LEISURE & ADVENTURES OF SHIMLA & MANALI
Written By Admin
CHAIL is 49 km from Shimla. The Chail Palace is well known for its architecture, the palace was built as summer retreat by the Maharaja of Patiala during the British Raj. The cricket ground and a polo ground which is there at an altitude of 2,444 m were owned by erstwhile royal family of Patiala. It is the world’s highest cricket ground. Chail is also considered as the hiker’s paradise. The area is away from the bustling life of the state capital Shimla.
THE SOLANG VALLEY is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular and impressive valleys of Himachal Pradesh. On “Mt. Hanuman Tibba Trail”, you will traverse this great Himalayan range and appreciate the sheer geographic diversity – from the verdant, forested valleys and the flowered meadows (thatch) carpeted with wildflowers. The great Maharishi Vyas also meditated here and whose journeys reflect the rich cultural history of the region. Combine this with an interest in the variety of birds, wildlife, forest and wildflowers and the opportunity to view the many snow-capped peaks such as Mt. Hanuman Tibba (5928M), Mt. Friendship (5289M), Mt.Shitidhar (5294M) & Mt. Ladakhi (5342M) and you have all the ingredients for a highly rewarding funfilled winter activity based holiday.
HADIMBA TEMPLE:- Resting on the stone platform in a dense stand of Old Deodar, Hadimba Temple is Manali’s oldest shrine. Dating back to 1553, it is a fine example of Pagoda architecture.
OLD MANALI AND VASHISHT :- Though the area has gone a very fast change in last 10 years but still the authentic charm does remain in the nearby villages of Vashisht and Old Manali, the village from which the modern Town takes its name, unlike its offspring, the settlement retains an unhurried and traditional feel.
