Kasol is famous place for Marijuana and you need to stay away from all the hippies who are there in huge numbers all throughout the year. No prizes for guessing ! It is cheaply available.

You can even enjoy hot springs at ‘Manikaran Gurdwara’ which is about 15 minutes walking distance from Kasol and do try the tasty “Langar” at the Gurudwara. KheerGanga (hot springs)is the best place for a hot bath after a day’s hike in the woods. Options of staying at KheerGanga for a night or two are definetly there. Soup, tea, noodles or a proper meal will keep you warm.
