10 experiences at Yolo camping
Yolo camp located 8 kms from Kasol is a great place to unwind and relax. This place is located inside the Malana gate and will take you closer to nature and help you find peace. Here are 10 experiences to feel at Yolo camping site.
1. Experience the snow melted glacier water-
The trail leading to Yolo camp runs parallel to the River Parvati. The cafe and tents are right opposite the river. One can go near the river and dip their feet in the ice-cold water, that has just melted a few hours ago from the snow-capped mountains near Mantalai. Although cold, it is packed with minerals and vitamins.
2. Experience butterflies
The campsite is filled with greenery and a thousand shades of green. Wildflowers grow here in abundance, making it a home to colourful butterflies. These add to the scenic beauty.
3. Experience waking up to the chirping of birds-
The Yolo camping site is located away from all the chaotic touristy places. One can wake up listening to the chirping of birds. It is also an amazing place for a bird lover as one can spot different exotic birds mostly seen in textbooks.
4. Stroll through Apple, Plum and Peach trees-
The campsite is filled with plenty of apples, plum and peach trees. When in season, one could see bright red apples and other fruits growing on the trees. During the spring months, these trees have blossoms that look similar to cherry blossoms. Since it’s located at Malana, one can spot wild weed growing along the way.
5. Experience the people of Malana-
The culture of people across Himachal is quite interesting. They lead simple lives, are hard-working and stay content. It is easier to strike a conversation with the locals and share conversations as they are quite friendly. Enjoy the countryside feel.
6. Experience mountains and peace-
Tired with the chaos and hectic life of the city, take a break and absorb all the peace that the mountains have to offer. With glittering snow-capped mountains to the gushing Parvati River, camping around apple trees and birds chirping all day is a wonder. Camping at Yolo, let nature’s energy flow into you and relax in the magical Parvati Valley.
7. Experience waking up to the river-
Water bodies are said to have a soothing effect on one’s mind. There is a hydro-power located right opposite on the other side of the river which has a huge stream of water gushing twice a day. With all the water force and pressure, it may look similar to a tiny milky waterfall.
8. Experience camping-
One can camp near the river in a Swiss tent or choose to take an Alpine tent. Both types of tents offer a spectacular view of the valley. The tents are furnished with comfortable beds, bed sheets and quilts. Snuggle up on a cold night in awe of the view.
9. Experience tasty food and meals along the river-
The Yolo cafe serves delicious food and snacks throughout the day. Opt for local food and try Rajmah Chawal with Basmati Rice. A food junkie can hog on fried food like French fries, cheese potato balls, chicken nuggets. Also good chai for all chai lovers.
10. Experience trekking-
Himachal Pradesh probably has the toughest and uncertain terrain but the beauty is in exploring the range on foot. Yolo camping provides you with guided treks in and around Parvati valley.
Pack your bags and head to Yolo camping, next time you are in Parvati Valley.
