A person is born filled with colour. They start losing it bit by bit with age; eventually going through the routines of the 9 to 5 job,(if lucky) they lose it all, ultimately black and white is the colour that dawns on them. In order to get out of the situation, rejuvenation becomes a requirement.

Travelling is the best thing that could happen to you. Of all the places tranquil Himalayas are somewhere you ought to be. What better place, there would be to choose a place which offers both the buzz and the placidity- Manali.

Set in the care of the nurturing deodar trees, lies Tall Trees Resort, a resort built from nature’s DNA, surrounded by pristine mountains to give a panoramic view to look up to. A smell of timber announces your arrival to the resort.

About The Property

Tall Trees resort does a great job in provisioning luxury in a natural forest without interfering with it too much.

The resort’s sole purpose is to show people that you can live in harmony with the woods without leaving out luxury.

All masterpieces require precise working putting time and money into it. Just like Rome, the resort wasn’t built in a day; the idea which was conceptualised in 2003 came into being after seven years of unhindered spirit, conscientious planning and sustainable development.

The pearl of the resort is its garden. A stroll in it would see you come across beauteous multi-coloured butterflies, narrating a story sucking nectar off the divine flowers. You would be so engaged in this activity that you would lose yourselves.

The gem of the resort is its staff. Humbleness and warmth are the two pillars that they rely on while serving you.

The Resort offers you two kinds of accommodation, a dilemma being put into every time you are in the mountains- Tents or Cottages.

You wouldn’t show any signs of laziness to get up early in the morning, would you? If I tell you, you would be greeted by the exotic chirping birds, couple that with the music of the gushing water next to the cabins and you are in for a treat sitting just outside your room sipping coffee.

The camp is set by the beas river. A 10-minute panoramic walk through the jungle, makes you wonder, why I don't visit the woods more? Mornings near the camp mean sitting by the Beas River enjoying a cuppa of the locally brewed coffee. Nights mean watching a sky full of stars, having a barbecue in the heat of the fire.

Food

The resort's in house restaurant boasts an array of exemplary chefs; one of those has had experience cooking for Australian foodies. Your mornings are welcomed by smiling faces from the kitchen staff.

Variety is something you can bank on, the three cuisines English, Indian, Continental don't leave you short on choices. The scrumptious sausages, toasted breads, delectable paranthas coupled with a variety of juices or a cup of a hot beverage(tea/coffee). The lunch and dinner spoil you in savoury as well as sweet.

You are in Old Manali, you are talking Cafes and Food.

Arguably the best cafes in the hills are in Manali and the best food is served in 1947. It's a place, a person with a sweet tooth would regret missing on. Tiramisu, Blueberry Cheesecakes are just to name two dishes you would wish to come back for. The Italian dishes would result in your jaw-dropping. But that is not all there is to 1947, charming music is sung by this riverside cafe to make it the sweetest combination.

Late December-February- But Manali is at its most picturesque from late December to February.
