Manali Situated in the central parts of the northern state of Himachal Pradesh, Manali is at the head of the Kullu valley, 280 km north of the state capital Shimla and 108 km from Mandi. Manali is perched at an altitude of 2050 meters above sea level and is spread along the banks of the river Beas. In winters, the temperature can drop below freezing point when heavy woolens are required. Summer temperatures are mild and light woolens/cottons are recommended. In Manali, one can find high mountains shrouded by silent snows and deep boulder strewn gorges. There are thick forests, filled with cool breezes and bird song. There are fields of wild flowers, small picturesque hamlets and fruit-laden orchards, especially apples.

But best time 2 visit was december,January and febrauary!

Manali has a cool climate all through the year. Summers (March to June) are very pleasant with temperatures ranging between 12°C and 25°C. Winters (November to February) are chilly with minimum goes down well below 3°C and maximum never crossing 14°C. Heavy snowfalls are common during winters. Monsoons offer very less rainfall during July to August.

Best time to visit this hill station is any time of the year. Winters is good for winter skiing. Make sure that winter woolen clothes are kept with you while touring, especially during January. Rohtang pass is open only in July and August

Well,I visited Manali in the month of December(9th December).As soon as i entered my Hotel Room,heavy snowfall started.It continues for the next 3 days(non-stop).We really enjoyed a lot.
So, i would suggest u to visit manali in winters so that u could enjoy snowfall.

If snowfall is your main motive, then Dec-Feb is the time when you can expect snowfall.

Manali is a safe destination to visit. It may be bit difficult during rainy season.
