    This is nearly 3 KM trek from Vashisht temple. Vashisht temple is 2 KM from the main market area of Manali and you can reach the parking area of the temple in 15 minutes by vehicle. After visiting the Vashisht temple complex you can start the trek. The trek route passes through a narrow lane by the side of the temple and it goes through apple orchids, tall pine trees small water streams. On the way, few restaurants and guest houses are also available. The hike is around 3 km and leads to a scenic waterfall.

    Yogini Mata temple is at the base of the waterfall. From here if you can climb then can reach the top point of the waterfall. The stiff climb will take 20 minutes more to reach the top. If you don't want to climb up then towards your right side through the narrow path you can reach the base of the waterfall. Here there is a small pool formed by the falling water and here you can take bath and spend some time. Or simply spend your time near the temple and watch the waterfall. In the temple, there is a provision for the devotees to take food on available stone plates.

    After getting down from the waterfall, we stroll at Mall Road, which is the center point of Manali, and then spend the rest of the evenings doing Cafe hopping in Old Manali. Old Manali is another popular area of Manali. The place houses several cafes that serve delectable cuisines with an attractive ambiance.

Not all of them are clustered with luxury stays and world cuisine restaurants, but you’ll be surprised with the warm hospitality of the villagers and locals in the Old and the New Kasol, separated by a small bridge. 

    While Kasol gets the spotlight amongst the villages of the Parvati Valley, one can enjoy the true serenity of the magical Himachal Pradesh by trekking a little further from this major town to the quaint little village of Chalal.
