An Elysian dream
Nestled between Pir Panjal and the Dhauladhar mountain ranges, the beautiful town of Manali is India’s most popular Hill station. Located at an altitude of 2050 m in the Beas River valley, Manali is situated at distance of 270 kms to North of Shimla, the state capital.
The unique architectural style of temples and museums, the rustle of pines against dense eucalyptus trees, the sound of the water against the rocks, the little hippie villages to the bustling streets, river rafting against the fierce course, skiing in the snowclad slopes, paragliding along the snow-capped mountains, to trekking along difficult trails and camping under the Milky way, Manali has every reason to attract tourists all year round.
