Manali is a resort town nestled between the snow-capped mountains of the Pir Panjal and the Dhauladhar ranges. Manali, which is about 544 km from Delhi, is one of the most popular hill stations in the country. It serves as the gateway to Lahaul and Spiti, and Ladakh through Rohtang Pass. Manali is also famous for adventure sports like skiing, hiking, mountaineering, paragliding, rafting, trekking, kayaking, and mountain biking. Solang is the most visited place in Manali and a drive up to the valley is as picturesque as the valley itself.
