Sad affair of Malana village

Is anyone from the Authorities reading this ?

It is sad to read the state of affairs in Kasol and Malana village. I had visited these places way back in 1982, 1983. It was quiet and isolated villages where hardly any body used to venture other than YHA trekkers. Villagers in Malana were very nice and friendly by nature, inspite of their unique village rules. However, they never had expressed their reservation about our touching them or picking up their children, though they were said to be observing untouchability even during that time. I remember there was a girl guide named 'Pusha' from the village who used to pickup our daily batch of trekkers from Rasol Pass on the other side of the river, and after a day of rest trekkers used to move to Khiksathaj to return two days later and then climb up Chndrakhani pass the next day with Pushpa's father as our guide.

What I read in this forum, if it is true, is extremely sad and disturbing. I wish local administration intervenes before it is too late.

I know it's really sad and it's happening in different other parts of Himalayan State.

Hey kullukid,

Thanks a ton for all the information about kasol. I want to know do you have any more information about Bhandari Guest house. Actually nobody in this forum have been able to find that guest house. Please let me know if you have any more information.
P.S I am leaving for kasol on 6th May.

Thanks

There are guesthouses with names including "Bhandari" in High Bank, Rishikesh.

I didn't find anything with a Google search for Manali.

Starting a Business in Manali

Hey guys,

I guess I'm the new kid on this site as this is the first time I'm using India Mike. I have been to Manali a couple of times and as a foodie expected a lot more than i found. Surprisingly there is not much variety in Manali street food. If there is any specific reason for that, I'm all ears because I want to go back there and start a street food business. I have already sorted out basics like where and what kind of stall I want and a place to stay at Mall Road in Manali but am a bit nervous about taking the leap. If you guys could help me by giving me some info on why there aren't many street food businesses there? Is it tedious to get the licensing done? What other factors should I be considering?

Any thoughts are welcome and I would really appreciate any advice!

There are amazing food options (Indian, Continental, Israeli, Chinese) at really affordable prices in Old Manali and Vashisht. There are so many cafes there. The Mall Road basically caters to North Indian tourists from Punjab, Haryana so I think there are just those kind of restaurants there.
