Manali the name only re-juvenates me and bring me the memories of my childhood and young days. Grow up in the abode of hills near manali so manali is always a place to relieve all the presuures of home and work. The beuti lies in tis breathtaking hills and valley underneath. The Beas River with its beds touching the apple orchids and if lucky then one can fish our apples rather than fishes from the river. Time seems to be a only spoil factor in manali as it limits the stay and enjoy.


the adjoining kellu valley the naggar the manikaran, the hidimba temple, rohtang vashishth bath, you name any place offerring differnt tastes to your eyes and manali has it in its lap. manali always won many hearts and now fords owner who is making a ski resort in manali for international as well indian tourist. if you are planning to come to manali then dont plan but come and you will never repent on it.


Its major facts:


Altitude : 2050m.


Attractions : Vashisth Hot Sulphur Spring, Rohtang Pass, Hadimba Temple


Best Time To Visit : May to October.


The Kullu valley has an ancient town in its lap called Manali. Surrounded by towering peaks at an arm length, Manali's major asset is its proximity to the snowline. It is a flourishing orchard industry, a popular honeymoon destination and trailhead for numerous treks as well as a great countryside ideal for adventure sport lovers.


Manali literally means the 'Home of Manu'. Manu is the mythological character who is supposed to have survived when the world was drowned in Flood. He then came to Manali and recreated human life. Thus, the area of Manali is sacred and Hindus treat the temples over here as pilgrimage.


PRIME ATTRACTIONS


Hadimba Temple: Hadimba or Dhungiri temple in Manali is one of the most important temples in the region. This four-story wooden temple is located in the middle of a forest called the Dhungiri Van Vihar.


Gadhan Thekchoking Gompa: This Gompa dominates the Tibetan area around the bottom of the Mall in Manali. The Tibetan refugees built the Gompa in the late 1960's. The Gompa is covered with brightly coloured frescoes and a mid size Buddhist statute. It also carries a list of the martyrs killed in occupation of Tibet of 1987 to 1989.


Old Manali: The old Manali area is located some 3-km from the present day Manali. The old Manali is covered with guesthouses, which look ancient now, and orchards where the livestock move at will.


Temple of Manu: Slippery stones paths lead through the old village houses up to the temple of Manu. Manali is named after the sage Manu who meditated when he came in this area.


Rohtang Pass: Rohtang Pass is the highest point, 4,112m, on the Manali-Keylong road, 51-km from Manali town. It provides a wide panoramic view of mountains rising far above clouds, which is a sight truly breath-taking.


Tibetan Temple: Tibetans have a base in Manali too. There is a large modern Tibetan temple to the South of the bus stand and also a small handicrafts center.


Arjun Gufa: On the left bank of the Beas, 5-km from Manali near the village of Prini, is the 'Arjun Gufa' or the cave of Arjuna. In here Arjuna practiced austerities to get Pashupata Ashtra or weapon from Lord Indra.
