Manali Travel

Situated near the end of the valley on the National Highway leading to Leh, Manali will take you a step closer to nature. Blessed with a breathtaking landscape, snow capped peaks, clear water and scenic beauty, Manali is one of the favourite tourist destinations. From temples to antiquity, to picturesque sight-seeing spots and adventure activities, Manali is a popular resort for all seasons and for all travelers. Manali-the veritable "valley of the Gods"-is an ideal place for the ones in search of both adventure and comfort.

Boasting of too many sites to visit, the Hidimba or Dhungri Temple of Manali is one of the popular attractions here. Established in the year 1533, this temple is dedicated to the local deity Hidimba, who was wife of the Pandava prince, Bhim. One of the major festivals of the temple is celebrated in the month of May. The most notable feature of the temple is its four storeyed pagoda and exquisite wooden carvings.

Manali is also famed for its Buddhist monasteries. The entire Kullu valley houses the highest concentration of Tibetan refugees and is famous for its Thekchhokling Gompa, built in 1969. The monastery is maintained by donations from the local community and through the sale of hand-woven carpets in the temple workshop.

Another popular attraction is the Nyingamapa Gompa that stands near the bazaar, in a garden blooming with sunflowers. Its main shrine, lit by dozens of electric bulbs and fragrant with Tibetan incense, houses a colossal gold-faced Buddha, best viewed from the small room on the first floor.

The Museum of Traditional Himachal Culture, near the Hidimba temple, is worth a visit, which houses artifacts of folk art of the entire Kullu valley.

Best Time to Visit
Boasting of an amazing weather, the hill station of Manali can be visited throughout the year. While the summers make this place a great escape from the heated plains of the country, the winters cover the entire region with a sheet of snow.
Summers are perfect for sightseeing and adventure sports like river rafting, paragliding, zip lining and zorbing, while the winters are ideal for enjoying snowfall and snow sports.

The monsoon season should be avoided because of landslides.
