Shradha's 9 days trip to ManaliWe really enjoyed the tour. The tour was well planned. Our Car pilot was very polite, experienced and guide us throughout the tour. He deserves a speical mention here. Speical shout for Hotel Holiday Heaven at Manali. If you are visiting Manali try to get Hotel Holiday Heaven, the food is very tasty (veg only) and location is the best (very near to mall road). Finally the tour was only possible because of Devanuj Goel, who always manage our tour to his level best. Avoid Sky heaven resort at Dharamshala. Snow at Solang Valley at Manali.

Sudatta's 8 days trip to ManaliOverall, the trip was good. However driver assigned was not professional. At certain places there were rash drivings. Coming to the accommodation, the hotels were well chosen. Especially the one for manali and dalhousie were the best with mesmerising scenic views. However for the hotel in dharmashala, the room was not provided as agreed before the trip and we had to face a lot of issues. Overall, the trip was memorable. However, would suggest improvements in terms of assigning good drivers, since thats also an essential part of the trip. Accommodation for manali and dalhousie was too good. Solang valley visit was memorable.
Debarghya's 6 days trip to Manalinot up to the mark..foods are really not that good (non-veg lovers think twice, had only one day at dinner during the tour) for those hotels at Shimla it's just a flat type. committed fuit basket was not there on that candle light dinner.tour was at cheap but not that satisfactory.

The best time to visit Manali is between October-February, during the winter season, when the whole town is covered in snowfall. This is also the ideal time for honeymooners. Summer is also ideal for trekkers as some of the higher trek points become inaccessible in winter.
If you want to travel by air, the nearest airport is the Kullu-Manali airport at Bhuntar. You can get a taxi from there to take you to Manali. However, due to the climate, it's not the most reliable route to Manali. There are several buses from New Delhi and Chandigarh. There is also an option to drive there which goes through a very scenic route.
The local language spoken in Manali is a dialect of the Pahari language called Mandiali. However, Hindi works everywhere in Manali as well and most of the locals do understand and speak English as well.
Manali has quite a few markets that have very specific items that you can buy. At Manu Market near Mall Road, woollens are available for sale and are quite nice and quaint. There is also the Old Market that has a lot of souvenir items for sale. The Tibetan Market is a place for Tibetan handicrafts and jewellery. You could also pick up a jar of apple pickle, as it is local and delicious.
Snowfall in Manali in December, especially around Christmas and New Year's Eve, is common. It is rare to see snowfall in Manali in November or October.
