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.
