Day 1 continued


Paragliding in action
4524-0  8332-1  4528-2  4530-3  4532-4

On our way back from Solang valley
 4534-5  4536-6  4538-7  4540-8  4542-9

It was now around 3:30 pm after noon and it started to get cold again and the mistake I did was to remove that space suit after having Maggie and coffee we got back to the car which was 2-3 kms away .On the way it was very slippery and one can see people getting slipped on Ice and then you have to control your laughing nerves. Now we were very tired at that time and we decided to move back to hotel skipping the local sight seeing. But our helpful driver told us that he can show us local places on third day without taking extra rent on Day three. So we moved back to our hotel around Eight and called it a day.

Day 2 : It was another cold and bone chilling morning, as usual we were damn lazy and then around 10 our driver again needed to do the needful to get us awake. We took another hour to get ready and our driver, now a friend, was very kind enough to bring us a hot tea and an omelette to eat and around 11:30 we were in our cab for our day -2 journey and we were fresh and ready to roll. On day-2 our destination was Gurdwara Manikaran Saheb, which is 80 kms from Manali. It is popular for Natural hot boiling water streams along with freezing cold water on other side. You can imagine the hot temperature of water there by the fact that rice can be prepared in that boiling water. On our way, I got to know about two very interesting places, one was Malana, It is a Dam for hydroelectric power generation. Our driver told us that many foreigner trek there and also its a place where one can find weed very easily. On some distance from Malana there is a place called Kasol which is a place where many foreigners stay because of its close proximity to Malana. But the time of year when we happen to visit that place not many were there. So around 2 we reached Manikaran Saheb gurdwara. It was a very pleasant place. One can see the steam coming from hot water from quite far distance. Generally in cold places I prefer to keep my self away from even a drop of water. But had to wash my hand before entering a holy place. After getting blessings we had our lunch in Lunger(hindi/punjabi term for holy buffet). Around 4 we left the place and started back to Manali. On the way there is a Vaisho Mata temple near kullu I forgot the exact name of place, and that temple is fantastically maintained and built. No photographs were allowed inside the temple. So if you are visiting Manali-Manikaran route don't miss that temple. After visiting the temple we did some shopping from kullu. There is a government shop for handmade items where one can find verieties of shawls, woolen items at reasonable rates. While we were busy shopping one of my friend fell ill, we straight away headed for a doctor. My friend was having a fever of 103 at that time, Doctor gave him some medicines and then with One person down, there was nothing to do so we went to hotel room. But again we realised that our hotel was at very nice location, there was a cinema hall called Piccadilly(I dont know if i spelled it right) where we decided to spend our next 3 hours. We brought a ticket for 9 pm show and went to watch a movie ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’. The movie was not good. So I preffered to sleep around intermission and that's how my day 2 ended.

Day 3:

Now day 3 was the day to explore the city. So our friend and cab driver took us to the main attractions of Manali. One of the most visited place locally in Manali is Hidimba Temple and it was the first in our list then he took us to some complex and for us urban crowd it was not of much attraction to us, it was like some old mall with few rides here and there. So, we didn't spend much time there. but the way to that complex was awesome. A stretch of road was fully snowcovered and we needed to walk to cover that stretch. After visiting these places we came back to main market(Mall road) of Manali and had a lunch and in the evening, our Volvo to Delhi was waiting for us.


So not much of the writing is there for Day 3, below are some pics from our last day at Manali:
