  • Trip introduction

You’ll have a fairly steep climb, but at the top, you’ll be rewarded with views of scenic valleys, gushing rivers and snow-capped peaks. You’ll get to cross the fast-flowing blue Parvati river, cross green sloping fields, and walk through quaint hamlets, as well as and open landscapes and forests of Rhododendron trees. On reaching Rasol pass, one can glimpse unhindered views of Malana village, Chandrakhani pass and some untouched high peak ranges.

    IMPORTANT: To book this trip, you need a minimum of 4 persons.

    Destination

    Kasol used to be a small village in Himachal Pradesh, located on the banks of the Parvati river, at an altitude of 5000 feet. It is a hotspot for backpackers, hippies and adventure seekers, and is the gateway to treks to Sar Pass, Yanker Pass and Rasol Pass. It’s also become known as Little Israel, thanks to the hordes of Israeli travellers coming here seeking peace, serenity and mountain views. You can expect some great Israeli food here.

  • Day 1: Kasol to Rasol trek

    You will meet your trek leader at a designated spot in Kasol village to begin your day long trek to Rasol. This trek is 14 kms long and will take 5-6 hours to complete. From Kasol village, the trek passes through green sloping fields before leading through wild forests of pine and deodar that are home to rare species of Himalayan birds.

    On the way, you will stop for a light lunch under the shade of the many trees that provide the perfect resting place. The trek onward is steep till the top but the breathtaking surroundings will keep you engaged and make the effort well worth it. The view from the top will make all your fatigue fade away as you spot Malana village and Chandrakhani pass in the distance, nestled between the misty, virgin peaks. Take your time to breathe in this view and make it your own. Bring out your cameras to capture memories to last you a lifetime before heading back down the same way to reach Kasol village. The trek ends once you reach Kasol village.
