Solang Valley, about 14km from Manali, is where all the adventure activities happen all round the year. While it’s a major skiing destination in winter due to all the snowfall, in summers, it’s a hub for sports like paragliding and zorbing. Located near the banks of the river Beas, Solang Valley is a must visit if you’re on your way to Rohtang Pass from Manali.
Of all the adventure activities that you can do here, paragliding is the most thrilling. With two jump stations – on a lower and higher level – this adventure offers a scope to fly over the lush valley quite literally like a bird.
Gondola Or Solang Valley Ropeway
To access paragliding from the higher level, one has to take the gondola or the Solang ropeway ride. Though it’s not exactly an activity on its own, the short journey up the mountain in the state-of-the-art cabin is worth experiencing.
This ones slowly gaining prominence; where you roll down the hill in a transparent ball. It can be done alone or with a loved one, and is a super fun activity to do in the lush green hills of Solang Valley in summer.
Riding an All-Terrain Vehicle or an ATV in Solang is a complete adventure experience. You can choose to go with a trained driver, or on your own if you’re a seasoned biker yourself. It’s usually a three-wheeler or a four-wheeler vehicle that goes on low-pressure tyres creating a fun momentum for the rider.
The charm of a good camp is absolutely unparalleled. Cozying up in a tent pitched right in the middle of lush green meadows, with a barbecue fire, good music and the stars for company – is stuff dreams are made of. Depending on the altitude, you can choose to amp up the glam quotient by carrying luxury camping essentials.
