Travel is my therapy.
In the evening, when the sun was setting down and it was dark outside I went to moon dance Cafe. And further, I was shocked by the beauty of the cafe as the whole Cafe was lighted with candles. As I entered the cafe, I felt like I am entering into a unique world of shining lights of candles. It was raining outside, hence it was a very amazing place to enjoy and explore the beauty of Kasol sitting in the lap of nature. Get yourself drench-ed in the Kasol-ian sun and adventure in the picturesque valleys and mountains.
