MANALI
No holiday in India is complete without a trip to Manali. Tucked away in the shade of dense pinewoods and snowy mountains, there is something about Kulu Valley's premier hill station, that will make you recall childhood fairytales. The earth almost meets the sky all around, the meandering Beas River winds its way through the valley mysteriously, and between the imposing peaks of the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar ranges, hundreds flock to experience how it must be to live in Paradise.

Known famously for its lush green valleys, this beautiful hill station in the lower Himalayas is closely connected to Indian mythology as the legendary King Manu is said to have lived here. It is believed that the ark of Manu was found here after the great flood. Today, the name Manali is almost forgotten for what it truly stands fo the 'Abode of Manu' or the 'Abode of the Gods'. And needless to say, this is precisely why everyone heads to the hills every year: to ski down the icy slopes of the Himalayas, where the gods once lived.

Are you an adventure enthusiast? Give in to the fragrance of the deodar forests, apple orchards and gentle winds. The serene ambience of Manali is tailored for the perfect vacation, no matter what kind of a break you are looking for. Blessed with natural greenery, there are plenty of amazing activities in store in Manali. Through the year, Manali offers a plethora of opportunities for those who love mountaineering, trekking and skiing. Come winter, and the surrounding areas of Manali buzz with tourists whizzing downhill on some of the best ski trails of the world. The best trails near Manali are found in Solang Valley, Kothi, Gulaba, Dhundi and Rohtang. These peaks are not only spectacular, they are some of the highest as well. There are splendid trails for both beginners and professionals.

Manali is also a great spot for unique activities like heli-skiing and yak skiing. Organised by Himachal Heli Skiing (HHS), it is one of the most unique activities in the region. The towering peaks of the Hanuman Tibba summit, Deo Tibba, and the legendary Chanderkhani and Rohtang passes near Manali are known to be the perfect destination for heli-skiers with experience and a great opportunity for those who want to truly live it up. Powerful helicopters carry the skiers to the top of a 14000-foot-high snow laden slope within minutes. Internationally certified heli-ski guides who are experts in snow safety, rescue techniques and mountain travel always accompany people so there is no need to worry about safety. If you think you are made of tough stuff, then try skiing up the slope while being tied to a yak. The idea of yak skiing may sound completely bizarre, but is definitely worth a try!

Look no further than Manali for the perfect getaway any time of the year. Take the unexplored hilly trails through the Kulu Valley and rediscover Himachal's crown gem, and you will know why your search for Paradise ends here.

There Shiva, the great god of destruction (belonging to the holy Trinity of Creator-Preserver-Destroyer), sat in deep meditation until Parvati, the himalaya-putri (daughter of the mountains), succeeded in winning her love. Temples of Shiva and Parvati abound in these mountains and thousands of pilgrims from the plains make their arduous climb to them each year.

More than 95% of the population of HP is Hindu but Buddhism has also made inroads in to the state thanks to the nearness to Tibet and presence of the Dalai Lama at Dharamsala.
