In the last few years, Kasol has seen a sudden influx of tourists, from India and abroad. The quaint Himachal hill-station has now become popular as the land of ‘happy high’. It also serves as the base for many interesting treks including the breathtaking Kheerganga. Amidst the towering Himalayan mountains, the untamed Parvati river, the abundant growth of a certain plant and the rave parties, there is one aspect of Kasol that is often overlooked. It is the interesting cuisine this place has to offer.

Kasol is dotted with budget friendly cafes that serve some of the most amazing Israeli dishes, apart from equally enticing continental platters and desserts. Add to that a bunch of German bakeries that sell freshly baked bread rolls, croissants and cookies. Here are some of my favourite dishes and the places where I tried them.
