The month of love, hope and friendships. What could be better than experiencing all of them together in a place that will bind them together, forever!
Kasol boasts of being a serene place to lose the former you and explore the new YOU! The town is great, but what is better is its nearby treks. If you haven’t been a part of one of those, you have lost an experience of a lifetime. A secluded area where the treks head to, with nothing for company besides the great sheet of twinkling stars and the most pleasant climate, is a treat to the eyes.
