"Beautiful manali"

  • Posted Apr 1, 2009
After a long and tiring journey in a Volvo from Delhi, it was a heavenly experience to reach Manali. Truly one of the best hill stations I have been to. Manali provides activities for all, ranging from skiing, river crossing and rafting to a bath in hot springs in Manikaran, many temples for religious minded, and a relaxing atmosphere for people not looking for any activity.Lots of preserved forest gardens in walking range to sit and relax. Or go to the banks of River Beas, put your feet in the water and experience heaven on earth.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Mall road had lots of restaurants, lot of them run by Tibetan families, offering Tibetan, Chinese and Japanese food at reasonable rates and ambience. Chopsticks was my favorite during the stay. Hidimba Temple, Ghatotkach temple, Vashist hot water springs are in near vicinity. Can plan a day long tour to Manikaran, which includes a break for rafting in Beas, which is very easy grade 1 kind of rapids. Manikaran in itself is a good destination where you see the power of nature tempered with religious beliefs of people. Many hot water springs abound where one can take bath, have langar in gurudwara and revel in the religious spirit. Beware of saffron dealers trying to sell Saffron and shilajit.

Activities & things to do: Rafting, Skiing, River crossing, Bathing in Hot springs at Vashist and Manikaran, you name it and the activity was there. Also has a club house for those who don't want to leave malls in Delhi behind which has video games and badminton etc. etc.....

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Took a volvo from Delhi overnight Journey, but you tend to miss the spectacular scenery on the way, including the Tunnel between Mandi and Kullu, the imposing Pandoh dam and the marvellous Beas Sutlej Link.

"Beautiful Manali"

  • Posted Jul 10, 2008
Manali, one of Himachal's best known hill-stations, is a great destination for those who love the hills. The beautiful hills (some of which are snow capped), the pine forests, the fascinating Beas, the bustling new Manali, the foreign tourists haven old Manali - all combine to make Manali a great holiday destination.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Its a great place to shop for Tibetan artifacts, Juices, Jams and Squashes and fruit wines. There's a lot to see too - the Beas river, the nature park (a pine forest in the heart of manali), the temples, the Mall Road with its shops and restaurants, Old Manali with its interesting shops and restaurents, Rohtang Pass ...

Activities & things to do: Activities include river crossing, white-water rafting, para-gliding and trekking.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: There's a flight to Kullu - but that its frightfully expensive. So be prepared for a 15 hour bus journey from Delhi.

We traveled by Rao Travels' Volvo bus service and it wasn't such a great experience - there are other operators and I would recommend that you try them.

If you have children traveling with you, make sure that you book a seat for them. Carrying them on your lap for 15 hours can be quite tiring. Keep a shawl close at hand during the bus ride...the AC can chill you to the bone.
