Agent Name: Saloni Jain
Month of Travel: March 2017
Tour Duration: – 4 Nights / 5 Days
Day 1: Traveling from Delhi to Manali
As per our day wise itinerary, on the 1st day of our tour, I along with my family started our journey at night. I got the chance of taking the fine glimpse of white snow capped mountains, blue skies, lush greenery when I woke up.
Day 2: Manali (arrival) – Solang Valley (activities) – Manali
On reaching Manali, we got checked into Hotel Surya International, situated at a little distance of the Mall Road. From the hotel, the white mountain could be easily seen. It was my first experience of viewing such a beautiful mountain.
As we had only three days for enjoying the tour, I along with my husband and our daughter set out for the Solang Valley, famous for its summer and winter sports activities. Falling along the way leading from Manali to Rohtang Pass, this gorgeous valley is situated at a distance of 14 km from the heart of the Manali town. From our hotel, all of us reached there within an hour at 11:30 am.
Knowing our desire to go to the Rohtang Pass, our driver said, “We shall not be allowed to go to the pass because the road to it would be completely covered with snow.”
On reaching the Solang Valley, first of all, we began enjoying the activity of ‘Quad or ATV ride’. In the beginning, it was difficult for me to drive as the road was covered with snow so we decided not to ride our ATV. Our guide started driving. After driving up to the distance of 1 km, when the road was clear, he said to us, “Come and begin driving slowly.”
At first, my hubby sat in the driving seat and drove the ATV for up to some distance. And then, it was my turn. I was much afraid as the chilled air forced me to bow my head. But I drove it successfully and really got a thrilling experience down my head.
After enjoying the exciting and thrilling ATV ride, we were willing to ride the Ski-Doo Snowmobile. Our guide said, “It is easy to ride the Ski-Doo Snowmobile.” And really, it was not difficult. I enjoyed its riding to its fullest.
What is called a memorable moment? I think that having unlimited fun with family and friends makes memorable moments.
There, our thrilling and excitement did not end. As it was now the turn for doing skiing. For the first time, I did some skiing. At first, the trainer guided us about doing this and then we learnt it and started doing it easily. To do so was a fun.
What a day it was! I think that it was awesome. We never enjoyed such as a fun.
There, I got the chance of putting on the traditional clothes of Himachal. It was really nice to wear them. The day was well spent. And now it was time to get back to our hotel to take a rest there.
Day – 3 Manali – Kullu (sightseeing and activities) – Manali
Today, we stepped out from our hotel at 11:00 am to go to Kullu. We reached there at 12:30 pm. There, we enjoyed white water rafting on the Beas River. To do so was awesome as the water of the river was ice cold and fast flowing.
Kullu is well known for its shawl manufacturing. There, I visited some of its manufacturing units and bought a few shawls for my friends and mother in law. In Kullu, I visited several ancient Hindu temples. Later, we got back to our hotel to stay there all the night long.
Day 4: Manali (sightseeing and activities)
Today, we set out for the sightseeing of Manali. We paid a visit to the famous ancient Hadimba Temple, a must visit peaceful place in Manali. After this, we enjoyed the yak ride. I was much excited to do so as I did this for the first time. We also visited some other points of interest such as museums, parks, and much more. Along the both sides of the Mall Road in Manali, you can find a great number shops. There, I could see several newly married couples as well as older couples. For me, it was like another honeymoon. At that time, I felt myself, like a queen. But for this time, my husband had another queen our daughter with us. My loving daughter also loved this place and activities enjoyed here.
There, we could see different types of clothes, eatables, bags, shoes, and much more. Every item was extraordinary. Painting on the key rings is a specialty of the artists along the Mall Road. In the shops, they are really very fast to paint with clarity. For my family and friends, I bought several key rings with their names. It was a nice gift for all with the feel of being special in spite of being small.
Finally, we returned to our hotel to spend overnight there.
Day 5: Manali (departure)
Today, we left Manali after enjoying the fun of the family vacation tour. I am not capable of forgetting Manali, its climate, and specially Solang Valley, one of my most unforgettable moments I enjoyed there.
All of us must have heard a proverb, “East or West, home is the best.” But if you once enjoyed the tour to Manali, this proverb makes no sense to you as Manali is like a heaven, a place where you get lost in its eternal beauty.
