Rope Way!! A Ride to the top Hill in Manali

Excellent view from rope way car.When I visited this place, hardly there was anyone around and we were the first family to visit the place for that day. there wasn't enough snow for us to do Ice sking and other activities. The place is good for old people and children, they can definitely enjoy the ride here to top of hill and back to down hill. The only drawback is rates are beyond expectation. Rs 500/- head is the charge and ride gets over in 10-15 minutes. So you play 500/- for 15 minutes if you don't get down on top of hill and sit there for some time. We did not get down on top of hill and returned back in the same cable car in 15 minutes.

Paragliding

Paragliding is one of the most exciting sports in the modern world, and one of the best places to enjoy Paragliding in India is definitely going to be Manali. The reason for that is not just the fine quality of the services offered here, but also the beautiful and scenic views of the valleys of the region. Clad in green, and sometimes white, the valleys as they pass from underneath your feet as you glide on will be a sight you won't ever forget.
