“Wonderful and Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Manali is blessed with wonderful and beautiful gift of Mother Nature in the form of River Beas. Irritated by the chaos in Manali one finds happiness, peace and bliss in the lap of Beas. At every step it is fresh and thrilling. In the back ground of mountains and forests it presents a wonderful scenic beauty which is seen only in Manali..

“Rafting Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Rafting was an excellent experience like icing on the cake in the Manali trip. The cold water raft bath is a must do.

“A must do in Manali-Kullu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This is a must to do thing when you are in Manali.

Location - you need to drive back towards Kullu (for around 30 kms) to reach the starting point of rafting. It will take an hour easily from Manali

Booking - there are many agents sitting on the way from Manali to Kullu. You need to speak with few of them to get the right prices. Yes, you need to bargain hard. The advantage of getting through the agent is that the raft will be ready by the time you reach the rafting spot


Price - we were 5 people and they charged us Rs 1200 (for all 5 people - 9kms strech). We were clear that we will need two rafts, as 2 people went once and the other took care of kids. In the second raft (which was shared with 2 more external members), the other three members went

Experience - its a great experience for someone doing rafting for the first time. The chilly water adds to the experience. The rafting guys will bring you back to the starting point in their vehicle.

Time - it takes 20 mins to cover the 9 kms strech and another 20 mins to get you back at the starting point. There is a cafe at the starting point as well.

However, I didn't find it as good as the Rishikesh rafting experience.

“The lifeline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

You wont miss the river if you are going to Manali. If you are travelling in a bus from Delhi, you will experience the river right from Mandi till Manali. There are some amazing and breath taking views between Pandoh dam and Aut tunnel. Make sure that you are awake to see them. Also, don't miss rafting in the river. Rafting is recommended right at the point where you enter Manali. That's the place where the river is at its best

“Follows you all the way to Manali”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Awesome sights all along the route to Manali. If you love water, Beas will fascinate you. Do take a minute to sit by the river and enjoy the serenity.
