    • Trip to Himachal

      Return Bus journey was very hectic because of the bus booked by Assure trip. Seats of bus were not at all comfortable considering the journey of 14-15 hours. Also the condition of bus was not good. I am not satisfied with assure trip because of this Bus and also they had not properly communicated with Hotel management. Further, I still not got ₹500 cashback which Assure trip promised. Mini Switzerland was awesome and also the Kwality restaurant's food was delicious.

      Overall excellent trip planned on short notice.......baring aside the payment issue they had with the driver (he said the travel agency didn't pay him so he will have to stop the trip on last day). The issue was settled in few hours. Manali and solang valley trip Both Hotels were with a awesome view

      It was a nice trip! However i do want to mention that Travel Triangle agent wasnt much active and I had serious doubts before going on the trip, unlike my last TT trip where the agent was very proactive and supported me to plan my trip. Anyway, the selected agent i.e Tanish Tours and Travel managed my trip really well. The resort stay was comfortable, served good food and staff was helpful and polite. The cab driver was also very polite. Overall a good trip and we enjoyed our stay.

      After reaching Shimla there was a little bit inconvenience as we had to travel another 50 mints by cab to reach the hotel after our overnight journey. But apart from that we had a fantastic experience. The hotel in Manali was superb we had a three star experience. Though the car provided to us was Alto which was not that comfortable the driver was really a nice and helpful guy and guided us in a proper way. Overall the experience was really nice and the agent Ms.Rennam had properly coordinated the trip.

      We enjoyed our trip with Guruji though there were some communication barrier with our cap driver who can not speak English but things could be eventually solved out. We have faced unexpected problems during our visit to Manali; one member lost her purse and passport and the other got a stray dog bite while walking in downtown. But with our skilled and supportive driver despite limited English, my friend's passport could be located and eventually being picked up on the way of our next destination to Amritsar, thanks god. The member who got dog bite could reach to the public hospital in Manali for treatment. So thank you to Mr. Mukthiar, the driver, for the good job. I also like to thank you Avinash and Rehka for their support and fast responsive to our questions and needs from the beginning through our itinerary. I will definitely come back and choose Guruji Travels for our next trip.

    FAQ's of Manali

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    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. 

    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.

    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. 

    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. 

    There are quite a few options to go trekking in Manali. The most mainstream yet one of the best treks is the trek to Hampta Pass. This trek is ideal to see thick pine woods and serene valleys.Tourists of all ages can go on the trek to the origin of the river Beas, also known as Beas Kund

    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.
