NEVER BEEN TO…MALANA
THE ANCIENT VILLAGE is situated in Himachal Pradesh, 45km north of the popular holiday destination — Kullu.
is is also the nearest airport to Malana. Locals rmly believe that the little settlement is one of the oldest democracies in the world, under the guidance of late sage Jamlu. He was the rst few to inhabit the place.
To date, the village has its own system of governance that involves the teachings of Jamlu, presided over by the village elders. e mountain people are self-su cient and work hard at keeping the purity of this “untouched” green plateau. Internet is but sporadic here, if at all, as is cell phone reception.
Luxury properties haven’t opened in Malana yet; homestyle lodgings and well-kept guesthouses run by locals are the accommodation types here. Adding to the “trip” is Malana Cream that is known for its uniquely superior quality, made from locally grown cannabis.
