Chandigarh: The Kasol village in Himachal Pradesh is a favourite destination for Israeli tourists visiting the country, it has emerged.
After receiving a mandatory military training, which is hard and exhausting, in their country, they like to visit this village for a well-deserved vacation, the bhaskar.com reported.
On visiting the place, it feels like an Israeli village, as most of them speak only in the Hebrew language.
The Indian men are banned from the village. And if men from outside occasionally dropped in, the villagers won't give them shelter.
The locals said the ban on Indian men is due to rampant eve-teasing of tourists living there.
That is why the Israeli tourists, mainly women, are very fond of the place, they said.
The Israelis believe that their fellow nationals discovered the village some 10 decades ago.
The tourists can get a room to stay there for just Rs 300 per day.
However cyber cafes, run by the locals, are a booming business in the village and becoming a major economic activity.
