Manali – Adventures and History

In the Hindu religion, it is taught that Manu, one of the Hindu Gods, endured a great flood that devastated the rest of the world. His ship landed in this Kullu Valley area, so Manu re-created mankind and this town was named Manali. There is plenty to do here while on vacation. The peaks that are towering and the grassy terrain of Manali serve as great attractions for those tourists who want adventures. From here, heli-skiing is as easy to get to as is mountaineering and river rafting, which are the most sought after adventure that tourists like to take.

You can visit the 4-storey Hidimba Devi Temple made of wood that is located in the middle of a nearby forest or go for a therapeutic soak in the hot springs that burble out of the ground at only a 30 minute walk away.

Manali is a multi-cultural city and that multi-culturalism has been absorbed in all the various places to eat. That is why Manali is a wonderful place to visit just for the varieties of food available here.

Chandigarh – The Beautiful City

From this area, you can also visit Chandigarh, which is India’s only planned city, with architecture that is known globally and a lifestyle having a quality that is not found in many other parts of this country as well as rest of the world.
