Manali has always been the top-contender to be one of India’s most celebrated mountain getaways. But the relentless march of urban development has made the once quiet streets, tourist infested and over-crowded. Yet, the city is an excellent base for road-trips to Lahaul-Spiti and Ladakh regions. Plus, it has the added charm of hot springs, waterfalls, adventure activities like rafting, zorbing, snow scootering, rock climbing and temple hopping. We have the perfect solution to get the best of both – Orchard Guesthouse in Prini. A guesthouse, that has many adventures planned right from the doorstep, lies smack dab in the middle of an apple orchard and is a stroll away from the best rajma-chawal shop in town.
