The most beautiful things are always hidden…

‘Solang Diaries- Manali ’ sits pretty on the banks of the River Beas at an altitude of 8,500 feet above sea level.  Nestled in an offbeat place away from the chaos and noise of the crowded tourist spots

It mirrors the beauty of Solang Valley and has been designed keeping in mind the beauty of nature in the surrounding grandeur. The Beas marks its rhythm as it flows next to our luxury home stay while the Beas Kund glacier watches over in its rich splendour. The magnificent Dauladhar range provides a mesmerizing backdrop to experience the glory of nature in the lap of luxury.

Solang Valley is a changing watercolour of landscapes from gushing waterfalls to pristine snow-covered magic as the months turn their pages. Summers paint the valley green and the Beas murmurs its happiness as it winds in plain sight. Autumn carpets the entire landscape with the blazing oranges and reds of the Chinars changing colour while winters blanket the valley with snow that can pile up as high as a full grown adult. The night sky remains a delight, a canopy of stars that brings back magic and wonder to tired minds even as it comforts. Waterfalls take birth almost overnight with the onset of monsoons and are visible right from Solang Diaries.

Solang has become a favourite destination for adventure lovers looking for a thrilling experience. Try many adventure sports such as snow skiing, snow scooter, snowboarding, heli-skiing, sledging down the slopes and ice climbing. To provide a cherishable experience to our guests, we arrange for these adventure activities. Please note that snow adventure activities are seasonal. Except for the monsoon season, patrons can enjoy paragliding and river rafting, all through the year.

More than anything, ‘Solang Diaries’ is a place that you chance upon and the more you explore it, the more forgotten pleasures you discover. A barefoot morning walk to the nearby trails and riverside, an impromptu picnic, afternoon naps by watching snow capped mountains, reading a book in our comfy sitting area, undisturbed but for buzzing bees, trekking, doing nothing… are all part of the unforgettable stay here. Away from the stress and the chaos of city life, with its comfortable stay, fresh home-cooked food, simple natural attractions, tranquil but mesmerizing views, ‘Solang Diaries’ is perfect for a long stay or a weekend getaway.
