  • Trip introduction

    Manali is a popular tourist destination at any time of the year, but during the winters, it takes on a dreamlike quality. Snow covers the ground and turns the pine groves white, and the sounds of this bustling hamlet are muffled. On this adventure, you'll explore some of the most iconic landmarks around Manali.

    You'll trek up through Solang Pass, with wide vistas of snow-covered terrain all around. You'll visit some quaint Himalayan villages, meeting the locals there. You'll also visit the famous Hadimba temple, Jogni waterfall, and Vashisht hot springs, and all this, with the gorgeous snow-capped peaks around you.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trip. It requires a minimum of 4 pax for a booking confirmation.

    Destination

    Manali offers you a mix of great views, winding trails, pine grove walks, and good food. In the winter, you have the added fun of seeing the snow-covered landscape, building snowmen, and having snowball fights.
