Another trekking adventure that leads from Kasol is to the secretive village of Malana. The small village in the Himalayas is situated amidst the towering giants of Chanderkhani and Deo Tibba, and is famous for various reasons, the prime one being the self-isolation of the people of the village.

This place is well-known in the world for the crazy trance and PSYtrance parties that happen here from time to time.

The region built around a cluster of natural hot springs, Manikaran is of great religious significance to the Sikhs and Hindus. The Manikaran Sahib Gurudwara is said to belong to the era of the founder of the Belief, the first religious leader of the Sikhs, Guru Nanak. He is believed to have come here with a disciple, and to cook their food for a public kitchen called ‘Langar’, he asked the disciple to remove a stone. From under the stone came a hot spring, which still resides in Manikaran Sahib and is considered very sacred. People from all over come to cook the offerings to their God in these springs before consuming, and even take a dip in these waters to wash off their sins. The piety of this place is of the utmost level for the believers of Sikhs.

Another legend relates the place with the Hindu Gods, Vishnu, and Parvati. Parvati lost a gem or ‘Mani’ in the torrential waters below, and the story that followed gave this place its name, Manikaran. Also, it is believed that Lord Shiva’s legendary anger is what gave birth to the hot springs in the area. With many temples dotting the place all over, Manikaran is a must visit, especially because it falls on the way to Kullu and Manali.

Sri Guru Nanak Devji Gurudwara is one of the must-visit tourist places in Kullu. It is located near the hot springs at Manikaran and is a sacred place for Sikhs and Hindus.

 The hot springs and the beautiful temple will definitely give you the best feeling. Like all the other gurudwaras, the place is clean and maintained very well by the internal staff. The holy place was designed back in the 16th century when Guru Nanak visited Manikaran. Legend says that his disciples were very hungry.

They did not find any food to eat. Guru Nanak sent one disciple to the community kitchen to find something to eat. The locals gave them flour to make flatbread but there was no fire or hot water.
Guru Nanak told his disciple to lift a rock.
 When the disciple complied, lifted the stone, a hot spring automatically appeared. The disciples cooked their food using the heat of the spring. Since then, this area has showered every visitor with blessings.

No physical fire is used to cook the rice and curry provided at this place. The geothermal heat is enough to cook food here.

About this trip, firstly Kasol is a very beautiful place and the camp we were staying at is located Riverside, a very beautiful location and the hosts are lovely ppl, very friendly, camp in Kasol. They've taken us on Trek to Chalal .... This is a trek trail that goes along the river up to the village of Chalal. And next day was the Kasol trek. It is the beautiful trek that I've experienced till now ( not that I've climbed many mountains and hills). It was covered all over with snow. The views were amazing.. We had a guide trekker who took us on the trek. Overall it was a wonderful experience!!! Thanks to Thrillophilia, sincerely!!!!

Highly satisfied with my maiden camping experience at HIM CAFE.. Realy awe-inspiring views around the camp. Decent food to get in a hilly terrain. Pawan-caretaker is too friendly and caring. Tents were clean and safe.. Day 1: Reached the camp by 2.00 pm checked in the tent. Started trek to Tosh village after a Powernap at the tent. Tosh village is too beautiful that it couldnt be penned down. Wittnessed aome melting snow while sunset which is an imsane experience. You can enjoy at cafes at Tosh before your way bck to the camp. Had dinner. Enjoyed Bonfire. Day2: If you are trekker then use this day for an early morning trek to a stunning water falls which is little above the Tosh village. Come back for a sun kissed breakfast. I had Kheerganga in my list so i started to Barshaini which is the starting point of the Kheer ganga trek. So its ideal to stay at Tosh before/after a trek to kheerganga. Amenities at camp: Food Tents Cafe Kitchen Clean washrooms And what not amazing sceneries around. An amazing one day backpacking experience which could carry lot of insane memories. Happy Trekking..
"The agent Ramesh Sharma was very very good, he was very genuine and helpful and polite.. He helped us keep our luggage safely. The trek is definitely great but our guide was not so helpful but the trail was itself leading to the destination. Our guide left us on our way down and was not seen thereafter.. The lodging and food on kheerganga was quite good. The guide was giving us a twin share small tent but that could be easily wet if it rained, so we asked him to provide us a bigger tent and he did.. Kheerganga is astoundingly beautiful. Must visit.. "

We were a group of 7 people and we decided to take this adventure trip. We were really happy with the locations, camps, and the people we met there. The only issue we faced was that the camp owners try to fit in more and more people in a single camp. Apart from that, the place was very scenic and engrossing with the river flowing on one side. We were lucky that we witnessed snowfall there. Our trek to kheerganga got canceled due to snowfall but they took us to a trek of Grahan Village which was equally beautiful. This would be your lifetime experience, walking on snow covered paths, drinking water from the natural streams, holding the hot cup of tea and sharing a common washroom. We got a great guide as well to help and cheer us throughout the trek. Overall, it was a tour with a lot of memories and fewer expenses. So, yeah definitely go for it.

Ana amazing trek for all trekkers. We came across normal trails, snow trails (which was quite amazing and dangerous just because of black slippery ice). Overall, the trek is simply amazing and the desitnation (Kheerganga) is just speechless. Full of snow makes it more beautiful.
