Things to do

We invite you to make this your home for a few days. Relax, meditate, read, write, paint, photograph, walk through forest trails or just sit on a boulder and watch the river gush by. Soak in the beauty of nature, go back with memories and more.

Nature Walks: A walk by the river Parvati can be very invigorating. Every bend presents new scenery; sheer delight for photographers.

On the right bank across the river from Kasol are mule tracks to follow into the forest. Another walk is by the Grahn Nala that divides the village into old and new Kasol. Here the river is calmer and a quiet dark forest awaits you as you walk up deeper into the woods. Popular excursions are visits to nearby villages of Chalaal, Choj, Goj and Manikaran.

Trout Fishing: You can take a licence and fish for trout in Grahn Nala that passes through Kasol and in the Parvati River when the water is clear and less turbulent,

Gadsa Valley, which is a short trip by road, is another popular site.

River Rafting and Adventure sports: For river rafting drive down to Bhuntar,Shamsi and various other spots along the right bank of Beas river.Solang valley near Manali is popular for Paragliding and Zorbing.

Trekking: Kasol is a gateway to hiking trails. Seasoned trekkers enjoy the hike upto Kheerganga, Rudra Nag, Man Talai and Pin Parvati pass that connects to Spiti.

New enthusiasts can take shorter treks to Malana,Rasol, Grahn and Pulga

Sighseeing and historical places: Stationed at Kasol one can visit several places around.

Manikaran – where Lord Shiva in order to recover the lost ‘Manis’ (jewels) of consort Parvati, that fell into the river; divined a geyser to erupt from the river, which threw up the ‘manis’. So goes the legend and ever since the hot boiling water has been erupting alongside the ice-cold water of the Parvati River. There are temples of Lord Shiva, Raghunathji and various other deities in this town.

In the late sixties a Gurudwara was also built since the 1st Guru of the Sikhs,Guru Nanak had visited Manikaran during his sojourns. The Sikh religious fervor has allowed the Gurudwara to grow massively with ever increasing religious following.

Naggar – Naggar is just 2 hours drive en-route to Manali.Visit this pretty hill station to see the Roerich Museum and the famous Naggar Castle, the original seat of Kullu Rajas.

Bijli Mahadev – is a legendry Shiva temple set on scenic meadows on top of an 8500ft high hill,that looks down on the confluence of Beas and Parvati rivers. A diversion from Ram Shila bridge in Kullu leads you to the base from where you have to trek.

Bajaura -near Bhuntar has the 9thcentury Bishweshwara temple, a protected monument.
