Welcome to the beautiful and unique Malana village!
This isolated paradise in Malana Nala is a must-visit for spiritual seekers and adventure lovers alike. Not only will you be surrounded by lush deodar vegetation, but you’ll also have the chance to trek through the valley and witness the magnificent Malana Dam.
While you’re here, be sure to visit the Jamadagni Temple and the Shrine of Renuka Devi. These temples are a significant part of Malana’s culture and history, and they’re highly respected by the locals. Just remember to be respectful and follow the prescribed paths, and don’t touch anything without permission. The council in Malana runs the show, so no police intervention allowed!
But did you know that Malana is also known for its world-famous marijuana? The Malana cream has won the title of Best Hashis twice and is a popular attraction for visitors. And speaking of visitors, did you know that Malana is one of the oldest democracies in the world? The council consists of 11 members, and their decisions are final. No outsider is allowed to make decisions for the village.
If you’re lucky, you might get to witness the Malanis’ unique conflict resolution strategy: poisoning lambs! Whoever’s lamb dies first loses the conflict. And don’t forget, in Malana, you can’t touch anything without permission, and trade is done via links through the earth or surrounding air.
So pack your bags, folks, and get ready for an adventure like no other. From the two-storeyed houses to the preservation of ecological heritage, Malana is a village like no other. Just make sure to avoid conflicts and stay on the council’s good side, or else you might have to poison a lamb!
