A state in Northern India has become a hotspot for Israeli tourists looking for sex, drugs and adventure.

According to the UK’s Daily Mail, “some parts of scenic Himachal Pradesh are virtually turning into Jewish settlements,” as Israelis import the carefree lifestyle of Tel Aviv to other parts of the globe.

According to an estimate cited by the newspaper,  “about 70 per cent of the foreigners visiting the state are from Israel. Places such as Dharamkot village (near Dharamsala), Old Manali, Vashishth, Kasol and Tosh Village have nearly half of their population of Israeli nationality, a source said.”

Even Sign-boards in Hebrew have begun to pop-up in the area.

“The peaceful Kangra and Kullu valleys have become a safe haven for lakhs of Jews who migrate here for many reasons – including karmic cleansing, and an uninterrupted feast of drugs, adventure and sex,” adds The Mail.

Sources told the newspaper that the Israeli backpackers live in groups and rarely mix with others. Others simply stay away from them.

The rave-mad region has also become home to an Israeli mafia, which operates alongside Russian and Italian mafias, though the Daily Mail reports that there are no reports of a mafia rivalry in Himachal Pradesh, as the Israelis maintain a dominant position.

    if rats flock a region it doesn’t mean they own it. it is only a matter of time that they are flushed out.

      I’m worried, considering their history. Why isn’t the local administration doing something? Why wait for the situation to escalate to a disaster level?

    The Indians should kick them out. They aren’t bringing anything good there.
