Go-Pro Cameras on helmets, riding gears, Royal Enfield Bikes, let’s start riding around Manali valley with Adventure activities!
Day 2nd: Manali
You will appreciate a local sightseeing of the beautiful valley. A part of its many places of interest, Manali offers an amazing view of high mountains surrounded by snow and deep boulder strewn gorges. There are thick forests full of cool breeze and bird songs, fields of wild flowers, small picturesque hamlets and fruit laden orchards. We will visit some of the most ancient temples and villages of the region. In ancient times, the valley was sparsely populated by nomadic hunters known as 'rakshas' and some of the earliest inhabitants of the region were the 'naur' or 'nar', which is a unique caste to the Kullu valley. Only a few naur families are known to exist now. Be ready for a whole day of exciting discoveries!
Day 3rd: Manali - Bijli Mahadev - Kasol
From Manali, we’ll start riding to Bijli Mahadev,one of the most sacred temples of Himachal Pradesh. It is located at an altitude of about 2,460m and from the temple, a panoramic view of Kullu and Paravati valleys can be seen.The name comes from the fact that, the lightening (Bijli) strikes the Shiva linga (Mahadev) inside the temple and breaks it into pieces. The priest of the temple collects all the pieces and joins them together with the help of a local butter acting as an adhesive.
We leave this place full of mystery and miracles to reach Kasol, a village situated on the bank of Parvati River, where we’ll spend the night.
Day 4th: Kasol - Manikaran - Kasol
From Kasol, head to Manikaran situated few km far from Kasol only. Manikaran attracts tourists visiting Manali and Kullu to its pilgrim centres and hot springs. According to an old legend, Manikaran is connected with Lord Shiva and his divine consort, Parvati, who lost her ear rings here, which gave birth to hot waters on the bank of Parvati River. Surrounding by mountains and lush greenery, you’ll fully appreciate taking a holy dip in that amazing place. After the bath, back to Kasol. Known as the "mini Israel" in Himachal Pradesh, Kasol offers the much needed respite for young Israelis desperate for a break after their compulsory military service. With a sizeable Israeli population, it comes hardly as a surprise that the signboards outside shops are also written in Hebrew and the recent inflow of Israeli tourists has triggered mushrooming of restaurants, hotels and shops catering to their needs. Kasol is an ideal destination for backpackers, trekkers and nature enthusiasts due to its scenic valley, untouched mountains and great climate throughout the year. A little trek will be organized to Malana, one of the oldest democracies of the world and, according to a tradition, Malanawas founded by remnants of Alexander the Great’s Army.
Day 5th: Kasol - Prashar Lake
We take the direction of Prashar Lake. Located at a height of 2,730m, the lake is held sacred to the sage Prashar and he is regarded to have meditated there. With deep blue waters, surrounded by snow-capped peaks and looking down on the fast flowing river Beas, you’ll be captivated by an immense and sumptuous panorama. There you can rest soothed at the sound of the ripples of the lake or, for the more intrepid, taking a bath in its crystalline waterand after nightfall, you will appreciate to sleep in a real haven of peace and tranquility…
Day 6th: Prashar Lake - Rewalsar Lake
We begin our trip towards Rewalsar Lake, known as Tso Pema (Lotus Lake) by TibetanBuddhists. This lakeis a mid-altitude lake (1360m) located on the mountainside. According to the legend, the lake was created when the king of Mandi tried to burn alive the Guru Padmasambhava, to prevent his daughter Mandarava running off him. A view of Rewalsar town with lake from the top of surrounding hills, some Hindu Temples and Buddhist monasteries, makes a majestic panoramic appearance.
