How to Reach Kasol??
The way to reach to this Himalayan Town is by road. It is not connected with raialway and the nearest airport is at bhuntar, which is about 30KM form the kasol. I would not suggest you to travel through flight because flights are very limited and fares are costly. The best way to explore this region of Himalayas is to travel through the busses. You can easily get busses from Chandigarh or Delhi. Now HRTC (Himachal Roadways Transport Corporation)-Life Line of Himachal Pradesh has extended its services and provides ordinary to luxury busses to the passengers. I personally prefer HRTC over any other bus providers. All these busses goes to Manali Via Kullu, you need to get down at buntar and can easily find a cab to kasol Or if you are on a tight budget you can travel in the local buses .
