A tiny township nestling in the lower Himalayan hills, Kasol is on the travel bucket list of every Indian youth and foreign national for sure. And why wouldn’t it be! This quaint, cozy place has so many experiences to offer – you can pick and choose which pleasures you want to indulge in!
When I visit places like Kasol, what excites me most is the promise of good weather and rustic countryside. There are so many things to look forward to but the chilly breeze and homely ambience is what I love the most.
A major reason why people love Kasol is its liberal culture and relaxed lifestyle. No one cares what you’re up to here and you can unwind without inhibitions in whatever way you enjoy. Looking for best things to do in Kasol? Or places to visit in Kasol?
You can go trekking, biking and enjoy some adventure sports or simply explore the many little cafes here. You can shop at the local market and pick up some really unique souvenirs too. And if nothing else, you can revel in the tranquil bliss of doing nothing and escaping hectic city life.
I would recommend everyone to visit Kasol at least once, even if it’s just a 2-day visit – it’ll be a memorable holiday for sure!
Read in detail our experience of being in Kasol and what’s in store for rebels and unconventional folks in the hippie backpackers’ town that is marked for its rustic charm and brazen attitude.
There’s nothing as refreshing as a long walk along the gorgeous Parvati River. While Kasol is famous for its wild parties and booze, there are a lot of places to go in Kasol where you can wander for peaceful time. We loved strolling down the Kasol lanes with churning Parvati River bordering one side and pine trees the other.
Be careful and don’t cross waters on foot as the flow can get pretty forceful, thereby increasing the chances of slipping. Just stretch out your legs and sit on a smooth boulder to dip your feet in the tumbling blue-green water for calming your inner self.
Trust me if I say this, Shiva Mama Café was nothing like the cafes we go to in metropolis cities like Delhi. The psychedelic environment clubbed with good food and rocking music can make you a fan of this café. And the best part is the food is inexpensive and really tasty.
An amazing dessert that every traveler needs to indulge in while in Kasol is “Hello to the Queen” – a dish that heralds from Israel (though its origin is debatable). This lusciously succulent dessert is prepared with honey cookie crumbs, dollops of vanilla ice cream, marshmallows, hot Nutella custard, fresh bananas, raisins, and hot chocolate sauce.
A visit to Kasol is incomplete without trying the steaming hot momos served with red and white dips. You can have fried momos as well, but I love steamed momos.
Try some from the Momos Corner opposite the Moon Dance Café namely Shambu Momo Corner, which is quite famous in the area.
A plate with 10 momos – it’s actually quite filling. Oh! And the aroma! You can go on and on having momos without stopping. You might find people having their own liquor around this joint.
Hippie backpacker or not, you just can’t come to Kasol and go back home without buying a few cool hippie items. In fact, no list of things to do in Kasol would be complete without mention of the hippie markets in the township.
In the flea market, you’ll find everything psychedelic ranging from harems, hemp wristbands, caps, pullovers, to harems and bongs. Other than that, you can pick some gorgeous trinkets and semi-precious stones from Kasol market.
At astoundingly low prices, buy Bob Marley and Lord Shiva T-shirts which you can cherish for a lifetime. One tip, don’t forget to bargain.
5kms away from Kasol is the huge Gurudwara Manikaran Sahib tucked amidst magnificent hills and a fierce Beas.
Don’t miss out visiting this shrine for it is one of the holiest pilgrimage centers where one can find peace and eternal gratification. The gurudwara is most famous for its hot water springs, within its premises, wherein worshipers take a dip to get rid of their illnesses.
Just make sure you dress decently and cover your head completely before entering into the Gurudwara. Also, devour the Langar that is both tasty and wholesome.
People of all faiths and religions are welcome wholeheartedly in this shrine, and the message is quite clear as you can find pictures of gods of various religions here. Do add this to the list of places to visit in Kasol!
Other places to visit in Kasol or rather a few kilometers away from the township are Tosh, Malala, and Kheerganga. Out of these three, we opted to trek to Kheerganga as we were told that it is an amazing hamlet that is breathtakingly beautiful. And it definitely is! It is about four hours of the steep climb on tricky trails. Though it is an easy trek from Kasol, some might find it challenging.
If you are planning a visit to Himachal Pradesh, you must consult our blog posts!

You had me sold with that first image of Salvador Dali poking through the artistic walls. I love all the beautiful vistas you’ve shown! I would love to go camping there, too. Your photography includes such lush blues. Love it!
Happy to know that you loved the images. You should definitely visit Kasol for an amazing camping experience. 🙂
I’ve never heard of Kasol, but it sounds wonderful! I’m sure the cool breeze is a relief from the heat of much of the rest of India. I love that the area has a combination of cultural attractions and hiking opportunities. And the momos look great too!
Ah, Erika – you got to try Indian momos. With all those spices and chutney, you are going to crave for more all the time. And yes, Kasol is an awesome place to chill and relax while also indulging in hiking and walking.
What a cool place to visit! Seems very vibrant but also lots of outdoor adventures which is more our style. Although I would definitely have to visit the Hippie area as a right of passage ha ha…! Are momos the same as Chinese-style dumplings?
You’ve gathered some very interesting places. I would love to sit along the Parvati river. the water looks really clear! A walk around the pilgrimage place with hot springs sounds like a great experience as well!
I super love the vibe of this place! Very pretty and colorful. I soooo love bohemian things so I’m in love with those little products that they sell. Hope you had a great time there!
It seems that there are lots of stuffs to do in Kasol , at least it would be a great day trip if not more. I would love to take a walk around the river especially during sunrise and sunset as those times give the best colours in the sky and a great view of the place. Also, I am up for trekking. Seems like an adventurous task to do.
I have been to kasol, when I was on my trip to Manali, It is an amazing village of Himachal. I love the hippie culture over there. Had some hashish on my way back :p
Kasol seems to be the kind of place we would enjoy.It seems like there is so much to do in this rustic little town.Walking beside the Parvati river is something we would love doing!The way you describe it makes it sound like such a blissful experience.Your picture of that river is gorgeous!When we reach India, we’ll follow your advice and visit this town for sure!
Thanks a ton Nicholas â€“ so glad to hear you found it useful.
I have not been to Kasol. This might be a place to visit if I make it a trip to India. It looks like a hill station. Are you aware of the history of hill stations in India?
Kasol sounds like my kind of place! I’m always amazed at the diversity India offers. I was there for almost 2 months and I’m constantly learning about new places.
Can i just say first that you always look fabulous in your pictures? haha, even in the tent! Anyways, this place looks adorable. Although the dessert didn’t look too good, it sounded amazing. Fit for a queen I’m sure. I have a ton of friends who would love something from that market!
Kasol looks awesome and somewhere I’ve never been before. I love your pictures! The momos look SO TASTY. Thank you for sharing
The photos are really awesome. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks a ton 🙂
Wow! All the pictures are really amazing. So many beautiful things to see with perfect view of river and mountains. Have heard so much about Kheerganga trek and we would want to do that soon.
Hey Sandy â€“ so happy to hear you enjoyed reading our blog about things to do in Kasol. ðŸ™‚ Hope the two of you make it there soon ðŸ™‚
Your pictures collection is great, thanks for sharing information about Kasol. Would love to visit!
