Cradled in the laps of the Himalayan Mountains, a city on the banks of the river Beas; picturesque valleys and forests decorating the landscape… Welcome to Manali. Located in the state of Himachal Pradesh, Manali is as much known for the great natural beauty of the place as well as the history and culture. The region has seen the amalgamation of a lot of different customs, the most recent contribution coming from the English during the British period. The planning and architecture of the place still show the influence of that period.
Often referred to as the ‘Lover’s Paradise’, Manali is blessed with spectacular scenic beauties. Lush greeneries, extending meadows, colourful blossoms added with effusing streams – Manali is just like a town in fairy tale.
Manali is actually a collection of three adjacent hills. Each hill has a village and an old temple dominating it, Old Manali, Vashishtha and Dhungri temple.
Manali offers that haunting beauty to which hill stations in the lower Himalayan ranges can only aspire.
