Kullu-Manali This entire region is famous for the
opportunities it offers for adventure sports.
The adventurous could try their hand at :
- Heli-skiing at Hanuman Tibba, Rohtang Pass, Deo Tibba and
Chanderkhani Pass near Manali
- Para-Gliding at Solang
- Mountain Biking
- Rock Climbing (Beas Kund region and the lower reaches of Hanuman
Tibba and Deo Tibba)
- Sports like White water rafting on the Beas are also very popular.
Manali, because of its location and proximity to
high peaks is probably the best take-off point both in terms of number and
complexity of treks as well as trekking infrastructure.
The Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports of the Mountaineering
Federation of India, operating from Solang Nallah, offers not only
equipment, but also beginner and advanced courses in mountaineering and
permission for expeditions to scale peaks in the region.
