To The Land Of Hippies: Kasol!
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”― Mark Twain
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experiences to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences.
Say goodbye to your comfort zones, with nothing but your backpack filled with essentials, it is time to venture out to the Hippy land- Kasol! Stretched along the lovely Parvati River with mountains rising all around, Kasol (Himachal Pradesh) has been a main traveller hang-out for ages!
What you'll be doing?
Accompanied by the gurgling of Parvati river, trek through the less travelled picturesque routes, embrace new cultures, explore the street side cafes serving scrumptious food, walk amidst the pine and apple trees, wonder watching the starry sky from the lap of mountains, you will find that even time would slow down!
It is time to be on the move. To define your life with experiences! Celebrate life. With the ultimate vagabond experience!
