Parvati valley is located near Bhunter in Kullu District of Himachal Pradesh, India. Parvati valley is famous of its charas which is hand rub version of hashish. Malana is a small village along this valley which is worldwide famouse for its malana creme hash. Deep down the valley is Tosh village last village which is connected by road. Which is our first stop. Tosh village is famous for Tosh ball hashish. It is produced by carefully rubbing the female buds between the hands and then rolled into small ball. Bellow image shows the tosh ball hashish 5 to 7 grams in weight. All image are high resolution so it may take some time to load.
This hashish is in its pure form smells great and taste awesome. Local rate as of 15 Nov 2013 is 1200 Rs/10grams. Very stony and physical high. Smoke is uplifting and aromatic, Spicy taste smooth and cooling while exhaling. Can be found in any INN in tosh village and most of the time people will offer you products from their farms openly. Buying in large quantity is possible but way risky to bring back home. This product is harvested in month of October to mid Nov and whole village is busy with rubbing. Most of the INN are full during this season.
Here is a photo of freshly produce hashish. This balls are Chocolate light brown when they are packed. Then they eventually change color from light brown to dark brown almost black outside with oily shine. This is supper sticky and hard to roll for joint you need to use chillum for smoking.
You can ask for older hashish villagers stock their produce for years keep inside earthen bowl buried underground for 2-5 years. This mature hashish is totally different then freshly made hashish. It is hard dark almost black brown color ball which crumbles when crush, when smoked its spicy to taste and strong aromatic hits the soul. Totally worth more than fresh one its hard to find as villagers keep those for themselves. You get nice relaxed body high for hours. If sold then in range of 2000 Rs/ 10 gram. Here are some pics of 2 – 3 years old hashish.
Avoid buying hashish in tourist place which do not produce. Like kasol village which is on the way to tosh. This village is like base camp for all tourist looking to explore parvati valley. Hashish in this locations is like mixed of products from low quality Afghan and Nepal stuff.
If you are looking for pure Indian hashish buy it from villages Like Tosh, Jari, Malana and Rasol and try to find farmers who harvest from their own land.
