Any Holiday to Manali, a famous mountain town of India, is incomplete without a trip to Manikaran. Manikaran, in the Parvati Valley, is home to the popular Gurudwara (Sikh temple), Manikaran Sahib, the place also has a few Hindu Temples. Most travelers take this scenic drive along the beautiful Parvati River and after crossing Kasol , a backpacker village, reach Manikaran. But instead of turning back if you continue along the river, the road ends at a village called Barsheni. A couple of kilometers trek takes you to one of the most beautiful places in this area, Pulga. Pulga is a small ancient village with a breathtaking view of the Himalayas. A lot of foreigners frequent Pulga and stay their in guest houses or just pitch tents. Food is not a problem, there are plenty of eating joints. Pulga is fast becoming a camping place for children and families as well, since it is so close to the road and a easy walk through the pines. On your next trip to Manali do ask Road2Travel for information on trek to Pulga.
