I often wondered whether I am a beach-person or a mountain-person. A solo trip to Old Manali gave me the answer. One day spent in this entirely different world made me realize that I love mountains more than beaches. Crossing the bridge over gushing Manalsu River will take you to this paradise, and you will feel as if you have entered a different country altogether.
This part of Manali has a striking charm with a blend of foreign and Indian aspects. It has chiselled out a place of its own that is waiting to be explored and rejoiced by travellers. This village is exposed to the comforts of modern world, but at the same time, it seems as if it is directly from a fairytale. Two different worlds exist on both sides of the bridge. There is a lot more than only the distance that divides quaint Old Manali from touristy Manali.
