40 kms. away from Kulu to the north, Manali is situated near the end of the valley on the National Highway leading to Leh. The landscape here is breath taking. One sees well-defined snow capped peaks, the Beas river with its clear water meanders through the town. On the other side are deodar and pine trees, tiny fields and fruit orchards. It is an excellent place for a holiday, a favorite resort for trekkers to Lahaul, Spiti, Kinnaur, Leh and Zanskar regions in Kashmir valley. It is known as the SWITZERLAND OF INDIA.

Manali is Situated at the northen end of the Kullu Valley, Manali has spectacular views of snowcapped peaks and wooded slopes. The Beas rushes along its rocky course amid grassy meadows carpeted with wild flowers and wagtails hop along from stone to stone along the stream's edge. There are marvellous walks too, through dappled orchards and fairy-tale forests of deodar.

The Manali market is crowded with myriads of interesting shops selling Tibetan carpets and crafts and the appetizing aroma of steaming noodles hangs about the  little restaurants. Manali, with its Mountaineering Institute, is a popular base for trekking and mountaineering in summer and skiing in winter. Interesting routes into the surrounding valleys, over the high passes, are provided with tourist huts and rest houses for trekking enthusiasts.

Manali is not as commercial as Shimla and a lovely place to visit.Rohtang pass is at a small distance from Manali and u get frequent buses for it.There u can find snow all the year round and even snow fall in winters.

I stayed in Holiday Inn resort with 3N/4D package.It was a great visit.You can go from Manali to Shimla as well by bus.It takes approx 10 hours and if going by taxi,it will take 7-8 hours.

Its worth seeing once in a lifetime.

For more queries u can contact me.

Hope you enjoyed reading my travelogue.

liked reading what you've put - a good to read - but could't fig out the 'contact me' bit, actually looking at so much more from your travelogue - which BTW reads not like a travelogue but a commentary, take look at what Deepak's put to get a sense of what I mean, but all said and done, it is informative .
