Manali, India: For Nature & Adventure Lovers

Manali is a hill station, a paradise on earth located in Himachal Pradesh at an altitude of 6400 ft (approx) above sea level. The hill station is near to the Rohtang Pass which has been a trade route in the olden days and even today. It is one of the route to reach Ladakh, another destination which is very amazing.

Manali is located on the banks of river Beas and the best time to visit it is from March to July, as after that the weather can play devil at times. You can visualize lots of landslides in the later months. The winters are from November to January and during that time you can find lots of snow here. Snow can be seen on the mountains year-round, even in the summer. The Sollang Valley and Rohtang Pass are the best option during the summer.

Well I shall mention why I love this place because its not only wonderful to sit in the lap of nature and have amazing views of mountains and valley but you can also enjoy adventure sports like paragliding, skiing, river rafting and various other adventure trips. Its best to have at least 4-5 days free when visiting Manali. Here you can see lots of tourists but especially Indian tourists, as this is one of the favorites among local travelers.

  1. Really Manali is an amazing place. Recently I have been there for my honeymoon. Its romantic as well as adventurous too. If you are visiting Manali you must have an experience of Paragliding in Solang Valley and Rive rafting in Kullu.
    Its once on a lifetime experience that everyone should have.
