Manali is the “Winter Wonderland” of India. The place in winters looks surreal. It’s like someone has draped an all white sheet of beautiful snow all over the hill station. Although the weather is pleasant throughout the year, one cannot get enough of this place in winters. It looks like a whole new world covered in snow. Some of you enjoy going to Manali in summers to avoid that God forsaken heat, but I for once love to visit Manali in Winters.
Getting to see those snow covered peaks in Manali in the winters have their own charm. The place looks like someone has laid a white canvas there. The fairy tale picturistic view will leave you astonished and playing with snow can get anyone excited no matter the age. So, if you are not convinced to see Manali in winters even yet, here are some reasons that will make you plan that most amazing and adventurous getaway of your life immediately:
There isn’t anyone more crazy for snow than Indians in winters. Manali is that one place where you can enjoy snow in all its glory. There are many fun and adventurous activities you can partake in Manali such as snow carting, ice skating, making snowmen, snow tubing, snow scooter rides, snow sledding, skiing, zorbing in snow and even the snow fights can make you excited. Trekking up the snow covered peaks is an amazing way to explore the place and its beauty.
The breathtaking view of the Rohtang Pass in winters is something you cannot afford to miss. The place feels like heaven on Earth. The snow covered mountains, the hot piping meals, people enjoying snow fights, the whole scenery looks surreal. It feels like you have actually accomplished something good in your life. Rohtang pass will offer you a memory you can never imagine to underestimate.
Manali gets hoards of tourists in summers in order to avoid that scorching summer heat and enjoy a pleasant weather. In winters, there are so many fewer visitors that make it a much better time to enjoy your leisure time away from the chaos and the crowd. Imagine getting to spend time basking in the beauty of nature amidst of all that snow and sun shining brightly on your head and no own to disturb you. It sure is a bliss.
The off season discount on hotels and accommodations is great in Manali. The winter season does not get as many tourists as compared to the summers, the reason being the weather does not suit everyone. So, many famous hotels and resorts that offer world class service at your doorstep are available at such a low price. Imagine getting a 5 star hotel stay with a perfect 3 course meal and enjoying the snow falling from your window with an amazing company, the scenario is totally out of the movies.
Getting to travel to such a faraway hill station is bound to make a hole in your pocket but Manali in winters is a less travelled place thus, the commuting is cheap. You often get certain discounts on bus tickets or taxis that can make you spend lavishly after getting to that place and make your holiday count. You can even enjoy those pit stops to Kullu or Manikaran Sahib and get to see those places in all their winter glory.
