Have you ever been to a place so beautiful, you felt like you wanted to be a part of it. It may be a waterfall or a forest or some other natural wonder, but many would agree that being a little stoned definitely helps you connect with things around you. India is one of the best places to be if you like to partake, so here’s a few places where it feels just magical to get high.
1)Kasol, Himachal Pradesh
The evergreen haunt of every Indian new to the herb. However much people may say that it’s overcrowded and overused, the fact remains that it’s got everything a stoner requires a stone’s throw(pun intended) away. There’s a river, great food, pretty forests and perfect weather.
2) Tosh, Himachal Pradesh
A slow climb through slightly difficult roads will get you to Tosh. Very isolated, greener than imaginable and easy on the pocket. The hotel owners will sort you out with chai, pancakes and the like so you can enjoy your buzz with a full stomach.
3) Chalal, Himachal Pradesh
Just about a 25 minute walk up from Kasol lies Chhalal, which isn’t much different from it’s lower brother but the walk here is perfect for sparking a big one and drawing fairies on the trees. Practise some yoga here to get your zen on.
4) Mcleodganj, Himachal Pradesh
Another regular haunt for college-goers, Mcleodganj is known for it’s killer food, great weather and beautiful treks. Basically, spark one on the way up and satisfy those mad munchies like nobody’s business.
5) Old Manali, Himachal Pradesh
New Manali’s definitely not for those of the mellower variety. Hit up Old Manali and sip on some of the best hot chocolate you’ll find in the uppers. Ask them to make it ‘special’ and watch your day go from nice to freaking amazing.
