place to visit on your way from Kasol.
