Things to do in Manali


Manali: the name itself makes the adrenaline rush and raises the urge to quickly jot down all the
mandatory items and head towards the cool mountainous ranges to enjoy the winter vacations.

Manali by name gives us a thought about the ranges and the trek to be carried upon. But in actual, there are yet
more places to go, there are yet more activities to carry out and far more sceneries than you can imagine.

One easily gets carried away by the most obvious places mentioned everywhere on internet but in actual, there are many other tasks which one can execute once they are in the laps of Manali, the heaven for mountain lovers. Such authentic scenes are present in the arms of this peak which one could witness and even a non-nature lover cannot miss to take a whole-full of.

Manali, the snowland

Brightest skies to the lowest temperatures, silent echoes to the loudest melodies, craziest adventures to the calm ventures, all packed in one full place. This is what Manali is all about. You could spend the whole day without your phones in your pockets and still not care about it. That’s the beauty this place beholds in its landscapes.

Here, Hiway Cabs brings to you the most wonderful creations of God and lets you heave a sigh of satisfaction after seeing the jaw-dropping sceneries one could only see in the images over Google.

Skii Fun

# Skiing is the first thing you could tick off the list: When you are in Manali, all you could see around is a layer of Snow with flakes pouring down at a subtle speed and a heartwarming level. This itself is so picturesque that you don’t mind to stare at it for hours. However, when you have varied adventures to try, you should begin with the ‘Skiing’.

The slopes of Solang Valley and Rohtang Pass offer you the most simple and easy paths to try out. You could begin with the sample moves over the snow and learn it with time.

When you are on a trip, you must carry first aid kit and a piece of comfortable sporty footwear which assist you to begin the journey of Skiing and then master it after certain levels of practice. Also, you could find many training institutes and well as trainers who charge according to your experience and assist you to master this sport in a short span.

Obviously, it’s solely upon your interest to control what is there in your hands and legs. But yes, there needs to be a one who can guide you when you are amateur to this sport.

Cool Cool..

# Two places which you must visit are the Solang Valley and the Rohtang pass, which you
should not miss in any case. These places are a must visit when one comes to Manali on a trip. Heading 14 km to the north west of Manali town, this is no doubt one of the best tourist attractions and is a home to very huge number of visitors every year.

Travel and work should go hand in hand…

 “Work and Work, that’s how we work today..!!”

In this 21st century, there are hardly any souls who don’t work for a living. Sometimes, it is a business or 9-5 office job. But whatever the work they pursue, they make sure to get engrossed in that work. This work should earn them a handsome amount for a living.

Ultimately, money does have a say.

So with this busy routine, no one actually gets time to look at the natural beauty and grab a mouthful of its admiration, travel and explore the world. After a hectic job, one craves for a long bed, a light-hearted movie being run on the wall and yummy food being put in the mouth. With food stuffed in the belly, eyes shut down and laid in a cozy bed, nothing else is required to sleep for hours and hours.

But within those few hours, we know we have to live the same routine again. Break from work and travel to a new place seems a fantasy.

Leave Your Footprints Behind. Go Travel.

Get up in the morning and work hard for your living. How mundane can this life become at times. We cannot leave our work and working hard is a problem at the end of the day.

Why not find a respite from this schedule and give yourself a break?

This break necessarily needs to be a one where you get to know to new people, fresh environment and different aura. This becomes a break for your soul. And, yes my friend, this break is none other than a travel journey. This journey need not to be an adventurous one. It might mean taking out a trip to a new place as an excuse for attending a friend’s wedding or an office assignment, or going to visit a family relative or a distant friend.

Each travel means taking a break from the normal schedule of your busy life and heading towards something new. But these trips aren’t too easy to plan when you are a working soul and hardly have time for yourself.

Work is always on the top of the list.. Go Travel.

Work is always on the top of the list.

How easy it is to plan these trips and not imply them when it comes to going?

Yes, that happens with each one of us.

Planning happens at the back-end of your head and implying needs you to be in sync with it. And that is where problem is. Family becomes a constraint or work doesn’t allow you at times. But there comes a point in all our lives when we realize, while leaving from work, that it is enough.

Now I need to forget the tension of my office work for a while, the code might not be bug-free but my head should be, the rebuke from my boss can wait for few more days but my mind needs a break today itself.

That is how you know you ought to plan a trip and go ahead.

Planning isn’t a rocket science and you just need to decide the place. With technology readily available, you just make use of every upcoming app on your phone and with a few clicks, all the bookings are done in a moment. HiWay Cabs helps you book your cabs to all the places in a moment and plan out the schedules for you at your accordance.

We can postpone the work for a while and keep all the tasks aside. Because we need much more trips.

So to balance out the stress and the work pressure, one needs to be in a state of mind to do so. Hence, we must plan the trips accordingly and make them worth memorable. The trips offer your life a pause state where you think about other upcoming issues and are able to grasp those better. With a mind devoid of any work stress, you think a little more, care a little less and enjoy all the more.

Again, a fascinating part of the travel is the journey you have to cover.

It’s even more exciting when the journey is supposed to be a long one and you choose to drive, obviously when it is a road trip and you know your companions well.

Teasing each other in the weirdest way possible, spilling out their shady secrets which is totally unexpected, putting the most craziest of songs at one moment and soothing at other on the player, discussing ‘what-more-to-visit -if-time-allows’ plans, re-planning the adventure are some of the highlights of a long journey. The companions somehow turn into a group of good storytellers at the end of a trip.

Discussing what to carry along and how to move ahead on a trip, a quote strikes me: ‘What a trip can offer you, is an offer you treat yourself with.’ So we should never miss a chance to take out time and go out with it. The flow comes back to its place in terms of your professional life, if you give yourself a break. The pause from the long- running routine is a necessity in these days.

You get to know how to play well in your present and future.

These travels revitalize your soul, taking you into some other world altogether, failing to recall the usual crowds around you. These interruptions from the work, however long or short, positively are a must to take, making you reconsider about your life and letting you enjoy the aesthetic dominions of nature. When you travel, you learn to appreciate the small things which you otherwise fail to notice.

Explore the world. Go Travel.

Explore the world

This clearly states that with your work at the topmost priority, you sometimes need to get a distance from it and work on other aspects of your life. The best example is to take a break and travel to a new place. This helps you to perform better, both in terms of your professional and personal world. This is how you need to go on with handling all the issues at a pace as it comes. This is possible only when you are in a state to grab those. Yes, that’s why we need to learn why trips are necessary. Also, we should plan in respective to our work life.

Travel and work should necessarily go hand in hand.

We all know these trips bring you closer to the companions on the trip. It enhances the family ties and intensifies the bond among you. And if it is a solo trip, you know where you are going wrong. What specific areas of your life need improvement. These trips not only give you a chance to calculate the affection among your kinships’ but also lets you to build a fonder one.

So take a break, give a pause to the fast-moving life and move out with a grace.
