Must visit places in Kullu-Manali!

Kullu-Manali Trip!

Hi guys, welcome back to my blog. This time I have something completely new in store for you people. You can call this a Travel Blog or maybe simply a Blog which has all the details of my Trip my Stay and my Experience.

I would not like to engage your time anywhere else and jump straight to the Pointers I’ve decided to cover for my blog today.

Alright so any of you planning to go to this side should see and plan according to your needs and by that I mean if you are much of a, Adventure Loving Person then plan your trip with your friends and book your Rafting and Paragliding Tickets, Resort Tickets etc. and if you want to visit Kullu-Manali for its Scenic BEAUTY then plan it with your family and relatives. At the end your parents and grandparents love it when you be around them and spend time with them isn’t it? Okay, so coming to Plan of Action 😛 I went there with my parents so in short no adventure sports because they’re too scared to lose me over something like this apparently. Haha well, I do not regret it in any manner because I enjoyed my time with them to the fullest.

Here are the Must-Visit Places in Kullu-Manali.

  • Pandoh Dam

This comes on your way to Kullu-Manali, however you aren’t allowed to click pictures on that particular spot but it can be clicked from anywhere else which I did because it was one of the prettiest locations.

  • Manikaran Gurudwara Sahib

It comes on the way before entering Kullu. It is 34 kms from the main road. If I talk about the Beauty along the way it’s Endless. It’s Serene Peaceful and Mesmerizing…. but these days the road is terrible because of ongoing process of getting the road wider and metalled properly. Also this will be the case on your entire journey and even within the towns, it creates a bit of disturbance and annoys you a little and if you hate traffic then do avoid going to this side for a while.
Talking about the Gurudwara which I almost forgot discussing about the problems I faced, the Gurudwara is really very pretty and peaceful… there’s a section where ladies bath is organised in hot water and for men there’s a different section.
Hot Water comes naturally from the rocks over there under the bridge and you can actually see the steam from that water.
Don’t miss the Langar over there which is too damn good and also as it is said you shouldn’t be leaving god’s home without taking your “prashad”

Can you see the Steam right over there 😍

  • Hadimba Temple

    It is an ancient cave temple dedicated to Hidimbi Devi, wife of Bhima, a figure in the Indian epic Mahabharata. The temple is surrounded by a cedar forest at the foot of the Himalayas. The sanctuary is built over a huge rock jutting out of the ground which was worshiped as an image of the deity.
    The whole location is worth seeing and also there you’ll get to wear the traditional costumes which the men and women of manali wear.

This is what the Temple Looks like 😍😍

This is what I meant by the Traditional Costumes to try… You’ll feel you are one of them 😍

  • Manali Mall Road

The Mall Road of manali is pretty cute and there’ll be no cars in between, as they have recently made it a car free zone where you can roam around freely and sit wherever you want as they have so many joints made here and there. Many of the shops have the traditional stuff and fabric also handicrafts which is actually needed when you visit a place with such rich culture and traditions.

  • Old Manali Club House

This is one of the coolest places in town. it has some really fun activities like Go Cart, Boating, River Crossing, Bubble Cross, Trampoline Jump, Mickey Mouse Jump, 5-D Video Games and a lot many. The Best part is the Food in Club House. It’s truly commendable. I had my best time there.

Boating ⛵

  • Solang Valley

Beauty all along the way. If you love mountains and especially mountains covered with snow and greenery all around you’ll love to visit this place. However the best time to visit Solang Valley is during winters when the Mountains are completely covered with Snow and also the Main Valley. When you reach Solang Valley, you have to either take a bike ride, horse ride or something to reach the top where there are activities such as Skiing, River Crossing and all that stuff and for Pragliding they take you at the top through a trolly. All of this can be extremely cool and adventurous if there is snow, but when I went which was in the month of March the snow wasn’t there as expected.

  • Rohtang Pass

It is far away from Manali which is 55 kms up but it is worth going when you have come this far. However the road was closed at my time due to heavy snowfall over there. Initially the roads were too narrow to travel with your vehicle it could actually scare the hell out of you but these days they are working on the roads entirely which wouldn’t leave a problem at all in the coming future.

All in all I had a wonderful experience. My only advice to you would be…..
Don’t go in the Peak Season there’ll be too much traffic you’ll get annoyed after some time. Also make sure of your bookings near the centre place which will make your travel easier.

Lots of Love <3
