Manali means "Home of Manu". Manali has derived it's name from the name of a mythological character, Manu who is supposed to have survived when the whole world was drowned in flood. He then came to Manali and recreated human life.Thus, this area of Manali is sacred and Hindus treat the temples over here as pilgrimage.
For those yearning for both adventure and comfort at the same place, Manali is the place to be in. Manali has abundant opportunities for sports lovers and also provides soothing touch to those who seek peace and break from daily chaos. It is the place where one can indulge in self-introspection. There are many villages in Manali and each village has its own deity. Hence, Manali is also known as the valley of gods. Rich in fruit orchards and pine groves, Manali offers quite a few places for sightseeing. Manali is also famous for adventure sports. There is an interesting legend that speaks about how sage Manu recreated human life after floods had devastated the world. The Kulluis in brightly patterned puttoos, Tibetan women wearing ankle-length rainbow-striped pinafores, Buddhist monks, are a common sight in Manali.
Manali is famous for adventure sports like skiing, hiking, mountaineering, paragliding, rafting, trekking, kayaking, and mountain biking.One can do river rafting on the Beas or trek into the Himachal hills from here. Rock climbing courses are conducted during the summer months and skiing at Solang and Auli during the winters.
