Travel Tips for visiting Manali

Perched at 1800 m in the Himalayan mountains, the city of Manali in India

The city will charm you with its temples, its natural hot springs, its markets, and of course the old city.
If you prefer mountain sports, this city in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh will be your Eden:
  • Canyoning
  • Skiing at the Solang Valley
  • Mountain biking

The possibilities are numerous and it is likely that between the waterfalls, hiking at the Bhrigu Lake, and the small shopping streets you will find something to dazzle you.

Manali is located in the state of Himachal Pradesh in India.

This small town is the last town before Ladakh.
Region of which many tourists speak to me as being the paradise on earth.

This small town perched on the first heights of the Himalayas is rather a good surprise!
The Indians are not mistaken incoming more and more numerous to see for the first time in their lives the snow!

You can spend 2 or 3 days here in Manali to discover temples and shopping streets.
But also practice many mountain activities such as hiking, rafting, climbing, canyoning, mountain biking, and even horse riding while preparing your trip to Ladakh.


5.000 inhabitants live in Manali.
The new economic activity of the city is of course tourism with many offers related to the mountain.
The city of Manali has even become a very fashionable ski resort for the Indians.


Geographically, the city of Manali is located on the first heights of the Himalayas at an altitude between 1.800 and 2.000m! 
There is only one road to Manali.

The same and only one that will bring you to Ladakh if you continue further north.
But be careful, the road to Ladakh is only open from June to November, sometimes a little earlier for jeeps. And to crown it all, with each snowflake the road is the public!

But it remains open for the military. Indeed, just above the region of Manali is the region of Kashmir. 


The particularity of this old Hindu temple built in 1553 is that it is in the middle of the forest 

It is especially the exterior of the temple which is surprising.
It looks like the temples that we can see in the streets of Kathmandu in Nepal. 
Don't hesitate to go inside.

In this case, repeat the gestures that many Hindus do.
Do not forget that if you are here and visit this temple, it is above all a religious place.
