Photographer's Note

14-km northwest of Manali is the Solang Valley, this place offers Himachal Pradesh's best ski slopes. The Mountaineering and Allied Sports Institute operates a 300m high ski lift and the month of February is the best month to ski over here. The best time to visit Solang Valley is from May to October.

We had been there in the first week of April mainly to avoid the crowds. In that aspect we were successful, but the views were not the best. Neither the valley was covered in snow, not it was full of flowers.

There were patches of snow here and there as evident in the photograph, and the rest was slushy and slippery. Walking right up to the end was a tough task. Even the grass had not started growing properly.

However, took a few photographs and made the most of our trip. Spent a full day there, sitting on the ledge from where river Beas can be seen.
