  • Q. Drinking laws

    In Himachal Pradesh the drinking laws are not strict. The legal age for drinking is 18 years.

  • Q. Things to do in Manala:

    • Take a walk by the river Parvati: This is among the must-have experiences in Manala. Parvati river that flows through Manala is perhaps one of the cleanest and the most beautiful rivers in the whole of India. There is no other experience that you will enjoy better than this. Take a nice, relaxing walk by the river Parvati or even indulge in exciting adventure activities such as camping, river rafting and many other water-sports made available by the agencies operating within the vicinity.

    • Go on a trekking trail to Kheer Ganga: Kheer Ganga is merely located a few kilometres away from Manala. If you are the kind that thrives on adventure and love yourself some great adrenaline pump then this is one activity you must take part in. There are several facilities that organize groups and take them through appropriate routes to Kheer Ganga. While you are on your way, you will discover the beauties of nature – the kind you may not experienced ever before.

    • Shopping spree at the local market: Another important, must-have experience in Manala is to shop at the local market of the place. You will find yourself with endless options of expansive, ethnic and hippie products – ranging all the way from clothings to food and furniture. Take a souvenir home for the sake of remembrance of this beautiful holiday destination.

    What will you like in Manala:

    • Take a long walk to Tosh: Another popularly visited place by tourists who visit Manala is Tosh. The experience is greatly similar to the kind you will get at Manala but you must definitely tick this off your check-list. Maybe even go on a drive to Tosh and enjoy the clear skies. Stop on your way to sip on some good tea or coffee and feel one with the nature.

    • Try the Israeli food at a local stall: What better way to truly experience the essence of a certain holiday destination? Manala is sprawled with tiny, simplistic stalls that sell Israeli food for people. This may not be as good as the food served at high-end hotels and resorts, but it sure is something that you must try out at least once before you leave Manala. You won’t find yourself disappointed, that is assured.
