Introduction
One of the most well hidden and well known places in Himachal Pradesh, Kasol is what they call a 'Stoners Paradise'. The place is situated in the Parvati Valley with the river Parvati flowing right beside. Kasol is a small tourist village mostly inhabited by local Himachalis and tourists from around the world. This is a trending destination for many youngsters who are tired of cities as well as hilly destinations as they are also having consistent tourists. So, the travelers who search for something offbeat, Kasol is the right trip for them.... More
When should you take this
Although Kasol experiences good weather throughout the year, the ideal time to explore the wilderness of the place is from March to May. At this time of the year, the weather is pleasant and the temperature varies from 15 - 22 degrees Celsius. However, if you are fond of strolling in chilly nights and cool evening winds, winters i.e. from October to February is the right season for you. ... More
Things you should know
You can do camping in hills and that too quite cheap.
Kasol is the best place for solo travelers. Try and talk to as many people as you can, you will meet many solo travelers there, plan for at least 4 day visit.
Carry A Journal : Document every interesting thing that happens to you.
Carry A Torch : Kasol get’s really dark at night and has absolutely no street lights, making it difficult to move around the village later at night specially when it’s raining and cloudy.
Carry an umbrella : Carrying an umbrella or a raincoat could be a master-move if you are planning to trek, since rain has a very unpredictable scene in parvati valley.
Staying in Parvati Valley is not an issue, I usually prefer staying at The Hosteller which is the only backpacker’s hostel in kasol.
Always carry hard cash with you. Kasol has only one ATM and it can be unreliable at best. The next closest ATM is in Manikaren, which is 4 km away.

Kasol has many cheap, decent quality hotels and guest houses from where you can choose. The views are as gratifying as the price. They cannot be booke online and hence have to be booked in person and there is no scarcity of rooms ever because kasol has not emerged as a tourist destination of sorts in generic sense. It’s a trending destination which has the greatest perks of bein peaceful and cheap. Hence, accommodation is not at all a problem here unlike many other hill stations in northern India where you have to book prior.... More
