10 Night 11Days
Leh Manali Bike Trip is through ups and downs over high passes due to largely treeless rain shadow. Ladakh looks attractive because of the classic Himalayan view. It has huge khaki-colored valleys and big rock walls. They look good by the occasional light of green fields. Traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture remains attractive here since beautiful monasteries break into life during dance festivals but they have changed little in over 500 years.
This contains everything an adventure lover wants. Activities like epic treks, sparkling high-altitude mountain lakes, and even well-developed backpacker designs based around the capital, Leh.
Manali is known after the Sanatan Hindu lawgiver Manu. The Manali came from the word ‘Manu-Alaya’ which accurately means ‘the abode of Manu’. Legend has it that sage Manu stepped off his ark in Manali to recreate human life after an excellent flood had deluged the planet. Manali lies the North of Kullu Valley. The ‘Valley of the Gods’ is another of that valleys. An ancient temple dedicated to sage Manu in old Manali village.
The British introduced apple trees within the area. No Apple trees grew within the area, then the British found primary groves near patlikuhal. To the present day, apples alongside plums and pears are the simplest sources of income for the bulk of people here. Colonizers introduced both Rainbow and salmon Trout into the rivers.
With the increase in disposable incomes and somewhat due to the rise of disturbances in Kashmir within the late 1980s, Manali witnessed a surge in tourist traffic. This village was once quiet but now transformed into a busy town with many homestays also because of the occasional boutique hotel. During the hotter summer months, cafes and restaurants are often seen doing brisk business.
