Located about 14 hours away, Kasol is hilly hamlet inhabited by Himachalis and flocked by tourists from around the world. Upon arrival, head to The Himalayan Village located in the lap of Parvati Valley with deodar trees towering all around. Rooms here are uniquely named, after local Himachali villages. After checking in, you can set out to explore the ravishing valley and its waters, starting at the confluence of River Parvati and River Beas. Cross the bridge at Kasol and witness the coniferous forests flanking snow covered peaks as the river gushes on below. If time permits, walk on across the bridge to nearby villages like Chalal, Katagla and Rasol to explore the life of a highlander. At night, return to the hotel for a relaxing overnight stay.
Day Tour to Manikaran Sahib
Start your morning with a walk around the majestic Himalayan Village. The property was built in pure traditional & ancient Kathkunia style (dry stacking of stone & wood without cement) with mud plastered walls from within, deodar wood work, beautifully carved teak furniture, handmade silk curtains and brass fittings. You will spend the day visiting Manikaran Sahib – a holy place of worship for the Sikh community. Do cover your head when you enter the Gurudwara, tucked away between mountains and the fierce Beas. The hot springs located within the premises are known to have healing properties and devotees flock here from all over the world to take a holy dip. It is a fact that rice for the Langar (meal) is cooked in the waters of the hot springs. Later, return to the hotel for a relaxing overnight stay.

Built in Victorian Gothic Revival style and perched at an elevation of 2003 metres, The Himalayan is a Castle, set amidst apple and cherry orchards, overlooking resplendent snow capped mountain peaks and waterfalls plunging down rock faces.

In the evening, head out for a romantic experience. Nestled away in the glow of fairy lights and lanterns, your dinner table awaits you in a secluded spot in the orchards.
