Manali Travelogue and Travel Stories – A lovely tour to Manali


Why India is generally called ‘Incredible India’ because there are many places here which are miraculous and one of which is Manali. The place is famous for such extravagant picturesque charms and a place which we can acquire serenity is Himachal Pradesh. Manali is an absolutely astounding hill station located at a height of 2050m 6398ft on the Beas River in Himachal Pradesh. The destination offers spectacular views and it also serves as the getaway to the incredible land of Ladakh over Manali-Leh highway crossing Keylong, Sarchu and Darcha. This wonderful hill station is the initial point of numerous treks and journey to the higher mountain ranger. Manali is a popular tourism in India and no matter at what time you visit Manali because it’s cold throughout the year but yes I would suggest you to visit Manali in summer season as the climate is just perfect. If you love traveling and adventure so you should visit this place for a best experience of your life. Well, I started my journey to Manali from Delhi Railway Station. I boarded a Kalka Shatabdi to Chandigarh because there is no direct train from Delhi to Manali. On reaching Chandigarh, I hired a taxi to Manali which cost was around Rs 2000 and it took 7 hours to reach. On the way to Manali, I enjoyed a spectacular views of majestic mountains and later I stopped at a dhaba where I had delicious food. On reaching Manali, I checked in to my hotel and rested for a while. After some rest, I went out for a walk and I experienced the nature of walking on beautiful mountain roads. I had dinner and then spent the night in the hotel. I woke up in the morning with the rays of the sun, which was so beautiful. I had breakfast in my hotel and then I proceeded to see nearby attractions. On this day I decided to explore Mall road since Dussehra celebrations were on, and there were so much crowd in the market. Mall road is famous for shopping like clothes, handicrafts, wooden items, as well as for restaurant and cafes. Later, I head towards Naggar and this was really impressive place where I witness the stunning views of mountains. Naggar highlight was the stroll up to the olden Krishna mandir at Thava. The track passes over some dense pine aromatic forests with sights of far off heights. It takes 40 to 50 minutes approx. and it was the best part of my trip. Next, Tripura sundari temple too was remarkable. Next, I proceeded towards Jana and it’s a beautiful waterfall which is 11 km from Naggar. Here, I had a food and food is the main draw here. They served excellent Himachali stuff such as lingad subzi, rajma, kadhi, makka roti, and red rice. The place is worthy only because of the food. After that, I came back to the hotel for an overnight stay. Next day, I woke up and started my journey towards Solang Valley which was the excellent part of my trip. The solang Valley is located about 14 km from Manali and the place is generally famous for adventure activities like paragliding, skiing, zorbing, horse riding, and ice skating are very common here. I did paragliding which was cost around 3000 rupees for 15-20 minutes but it was off season rates. If you do in any festival season then it may cost around 5000 rupees. Apart from Paragliding there is one thing that you shouldn’t miss is the ropeway. You can purchase the tickets from the sky-Resort located here and I’m sure if you do this you would thank me later if you have no fear from heights: p. Okay, one thing you must carry a good camera or good phone with camera because to capture some amazing moments. Take selfies with the Himalayas. After the enjoyment in the evening I returned back to my Solan Valley hotel for comfortable night stay. Next day, I decided to explore Solang Village and waterfall so I proceed and witness the entire area around the village is crossed by the lovely waterfalls, rivers. The waterfall was alluring and the walk takes 1-1.5 hours one way. Another exciting walk was to the Lord Shiva temple and I visited this temple where I felt the complete positivity in my surroundings. Post dinner I came back to the hotel. On another day, I decided to go Dhundi and the stroll for Dhundi was a slightly hectic one. It was quite enjoyable but it was difficult for me to walk along the river and walking along the road also was not so good. So, I hired a mountain bike and it was good as I explored Dhundi throughout the day. This place offers marvelous views, plenty of streams and flowers of countless kinds. When I visited the road construction project was turned off and it was the best idea to take a mountain bike since I had lost my energy to explore the place. Before sunset I came back to my Solang Valley hotel. On sixth day, I decided to go Rohtang pass and it took around 1 hours 30 minutes to reach. Snow covered, Rohtang Pass is a prominent sightseeing near Manali and that what I couldn’t skip. Stroll on the snow and eating hot maggi or sipping warm coffee was the best ever feeling for me. Here, I induldged in activities like skiing and it was the first time for me. If you are planning to go Rohtang Pass then you should start your journey by 4-4.30 am to avoid jams and also get the best views in the early morning light. After completion of the sightseeing I decided to go back Manali for a night stay. On seventh day, I explored Hidimba Devi Temple which is surrounded by a cedar covered forest. It is a spiritual place where tourists come to gain religious solace. This temple is one of the most popular attraction of Manali. Next was the Tibetan Monastery and is well-known tourist attraction in Manali. It’s also a religious place which is the tibetan monastery and a very elegant place to visit in Manali. So, here my trip is completed and I covered all the best places. Next day, I packed my bags and moved towards the bus stand to go back home with lots of lovely memories.   Highlight of the trip – best experience was paragliding, skiing, Rohtang pass and Solang valley. I was served the best Himachali food at Jana. There was a man and he explained me the differences between Punjabi and Himachali cuisines. Some recommendations from my side to you such as: Stay at the Hotel Iceland in Solang village area. To experience the best views you should stroll in between 6-9 am without wasting a time in breakfast and dressing up. Must visit Hidimba Devi temple and Tibetan Monastery. Shouldn’t skip adventure activities like skiing, ropeway, paragliding, zorbing, etc. Enjoy local cuisines of Manali. Must have hot maggi in Hill stations. Must explore Mall road and Old Manali to make your trip best. If you go Rohtang Pass then must leave for rohtang by 4-4.30 am. If you are in Manali then you should visit Nagar and stay here for a day at Naggar and explore Krishna temple. That’s all major recommendations from my side.
