The 14 kilometre drive from Manali to Solang was totally worth it when I reached the start point of the ropeway that takes one up in Solang Valley. It just got better with every passing minute. As I the cable car started up the hill, I saw views that I won’t ever forget. It was almost as though I entered a postcard. Upon reaching the top, I encountered breathtaking views like never before. The snow top peaks majestically soared and the alpine slopes covered with confers together made it magical. One feels like they’re in wonderland.

One of my best trips happened a few years back. We were 5 friends on a trip to Manali and we wanted to see Solang Valley. That day, there was a snow storm and most of the taxis refused to go till Solang Valley. So we rented some ATV (all terrain vehicles) and went to solang valley. It was really beautiful, completely covered in snow. We did skiing and paragliding over there and it was a lot of fun. Solang Valley is Highly recommend
