Old Manali

Also called the hippie hub, Old Manali is known as a global village where foreigners from many countries come to experience the atmosphere and excitement. The place is extremely charming and it is no wonder that many choose this place as their honeymoon destination. Old Manali is famous for its riverside café by the name of River Music. It is also called Moondance and serves up a hearty menu of soups, momos, pasta, sandwiches and much more that go well with ginger and honey flavoured teas. There are a number of shops that sell drapes here, the most famous being a shop called No Problem International.

Day 1 : Delhi to Old ManaliFrom ISBT Kashmere Gate you will find ample of volvo and cheap HRTC buses running towards Manali. Volvos are costly but will take you to your destination on time and with all amenities. Rather HRTC is backpakers way but little uncomfortable if you are not used to it. Bus will drop you in Manali early in morning around 8:00 AM.

Old Manali proved refreshing from the over-crowded and polluted New Manali but the hangover of the hippy town faded quickly as we longed to travel someplace colder, secluded and cleaner than Manali. After cancelling out on Kasol and Palchan, we headed straight to a local travel agent, who convinced us for Kaza and there we were boarding our tempo traveller for Spiti at 4 the next morning (Rs. 800 per person).

As hurtful as it may be, but all good things come to an end and our last day had arrived. We had our departure at 6 in the evening for Delhi, however, we seized every moment, ate lunch at the Lazy Dog café, sipped some frothy macchiato at a bakery and bid farewell only to return soon!
When in Old Manali, Aparna was visibly agitated at the noise and crowd. And that's when I knew I had successfully managed to make a city girl fall in love with the peace and quiet of the remote mountain villages.
