Manali is an ideal place for couples as well as for family to enjoy and ecperience a foreign atmosphere here in India. The climate in Manali compells a tourist to add up their stay for some more time. I visited Manali for the first time but I would love to visit it time and again.

"Amazing place" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Manali is most adventures place. Manali is situated in Himachal Pradesh. I suggest to go in Manali after May & before August because 3 month Manali weather is so romantic & cloudy and so cold this is the best place to go with your family, girlfriend & relatives. Manali Mall road is so beautiful if you go Manali then you should go to Rohtang Pass and Solang Valley. It's an adventurous place and you see snow there.
