Manali’s Welcome

In the northen end of kullu valley starts the teritory of manali.

Beas river flowing alongside the road and the trees at the river bank flirting with the cool breeze is a foreplay in manali entercourse and believe me it’s a good one :p .

this awesome journey alongside beas river lasts 10-12 km before the ambiance of mall road hits you.

Where to stay.???

 

Go to manali, stay at a hotel in manali mall road, eat some trout fish and head back home..??

if this is your travel itinerary for manali then i suggest you to save your money and do this stuff in your hometown.
Because manali will need a little exploration.

I visited manali thrice and the third time i discovered the real manali, its the third time when i was in manali and i didn’t knew how those 5 days passed.

Old manali is must to explore if you’re in manali, mall road is nice but too crowded and expensive to stay.

For the experience seekers can camp alongside river beas in old manali, if you dont have your own tents you can rent them in old manali near PEOPLE cafe.

Hadimba Devi Temple

Hidden in the woods, Hadimba devi temple is a place of major tourist attraction and a holy place for Hindus.

besides being a holy place Hadimba devi temple area is a quiet place that provides inner peace. sitting under one of those sky high tall trees listening to the chirruping of the birds and the branches of those trees talking with the wind is a feeling that keeps you in manali a little longer.

People selling local fruits and all other stuff you never saw, can be seen around Hadimba Devi Temple.

 

Amusement activities like Yak rides, archery, hit the glass games are a few fun activities in the premises.

Cafes to Hangout

@Lazy dog’s

As they say– its not a resturant, its a state of mind.

The lazy dog’s lounge is the best thing in old manali in my experience. the ambiance is like a rock band’s  last performance and an artists master piece.

What else to do in Manali

Roaming around van vihar,manali in evenings is a good idea to live manali to it’s fullest.

 

Hiring a motorcycle for a day or two to ride to kasol and explore more of these landscapes is totally worth it and kasol is just 80km from manali
