Had been willing to go on a trip alone and finally did go to Manali. Transportation by Volvo, very comfortable over night travel. Stayed at Old Manali and Vashisht at cottages. Visited the hidden waterfall after 3 hours of trekking. That was the highlight of the trip. The way originates from Vashisht. Ate food primarily from the various cafes in Old Manali. Had the best time there alone. And also realised that travelling alone is probably the best way to travel.
Stay: Dragon Hotel, Manali- Very reasonable and filled with backpackers.
