Gurudwara Sahib Manikaran

Malana is beautiful small village, famous for Malana cream. To reach Malana village there is beautiful narrow, trek from Malana town. Trek is about 2km. Which will take around 1hr. Once you reach the village you will have to cross the entire village to reach 🏕 camping area.
Malana trek is preferred to be done in day light. One is to witness the breathtaking view of mountain ranges and 2nd as the path way to reach camps is narrow and muddy, rains ☔️will make it slippery too. If you are planning for night stay at camp in Malana then you can trek anytime during the day. One day trip can also be done, But in that case it is preferred to start early in morning. In my recommendation you should stay there one night to get real vibes of place.

Mountain range visible from Malana are peaks of the Deo Tibba and Chanderkhani which is most beautiful view.
Malana is a unique place in terms of its culture and history. Malana is one of the oldest democracy in the world. One rule which you should know before entering this village is “Do not touch anyone or any of there belongings in Malana village”

Chalal village is very small, But it has few amazing cafes on its trek. Specifically if you start your trek from katagla. I went to all different areas in Kasol, But chalal village trek was something that i loved the MOST. Mostly because of the landscapes and surrounding. Lush green almost everywhere.The higher you climb, magnificent is the view. Small farms and apple orchards are breath taking.
