I had read so many good things about the Himalayan and although I was staying elsewhere, I made it a point to visit the resort.... am so glad I did.

I visit Manali twice every year and as always I choose The Himalayan as my home in the mountains. It's only getting better each time I stay here. No doubt this is the best resort in Manali and possibly in Himachal Pradesh. Europeans will especially appreciate the quiet location, high quality interiors, cleanliness and tasty food. The rooms have excellent...

The hotel is well appointed at an elevation, rising head and shoulders above...
