  • Trip introduction

    Set in the middle of the apple orchards of Prini, this 3 day lodge stay in Manali is 3 kms away from the main city, and lets you experience the fun of a popular mountain getaway without the crowds. From the lodge, you can walk out into thick snow, where you can build snowmen, have a snowball fight, or build castles in the snow. You'll be provided with snow tubes to try snow-tubing down the snowy slopes. You'll also be driven to Hampta Valley or Solang Valley to explore the iconic snow vistas there.

    Apart from all this, you can visit Manali or Naggar for sightseeing, to visit the famous hot springs, or to do some shopping and try out the Israeli and Tibetan cuisine in central Manali. If you're in the mood for extreme adventure, there are activities like rafting, paragliding, river crossing, rappelling and rock climbing, all payable on the spot.
