Manali
The Beauty of the Beas
9607 people have seen this

What started out as a pleasant Monday in August, quickly metamorphosed into a packed week of hectic activity.  Client meets, drawings, estimates.. Three of us in the design dept. decided to go on a long stress buster drive from Delhi to Manali – Himalayas.. yet again.. yes, this is going to be the second getaway in less than 30 days!

It was a 14 hour drive from Delhi and we reached Manali very late in the night and got into a hotel close to the Mall. We did dinner at Johnsons' Café and the trout was excellent. 

The next day, we took an early morning stroll on the Mall road, visited the Hadimba Devi temple and then we were off to Rothang snow point. 

The winding mountain road along the Beas river is truly a sight to behold.

The pass had a lot of snow and already there were a lot of tourists trying out the snow scooters.. some playing with snow balls and others building snow men.. We did our share of snow mobile rides and then opted for a leisurely lunch at a ‘maggi’ shop in the snow. 

At 13,100 feet, Rothang pass is the principal road connecting Lahaul-Spiti valleys and Ladakh with the rest of india.  They are now building a 9 km long tunnel under Rotang La into Lahaul- Spiti.

Up there in Rothang, it was getting crowded & full like a bazaar. You could get anything from maggi to T – shirts. On the return, we stopped over at Solang Valley – The sporty spot in Manali.

We got back to our hotel in Manali by evening and bit on the chill pill for the rest of the day.  Tomorrow would see us taking a leisurely ride back to Delhi.
