Adrenaline junkies should not miss a trip to Solang Valley, an adventure sports hub both in summer and winter. Go skiing on the valley’s vast, sprawling slopes, or “zorb” downhill in a plastic sphere when the snow melts. Enjoy the picturesque scenery, filled with verdant valleys and snowcapped peaks, as you take the cable car up to the summit. You can try your hand at paragliding and horseback riding, or just explore the area by foot and get in touch with nature.

Words are not enough to explain the beauty of Solang valley, it was away from the city and offered everything that we need to spend a whole day with snow. We hired a taxi from.Nehru kind bridge and reached Solang in less than 30 minutes, as there was a snow fall last night and the crowd was a bit less compared to the normal days. There was fresh snow everywhere we could enjoy every minute. We took a cable car to reach the top of Solang valley and the view from the top was majestic. Snow, snow and more snow is what we could see everywhere, the view of Solang village and the snow capped mountains was splendid, unfortunately there was no paragliding due to the heavy snowfall. But there were other snow activities, there were a lot of eateries around where we ate good lunch, sitting on the road side shops and having Maggy looking at the mountains was amazing in experience. There was a restaurant at the top of the mountain, but they were not accepting any upi or cards, but only the cash. So we had to come down by afternoon as My mom was there with me and she wanted to have some hot tea and lunch. Also, the washrooms were not operational, they charged 650 for the cable car to go to the top, but hasn't kept any good facilities which one can use. I did a hike for about 2000 meters, and returned as the altitude was high. We clicked some good pics below the mountains, played in the snow, tried skating and came back with a lot of memories for life. Overall it was heavenly beautiful and we loved every second we spent there.
The best part about this place is its route from Manali to this place. Beautiful route with views of the stunning snow cladded mountains and the greenery with river alongside. Prefer a two wheeler if possible to enjoy the route to the fullest. The place is overall good with some good views. It has some good options for street food (Maggi etc.). You can also try your hands at paragliding here especially for beginners as the starting height may not be too high. It gets very much crowded here which might steal the overall fun in being at this place. But do travel here for the route. :-)
