It is also called the backpacker’s heaven. The pleasant weather and cheap hash attract back packers and junkies who mostly hail from Israel and the European countries. Most of these are people who served in the armed forces in their native lands for a statutory period of time.The weather in Kasol though pleasant is a bag full of surprises. So much so that even natives find it hard to predict. What starts out as a chilly morning turns to a warm and sunny day to a windy and cold night.
