Winter vacations are approaching and it is high time to book a resort. There are many places you choose from but Manali has its own charm. In winters, Manali becomes even more elegant with its snow-covered peaks. The scenic beauty is enough to pull in hordes of tourists. Eating noodles and momos on a hilltop with some tea in snowfall has its own element of fun.
Apart from the natural beauty and the exotic weather, there are many awesome attractions in and near Manali. To begin with, Skiing is something you can enjoy in Solang Valley which is just fourteen kilometers from the main city of Manali. There are even training institutes and trainers for skiing.
Another popular activity in Solang Valley is paragliding. For adventure lovers, paragliding is the chief attraction in Manali. Last but not the least, Zorbing is one of the most underrated and fun activities in the valley. In Zorbing, you are placed in a giant transparent ball and rolled down the valley. It’s pretty much like the giant transparent ball in Jurassic World minus all the technology and lots of snow instead of dinosaurs.
Solang Valley is, undoubtedly, one of the most enjoyable places located in Manali. Fifty-one kilometers away from the main city of Manali, is the famous Rohtang Pass. Even the directors love this place as movies like “Jab We Met” and “Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani” have been shot here. You can take your vehicles to Rohtang Pass and the journey is bound to soothe and thrill you to the core. The immaculate and astonishing natural beauty which keeps getting more and more dazzling as you get nearer to the Pass is a feast for your eyes. The altitude of Rohtang Pass is 3980 meters which are quite amazing in itself. It’s also an ideal destination for trekkers as the most famous trek, Manali-Lahaul pass, begins there.
This trek is 117-kilometer long and goes through glaciers, waterfalls and pointed peaks, which serve as tough challenges for the adventurous ones of the lot. Also, this place is no less than heaven for a photographer as the natural beauty makes sure that every shot you take is legendary. If you visit Manali, you’d probably want to shift here. Pack your bags and experience a soul-pleasing trip which will awaken the adventurous animal inside of you.
