A quaint hamlet in the serene Kullu District of Himachal Pradesh, Kasol is a picturesque village that has gained mass popularity in the recent years. This undisturbed and pretty as a picture destination has quickly emerged as a hub for backpackers, trekkers and budget travellers and is on almost every explorer’s checklist. Bestowed with rich natural bounty, Kasol portrays nature at its best.
Tucked away in one of the most accessible of locations in Himachal, Kasol is famous among the Indians as the hub for young travellers from Israel. Once in Kasol, you’d be surprised to see the Israelis living in perfect harmony with the locals. Also surprising is the fact that the natives have accepted them as their own, rented them their places and has put up cafes and restaurants dedicated wholly to Israeli cuisine. This is something we don’t usually get to see in the rest of the country.
Bhuntar, the nearest airport to Kasol is at a distance of 42 km. The road from Bhuntar to Kasol is as quiet and as tranquil as the place itself, i.e. a true delight for the mind and the deprived soul.
