Nestled in the mountains of Himachal Pradesh, Manali is not just another tourist spot in India. Manali is like most wanted destination for any other college student in recent years. People just don’t want to visit Manali, for its famous tourist spots but for the pure breathing nature.
Surrounded by high peaks in the beautiful green Beas valley, with mountain adventures beckoning from all directions, Manali is a year-round magnet. Backpackers come to hang out in the hippie villages around the main town; adventurers come for trekking, climbing, rafting and skiing; Indian families and honeymooners come for the mountain air and a taste of snow on the 3978m Rohtang pass. It makes sense to unwind and feed up here for a few days while organising your trip into the mountains.
“Manali is named after the Sanatan Hindu lawgiver Manu. The name Manali is regarded as the derivative of ‘Manu-Alaya’ which literally means ‘the abode of Manu’. Legend has it that sage Manu stepped off his ark in Manali to recreate human life after a great flood had deluged the world.”
I don’t want to write the famous points or an itenerary because you can find them online. Just google it. If I talk about my experience, please take me back to the mountains. Visited manali with my friends in the month of December and Wow snowclad mountains everywhere and fresh flowing Beas river , everything just breathtaking.From River rafting to Paragliding we did every possible adventure to enjoy our moment.If I talk about food , Maggi has become a must wherever you go in any mountanious region of India.
