      We had 4D and 3N stay in partriage hotel resort in manali and this was the most memorable trip. The best thing was the nature and greetings given by the owner of the hotel mr and mrs negi. We had very comfirtable and good stay there. Another most important and good thing is the food which we got. Its really good and you can't expect such hygenic home type food outside. They are always ready to prepare/cook extra items (if available) on demand as you might find less food items. In our case it was enough because you can't eat many things in such a place where temp alway be negative. They also guide for local sight seeing by giving suggestion as per their experience.

    The Triund trek is suitable for most people. It is an easy trek of 11km with an uphill trek of 4-5 hours.

    Paragliding at Bir is quite safe. Just follow the instructions properly. Do ask your para-pilot for his license to make sure he is an expert. However, no adventure activity is 100% safe.
