"Not so good"

6 days ago
I heard lot about Manali but I was disappointed with this place.
There is a heavy traffic jam everywhere, we end up spending 90% of our time in jam.
The mall road is too crowded and not so clean.
Also, roads in Manali are too pathetic, with lot of potholes.
There is a serious need to pay attn to travellers otherwise people stop visiting.

2 weeks ago
An excellent place to visit... But nobody can escape from Traffic Jam...
You get lot of adventures activities to do. That will be an unforgettable event for you.
But The local government should work towards widening of Roads or construction of Flyover bridges to get rid of Traffic Jam...

"Mesmerizing Manali"

3 months ago
Manali is a beautiful city with snapped mountains all around. We visited this location last week end of march 2017 and the climate was very pleasant. Just half an hours drive will take you amidst snow points which the children can enjoy playing in the snow. Need to bargain well with horse owners as they charge huge amounts for short distances which can be trekked on foot as well. Even jumpsuits available on hire on the way to snow point are 250/- while it's only 100/- at the snow point itself. Better to carry snacks and water so you can enjoy for a longer time.

"Manali a worth visit"

3 months ago
Visit Manali in any time through out a year, it depends on how you are travelling or which type of traveller you are it depends on whether you are going for trekking or visiting or you are just travelling for family fun. So you need to choose accordingly and yes if you need snow, I mean a lot of it then surely visit in the month of december/january. You shall have the best and also be able to find the hidden paradise on earth. For shopping I went to th mall road. Its really beautiful but thing are neither too high nor too low in price so be careful. Finally my last advice is to be ever woolen ready and be ready for uncalled natural calamities. You may get all those during winter visit to Manali.
