Top five places to visit in Manali during winter

Manali is one of the top travel destinations in India. It is nestled in the mountains of the Indian state Himachal Pradesh.

Get around

Most common is taxi which cost around 1700₹ per day or little more (in peak seasons). Second most common way is to hire motor bikes and the price hover around 900-1500₹ per day. Public transports are not so good but they are very cheap (I personally don’t recommend).

Places to visit

Solang Valley

Solang Valley is located about 30 minutes from Manali and on the way to Rohtang Pass. Manali attracts travelers both in winter and summer for snow and adventure sports. Skiing in winter and paragliding in summer are some of the popular activities in Solang Valley. Rohtang Pass usually closed during winter and people visit Solang Valley instead

Budget Stay

During winter if you want to experience the nature do not stay near Mall Road. Hilltop hotels will be best suited to stay close to nature and it will make your stay extraordinary. My personal recommendation is Aastha Cottage, Manali for those who are overlooking for natural ambiance, snow covered mountains, along with best services (and yummy Aloo Paratha!!!)
