Solang Valley as seen on 24th December 2014

Solang Valley is a side valley at the top of Kullu Valley and lies in between Solang village and 'Beas kund' this is about 13 kms Northwest from Manali on the way to Rohtang Pass (Which often remains closed during the winter months). This valley offers fantastic views of the snow capped peaks and glaciers all year round and in winter itself turns into a absolute white zone with snow. 

The Solang valley is a favorite place for summer and winter sports like Para-gliding ( They offer Short fly, medium fly and long fly rates being US$ 25 for short US$ 50 for medium and long for US$ 100) , Skiing ( The Solang valley has a beautiful skiing slope and is home to many companies that offer skiing equipments and training courses), Horse riding, Zorbing ( A large ball holding two people inside is rolled down a 200 meters slope, nowadays this is available even in winter), Snow motor biking, Rope way. 

This place is a must visit for enjoying a day out for couples or couples with children and with family. Everyone of the family will find something or the other to amuse themselves and keep themselves happily busy for the whole day, with or without snow. There are quite a few accommodation available nearby and according to me for the more adventure loving tourists, its better staying here than in Manali.
