I want to a beautiful place for breakfast.
This is in old manali and serves authentic italian and mexican cuisine. I had omelette taco for breakfast and that was served as a main course item which is very hard to find in India(in india taco is usually served as snack), it was more than sufficient for breakfast.Thin crusts pizza,taco and lasagne are their speciality. This a place that you remember for food quality not for ambience or setup and the man who runs the kitchen(Vijay) is also very warm. He is a local and he can provide you valuable information which can help you in your travel, moreover you can sit and talk to him about various things and he will share with
you his experiences if he is free from kitchen. After visiting this place my plans for the day changed he suggested me to go to vashist and i found out about another intersting place to satisfy the adventure junkie in me.
Vashisht & Jogini fall
Vashisht is 3km manali you can take a rickshaw or walk on the steep road for 25-30 min. The place is named after Maharishi Vashisht and has an ancient temple. The temple is an old wooden temple with beautiful carving on the wooden walls. There is also a hot water spring in the temple whose water is said to have medicinal values i could not try that because i was carrying a lot of stuff with me. The baths are made in turkish style and are seperate for both males and females, taking bath in naturally occuring hot water in a place like manali can be an experience that i missed but the place can be overcrowded in evening so the best time to go is early morning.
When you come out of the temple on your right there is a narrow street that goes towards jogini falls. The street leads to the forest area and you have to walk 2km through the forest to reach jogini falls, it is a fun trek through the forest. You can carry an empty bottle with you and fill it with fresh water from the waterfall and sit there and enjoy the weather.There is also a small zip line in your way to the fall.
This is an experience i wanted to tell everyone when i come back home, it is located in patlikuhal(17km from manali) you can take a bus from manali bus stand and it will drop you at patlikuhal in 30 min and then you can call(+918894099821) them and ask for directions or take a rickshaw(₹100), most of the rickshaw guys know about the place and they will drop you there. They offer you to drive ATVs and Quadbikes on track and they have a 45 min trail in which you drive the ATV on a 15km offroad trail all by yourself accompanied by a instructor on another ATV. I would recommend this place to every adventure junkie they are setting new benchmark for indian adventure sports. The track is 15 km long in which you pass through mostly rough terrain, through sand, water,rock obstacles. The cost for the trail is 3500 which includes a 15 min training session,they also have an option in which two people can drive the same ATV, you can switch the driver at halfway and that costs 4500, i would recommend this option because 30 min ride can become boring to some and also it is expensive so this way you can experince it without getting bored and save money. If you are thinking about what to eat then they have a perfect answer to your question, they have a kitchen that serves food that is a treat for you palate from falafel and pita to three bean salad and a cup of perforted coffee they have it all and the seating space is also beautiful surrounded
by lush green trees in spring season and beautiful trees without leaves in the autumn. The setting is alltogether beautiful and is adjoining beas river.
