While coming back from Tirthan Valley(after an awesome trip in raw nature) we had to make a halt somewhere in between since we had a small kid and I didn't want to make the long and tiring journey uptill Delhi straight being the only driver. We stopped by chance at Visco resort in Mandi and was surprised to find such a nice clean hotel with good surroundings and greenery on the mail highway itself. Since the rates were reasonable and my wife and kid liked the huge garden and greenery we decided immediately to stay for the night.
We reached there around 3pm, had a quick tea and some snacks. Kid wanted to play in the garden and slides. Being on the ground floor, we had our own share of garden too opposite Beas river(river not being that clean due to very less water in it). In evening I had beer as usual and my wife - snacks and then dinner. Food was really tasty including snacks, we almost tried everything. It is a pure veg hotel so hard-core non-veg people might want to avoid this hotel.
I will always make a halt at this hotel whenever I will go to Tirthan or Manali.
