Event Description

Manali is situated in the upper Kullu Valley on the banks of the river Beas. The picturesque Kullu valley is drained by the Beas river and fringed by the Pir Panjal range to the North, Bara Bhangal range to the West and Parvati range to the East. The weather varies dramatically over different regions of the Himalayas. Summer, mid March to end June, known as the pre-monsoon season, is one of the best times to trek and climb as there are long days of nice, pleasant weather. The snow lines are quite low early on in this season as the winter snow just starts to melt.

Did you always dream of playing in the snow to your heart's content? Here is your chance to do exactly that - trek in the Valley of Snow, make a snowman and have a snow fight and slide... This is one of the most beautiful treks in Manali. On your way up, you will be trudging through forests of pine and rhododendron, making this a 'fragrantly' unforgettable experience
