Manali 101

In spite of the peak tourist season and untimely rains we managed to have fun in Manali.
Sharing some of the sights and finds through images taken from my phone.

Washed blue skies just after a shower.

My picture perfect postcard from Manali

Endless glasses of ginger tea while watching the rain sitting at a roadside cafe

Oh so sweet mountain dogs....

People cafe in old Manali - Great place to find people backpacking from all over the world

Colourful felt beads catch my eye on a roadside stall

pretty glass and shell decorations at Jhonson's Cafe
Lazy dog - great ambience, location and logo, another place to find world travellers

Textile stories - the kullu shawl

Woman in traditional wollen shawl called Pattu

Early morning scene of woman bring fresh produce to the market in her plastic basket modelled on the traditional bamboo basket
Farm implements, baskets, produce and seeds being sold in the farmers market close to the main bus stop

pretty rose gardens everywhere

Fresh trout at Jhonson's Cafe....highly recommended

View from our room at Jhonson's.....blissful

Hello Aditi ji,

I was going through your blog and found very interesting. My this post is a little selfish in nature. Actually there is a image (Textile stories - the kullu shawl) I really liked and want to use in my website as a banner, dedicated to Kullu Shawls. To be honest it's a semi commercial website because I want to use for promotional purpose for my business in future so I would like to know if you can allow me to use this image. I can also pay a small amount if that's needed. Please let me know.

Raman Sharma,
