When we began planning a route through India, Manali was high on our “must visit” list. Though not a major city by any means, Manali has been highlighted more and more as a stunning destination. Located high up in the Himalayas, Manali is a hill station, adventure sport capital, and outdoor wonderland.
One of the best things about Manali is that it offers something for everyone. Thrill seekers come for the large variety of winter adventure sports. Photographers hike for the stunning nature views. Many come to escape the bustle of India’s city life, and some end up staying for good.
In Manali, everyone feels like family, masala tea is guzzled more often than water, and people prioritize mindfulness and leisure. Not convinced of a visit yet? Here’s our top 10 photos of Manali to try and persuade you.
