"Bliss named Manali." new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Yesterday
After travelling to basically everywhere in India, it comes to this. Manali, the best of places I've been to. Been there twice, and will be there many more times.
I'd admit that I'm biased, because I'd pick mountains over beaches anyday, but among the whole north west, and even north east, this tiny little valley, will always remain my personal favourite.

"The Honeymooners perfect destination ..." new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Manali is really a very awesome place specially for Honeymooners. I went in 2nd week of lst december .. Although there was not so much snow but still it has its natural beauty without snow ... Overall journey was good enough except I have booked a tour package with Travel Beyond, Shimla on the reference of Holiday IQ. The company was local and we faced a lot of problems just because of that company .. There were no communications between the company agents and bus services, taxi drivers, hotels ... Etc. We suffered a lot. Even at last time the Company's relation manager abused and frightened us (we were two couples). I feel that Holiday IQ should check the of this kind of Frauds. They dint complete any promise that was make at the time of booking. We were very disappointed because of that company otherwise the plce and the locl people were so nice and humble and cooperative also. Thanks.

"The glory of Manali"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
We visited Manali just one day before kojagari Purnima (full moon). We reached here at night after long journey from Shimla.

We saw the blue cascade of flowing of the river Bias. The beautiful noon was melting to the Bias. The blue of sky. The green of shrubs, herbs and the white of ice makes Manali charming.

The people of Manali also innocent. Their behaviour also very nice.

We forget our home.
