Manali – An abode in itself is surrounded by the majestic peaks and is known to be a paradise for adventure tourists and bag packers. Its charismatic “global village” atmosphere makes it a year round magnet.  Countless bag packers hang out in the hippie villages around the main town. Adventure freaks come here to indulge in nerve-wracking activities like trekking, mountain biking, canyoning, paragliding, rafting and skiing etc. Enthusiastic trekkers consider Manali a gateway for amazing treks like Rohtang Pass, Leh or pristine Lahaul-spiti, to name a few. It definitely makes sense to unwind, feed up here and get mesmerized by the amazing vibe this city has to offer.

If you want to take pleasure in the country side of Manali, The Orchard Guest House by Himalayan Eco Lodges is an ideal hideaway. In a mere distance of 3 kms from Mall road, Manali, this beautiful guest house is meant to leave you completely mesmerized.

If you want to wake up to a relentless orchestra of birds chirping around , majestic view of apple orchards , clouds knocking at your window and a brilliant vista of snowcapped mountains – and if I tell you that you don’t need to move even an inch from your bed to witness this!

That would be your definition of Heaven right? 

The Orchard Guest House, Prini by Himalayan Eco Lodges makes you experience such dream like script and when you look down from your balcony, you see spreading beneath you the Apple Orchards. 

The guest house is harmoniously proportioned with a living & dining room and a fireplace downstairs while the bedroom, bath and balcony being upstairs. The rooms are basic, neat and a bit too colorful in contrast to the sedate mountains outside. With the captivating views of snowcapped mountains right in front and a chance to sit amidst the apple orchards, who’d want to stay indoors for long?

But before you head out, don’t forget to ask the cook about the veg and non-veg delicacies they offer. If you are also fond of simple but tasty delicacies, I would personally recommend them to you.

Himalayan Eco Lodges believes in providing you with an experience, you can cherish for the rest of your life rather than a stay to boast off. I loved my everlasting conversations about the culture of Manali and Manali sightseeing with the humble and helpful house crew. And how can I forget to mention the precious moments I shared with the local kids. 

 I would love to travel back in time to play around with the kids in the green valleys and apple orchards of Manali. Do make memories in this paradise, the ones that you would cherish for the rest of your life.
