About the Tour
A backpacker’s playground and honeymoon destination! Manali is one of the popular hill station of Himalayan range in Himachal Pradesh.
Nestled amidst the snow-clad mountains of the Himalayas, Manali has emerged as a key tourist destination in India. The mighty Beas and the apple orchards are like sparkling jewels on this beautiful town. Earlier, Manali was majorly known for adventure activities. But as tourism in Kashmir declined, more people journeyed towards Manali. The city also opens gates to Ladakh, Spiti, and Lahaul. As a result, almost 30-40 lakh visitors set foot in Manali every year.
One of the most popular places in Manali is the Rohtang Pass. This spot links the valleys of Kullu and Spiti. Rohtang Pass is brutally cold. Hence it is only opened during the summer months. Manali is also well known for its places of worship. Apart from the Beas Kund, Hadimba Temple, Basheshwar Mahadev Temple and Maa Sharvari Temple, there are many monasteries and Tibetan Buddhist temples in the region. Sikhism’s popular holy site Manikaran Gurudwara is also just 3 hours drive from Manali.
Manali is a heavenly abode for adventure lovers. The city provides many activities like river rafting, paragliding, rock climbing, skiing, zorbing, snow scootering, hiking, river crossing, and of course, trekking. Not all who provide these services are well trained. So, proper check is a must before investing in them. There are also plenty of natural hot water sulphur springs in the area. Their medicinal properties are known to cure many diseases.
Manali’s streets have various Maggi and fresh juice points. On the alcohol front, the Lugdi/Chang/Arak beverages of the region are famous. The local cuisine here has an essence of Tibetan culture. Chilra, Sidu, and Bedhni rotis at the local cafes are mouthwatering. The colorful shops of Manali compel people to visit them. Chingu blankets are known for being warm in winters and cold in summers.
