Manali, also known as the Valley of Gods, said to take its name after Manu who stepped on to Earth from his Ark after a deluge and recreated life on Earth. Located at the northernmost end of the Kullu Valley at a height of over 6700 feet, Manali is as charming a hill resort as you will find anywhere, even more so because of its unique location and culture.
