Manali has always been the top-contender to be one of India’s most celebrated mountain getaways. But the relentless march of urban development has made the once quiet streets, tourist infested and over-crowded. Yet, the city is an excellent base for road-trips to Lahaul-Spiti and Ladakh regions. Plus, it has the added charm of hot springs, waterfalls, adventure activities. We have the perfect solution to get the best of both – Orchard Guesthouse in Prini
A reassuring presence of experts for the adventure activities and guidance from locals is the highlight of Orchard Guesthouse. There is an unending list of things to see and do here, which the staff can help sharpen, depending on your taste. From a shot of authentic Himachali village immersion, to cycling trips, picnics with views that will leave your jaws dropped and high-adventure activities, there is never a dull day in Prini. Unless, you want to curl up with a good book and look out from the window at the breathtaking Himalayan range.
We also recommend a walk to Old Manali, where an ancient shrine dedicated to Sage Manu, still stands; the city was named after him. The streets upto the shrine may have been doused in a boho vibe with backpacker focussed cafes and shops, but the spiritual glance of the sage over the city, never seems to waver.
