Manali is a high-altitude Himalayan resort town in India’s northern Himachal Pradesh state. It has a reputation as a backpacking center and honeymoon destination.It’s a gateway for skiing in the Solang Valley and trekking in Parvati Valley. It’s also a jumping-off point for paragliding, rafting and mountaineering in the Pir Panjal mountains, home to 4,000m-high Rohtang Pass. Manali is a picturesque hillstation situated along the banks of the river and close to the snows of Himalayas. The scenery at Manali is picture perfect: glacier topped Himalayas looking down on lush, grassy valleys and forests of the valley. For long, Manali was a well hidden hippie Shangri-La ignored by mainstream tourists. All that changed when insurgency rendered Kashmir Valley inaccessible to tourists. Manali replaced Kashmir as the most popular destination for honeymooners and for those wanting to indulge in snow play.The best places you must visit in Kullu-Manali are Rohtang Pass, Hadimba Temple, Vashist Hot Water Springs, Solang Valley, Basheshwar Mahadev Temple, Nehru Kund, Sultanpur Palace, Bijli Mahadev Temple, Beas River, Ma Sharvari Temple and many more.
