Manali & Kullu
 

Welcome to the land of dreams, the land of lush greens and enchanting mountains, silent valleys and bubbling creeks, songbirds, towering coniferous trees and the sweet scent of apples. Covered with flowering Chestnuts and Deodar groves, and the powerful Manalsu torrent flowing through it, Manali has been attracting adventure and nature lovers from all over the world.

Manali is the ideal place to leave the rest of the world behind and go for long walks, mountain climbing, trekking, river rafting, heli-skiing, and para-gliding and trout fishing. Situated at the north end of the Kullu Valley in the Western Himalayas, Manali is located at an altitude of 1929 meters. Bordered by the River Beas on the east and by a great mountain wall topped by a spectacular snow ridge, at the northern end, Manali is a gateway across the 13,050 feet high Rohtang Pass to the beautiful valleys of Lahaul and Spiti. It is the land of Gods and Goddesses, fairs and festivals, religious lakes and ancient temples.
