The Original name of present Manali Town is “Dhana Agha” which is still prevalent amongst the old generation. Manu, the creator of human beings in this universe, lived here and wrote ”Manu Samriti” a treatise on social code of conduct for all human beings. It is also called the first Constitutions of Hindustan. Therefore, the name of this place where manu landed was kept as “Manu-Alya” which means abode of Manu. However, with passage of time Manu-Alya is now pronounced as Manali. The original place where Manu landed is now called old Manali and Manali town as Manali.
The Ladakh is known for its extreme deserts, blue waters, freezing winds, glaciers and sand dunes. Ladakh is a region of India, which is totally isolated from the modern world. In Ladakh the nature has rendered a magical, unbelievable and fantastic landscape that is extremely breathtaking. The people of Ladakh are generally quite different from those of the rest of India. The faces and physique of the Ladakhis, and the clothes they wear, are more akin to those of Tibet and Central Asia than of India. The Original population may have been Dards, an Indo-Aryan race down from the Indus and the Gilgit area.
The upper most alpine region of North India’s the ethereal cold desert that goes by names such as ”The Last Shangrila’, Moonscape, little Tibet and so on. Nestling in the lap of the dazzling, snow-capped Himalaya, the Kashmir valley is undoubtedly a jewel in India’s Crown. Two major Himalayan ranges, the Great Himalayan Range and the Pir Panjal, surrounded the landscape from the north and south respectively.

SPECIAL NOTE: Please note that this is an outdoor and adventure trip and to enjoy such trips, one requires being reasonably fit both physically and mentally, along with a previous experience of outdoors. On the other side the trips are carried out in some of the most amazing and extraordinary locations and in very special times such as winter and at the same time they do provide a bit of challenge to our endurance, fitness and our ability to cope with some adverse conditions. Though we will provide the best equipment and manpower, and do our best to leave no stone unturned. But still before taking up this trip we want to make very clear that nothing is certain in trips like this. Such as bad weather and cold and other logistical uncertainties such as power cut and water supply cut etc. Though we will try to do our best to provide water by buckets and lights by solar batteries etc. but still before signing up one should be experienced enough to carry himself or herself in outdoor conditions and well aware of these uncertainties and hence cooperate if any such situation arises due to the reasons beyond human control.
