Manali is a tourist town nestled near the northern end of the Kullu Valley in the Beas River Valley in the mountains of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It is located about 270 km (168 mi) north of the state capital, Shimla, 309 km (192 miles) northeast of Chandigarh and 544 km (338 miles) northeast of the national capital, Delhi, in the Kullu district.
In the area, the British introduced apple trees. The British founded the first apple orchard near Patlikuhal, before which no apple trees had grown in the area. Together with plum and pear, apple remains the best source of income for most inhabitants to this day. The settlers also introduced both the Rainbow and Brown Trout into the rivers and streams of the area.
Manali has seen a flurry of hydroelectric power and tourism-related activity. Unplanned and rampant development has resulted in extreme forest degradation and river body contamination, along with waste being disposed of on the side of the mountains. Various species of fauna have lost their habitat, not restricted to the Himalayan Monal, the state bird of Himachal Pradesh, incidentally.
Places to visit in Manali
Valley of Solang, Manali : Two totally important destinations in the itinerary are Rohtang and Solang Valley while going to Manali for a holiday. The Solang Valley, 14 kilometres northwest of the main town of Manali, is one of Himachal Pradesh's most popular tourist destinations. Situated on the way from Manali to Rohtang, the valley welcomes tourists in large numbers every year.
Solang valley is a popular sport here during the winters, with training institutes and trainers located in the valley to supervise skiers and train beginners. Skiing is taken over by Zorbing when the snow melts. You are likely to spot a big transparent ball with mostly two people inside it rolling down the slope during summers, another common attraction of Solang Valley, taking advantage of the slopes of the valley.
Rohtang Pass is a favourite among the group of film directors due to its splendid natural beauty. Many of the blockbusters were filmed here, ranging from 'Jab We Met' to 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.' A curious truth behind the name of the place is that it was named so because, when attempting to cross this treacherous stretch, a number of people employed in CBRE died.Without a sledge ride, which involves sliding through the snow on a wooden toboggan, a snow experience can never be complete.
