There are many, many quaint villages in the Himalayas, and how we wish we could visit as many of them as possible before they get commercially exploited and lose their charm and innocence.
Nashala is one such quaint Himalayan village. Towards the right of Naggar Haveli, a winding 5km road around the hills, and through pine forests lies this gorgeous village, where most of the homes are still traditional in architecture. This sleepy agrarian village was the perfect spot for us to spend a day hanging around, photographing. Stay was in Manali, and all meals at Naggar Castle. Katrain could also be a good place to stay with delicious home cooked meals in your own tree house!

Interesting.. Nice read. Manali is now becoming more crowded. My last visit wasn’t a very good 1.
I know, we didn’t enjoy Manali either. It’s crowded and dirty now.
Such a rustic and lovely place… the pictures are beautiful and the berries look yummy… 🙂 you didn’t try them I read, but are they edible?
I did just for the taste 🙂 but I felt bad eating them because they are from the forest and not the farm. Don’t like the idea of stealing food meant for wildlife…
A serene place for sure.Love the pictures.Berries look so sweet.
Sriram & Krithiga

Lovely pics ; Stunning Landscape and it is indeed bliss to be around !! I hope Himachal Calls me soon.
Thanks Pooja! Am sure you will get the call soon 🙂
your photos got good depth to it.
And I am craving for the mountains again. Great pictures. Loved these traditional houses.
Superb photo essay!
Great pics and lovely place! Thanks for sharing.
Is there a place to stay right there in Nashala itself? Or would you suggest to keep the visit only for a day and stay elsewhere, as you did?
Hi! Nashala doesn’t have a stay option, but it’s barely 5km or so from Naggar Haveli/Castle. There are plenty of stay options at Naggar. The Naggar Haveli also has awesome food.
Very nice and informative post. Loved the photographs :).. Specially got to know about such beautiful place. Thanks for sharing.
I have never been to Himanchal and I am just adding on places to my Himanchal Trip list! Nagar Haveli is on my list and guess so is Nashala now specially because of its raw appeal. Lovely pics 🙂
Thanks Vaisakhi! Nashala is worth a trip. And if you are in the region, do visit the Nicolai Roerich museum.
Wow, I love Kaphals. It can be found only at Himalayas and Uttrakhand Jungles in summer season. Its taste is amazing, little sour and sweet. You can use salt with it to make it more tasty.
Wow! Such amazing clicks!! You should have tried those berries, they taste yumm! 😀
Hi Bushra! I did ultimately try those berries, but I would rather leave them alone in the forests for the birds…
Lovely shots. Even I am planning for a short trip to Manali & Spiti 🙂
how far is nashala from kasol or tosh?
Himachal is purely a beautiful place. I have been to Kasol, Tosh and I always feel like going back.
I have visited Himachal Pradesh but never heard the beauty about Nashala village but when after reading your post then i want to go there once more. Thanks for sharing an amazing experience of Himachal Pradesh.

The Himalayan countryside is always fascinating
I have been to Himachal Pradesh a few years ago. Beautiful state i must say
Thanks For sharing nice post and images are so beautiful.
I visited Nashala village in August 2021 while I was on my way to Jana waterfall. However, I couldn’t reach the waterfall. The way you have captured the village has left me in awe. I didn’t get to explore this village that much.
And commenting again. I spent a week at Treehouse owned by Kluas near Nashala village and that’ where I witnessed my life’s first snowfall.
