Planned a Delhi-Manali trip to Manali last Nov. Started early morning on Thursday to avoid the city rush. By 7 AM we had crossed the bypass
to NH1 and followed it till Chandigarh via Panipat and Karnal. Further route Route-Ropar-Kiratpur-Gharmora-Swarghat-Bilaspur-Mandi-Kullu-Manali. The journey took us about 13 hrs with about 3 stoppages, we had two people driving so that helped. The total distance covered 556 km, out of which about 225 was in the hills. We were staying at the Highland Park Manali , which was right next to the river Beas with beautiful views of the river and the valley. The resort had beautiful cottage style deluxe centrally heated accommodation and provided value for money. We took a Luxuria suite which had the bed room with a living room, a living room with a balcony and a garden. We had an excellent dinner in the restaurant and retired for the day to sleep away our tiredness.
Next day after early bfast we first went to Hidimaba Temple, The temple is dedicated to Hadimba, wife of Bhima from Mahabharata. No idol is enshrined and only a foot-print on a stone is kept within. Manu Temple and the Vashisht temple are also worth a visit. Vashisht is know for Hot Sulphur Water Spring and temple of Lord Vashist. Back at the hotel in the evening we warmed to a bon fire over some
drinks and light music.
Next day we were off to Rohtang pass, about 50 KM from Manali,which is a high mountain pass at 4000m, that connects the Kullu Valley with the Lahul and Spiti valleys of Himachal Pradesh. It has become a very popular summer spot for tourist as one can find snow here even in peak summers. It was freezing cold and the weather can be quiet unpredicatable here, so we were forewarned that we should leave at first hint of bad weather. We enjoyed some fun and frolic in the snow followed by some hot tea at a local joint and soon started back for Manali. On the way back we went to Solang Valley known for skiing and paragliding. Next morning we said good bye to this beautiful resort and hill station of Himachal and headed back to Delhi.
