Manali is paradise-like when you leave Delhi which is scorching hot! The snow-capped Himalayas, the fresh breeze & slow life; Manali is always the perfect getaway.
Here are a few photos from our trip
We had three brief days to explore the city (again). Here’s me trekking to the waterfall, & I saw a Himalayan dog 🙂
In our second cottage, which was a little far away from the city in a village called Prini. It was blissful here, surrounded by just mountains & no tourists. A much needed alone time! More photo diaries of Paris here: http://ourvagabondstories.com/paris-photo-diary/
A clear sky day after it was raining the entire night & there was n electricity the entire night! A candlelit dinner was nice though 🙂
These cute Angora rabbits!! Cutest rabbits I have ever seen & also the softest to hold!
Hands down THE BEST Fruit Crumble We have EVER had!!! Freshly baked from the outside & warm squishy full of fruits on the inside, served Vanilla ice-cream at Fat Plates Cafe, Manali.
Wouldn’t you love to live in this cottage in the hills?! I would!
Everyone needs a break from the hectic city life, we did too! Which is why we headed to Manali during the Independence Day long weekend. Even though it was pouring heavily, but we decided to brave it! Mostly we couldn’t wait to stay at our Cute little cottages in the hills, which we found through HeyBnb. They have a 24/7 virtual front desk to handle any queries of guests at anytime unlike other online accommodation platforms. We had a wonderful stay & experience by booking through them.
For me Rishikesh has always meant two things: The Beatles & Peace! And what a great combination it is. Which is why I return to Rishikesh time & again to be rejuvenated.
If you have never been to Rishikesh, it’s a humble hill-station in Uttarakhand, India. To reach there, one can easily drive from Delhi. The drive will take around 6-7 hours; however the route is beautiful so it makes for a great road trip. Another way to reach is by train to Haridwar & then an hour drive to Rishikesh. It’s best to visit here from October- February, as in summers it gets hot.
