I came into Manali this morning and I can tell you one thing – summer is in full flow here in Kullu! Just looking at the Beas river and feeling the cool wind blow across one’s face, gives a sense of relief from the summer heat. And then there are people who decide to walk down to engage with the Beas – like these folks who are having a good time with their rafting, getting sprinkled with the cold water of the river as the raft makes it way through the rapids.
There are several stalls all along the Kullu Manali Road where professionals are all set to help tourists enjoy this sport in a safe environment. The costs vary according to the distance one desires to raft (from Rs 500 to Rs 1200 which is quite reasonable I would say). If you are planning a trip to Kullu and Manali, make sure rafting is on your itinerary. (Better yet, give us a call at The Mountain Walker and we will custom-tailor the itinerary for you :)).
