Description

Malana is connected to Kullu by three mountain passes it can be reached from Parbati valley crossing over the 3180 metres rashol pass and via Naggar over the 3600 metres beautiful Chanderkhani pass. For the outsiders, there is a long list of do's and don'ts to be followed in the village. The people are friendly but outsiders are told to keep distance and not to touch anything in the village. Malana is divided into two upper malana (dhara beda) and lower malana (sor beda).

 

Below the Chanderkhani pass of the Kullu valley lies a small cluster of around two hundred stone roof houses constituting a village called Malana. Its inimitable culture and the temple of Jamlu distinguish the village. The village consists of around 1500 inhabitants and has an impeccable system of administration with a higher and lower court guided by the spirit of village god Jamlu. Malana stands out as an autonomous self-sufficient unit whose inhabitants claim Greek ancestry. Some stories about the village called "a little Greece," this village in the interior of the Himalayas is its architecture, language, worship rituals and autonomous administrative system. The unique geographical location of Malana has enabled it to preserve its biodiversity and it is an ecological haven.

Kasol is one of the most popular tourist destinations in our country and when I got to know that Escape2Explore has a package that includes this location, I immediately booked it. This is by far the best trek I have been to ever in my life. Since it is a Himalayan trek, the excitement for it was too high and the whole experience lived upto those expectations. It was my first time but the guys at Escape2Explore were super helpful and told us all the guidelines to be followed. They also guided us throughout the tour and helped us at all the times. We were provided with all the facilities one could expect in a trek. Camping near the Himalayas is a different experience altogether and those who haven’t tried it yet must do it for sure. I am planning to go on another Himalayan trek this year with my friends and will book that through Escape2Explore as well. more...
