General Info:

Rasol Village is a famous charas producing village that lies at 2600m above Chalal village and Rasol in Parvati Valley. The Rasol landrace fields are spread out and at very high altitude due to ongoing police attention caused by the Rasoli reputation for high quality charas and the village’s relative proximity to the main road and Kasol.

Access is still strenuous with a fair hike up from Chalal to get to the village. On the way up you’ll pass the village fields and lots of feral landrace before the trail splits up into several directions. 

 

To the east the trail leads to the ‘Ja’ fields above the village. 

 

In the valley leading to Rasol Pass on the trek to Nirang are the ‘Oridhar’ fields at 3000m.

‘Vairam’ and ‘Vairam Top’ are the fields on the Vairam mountainside to the west of the village. The mountainside fields are at 2600-2900m and the ‘Top’ fields begin at 3000m.

Parla Thatch lies past Vairam up Parvati valley towards Choj at 3200m.
