After a good night of sleep we went for a walk through town and especially the mountain villages. We saw a YAK which is a sort of mixture between a big cow and a sheep. An amazing animal but paying 50 rupees to sit on its back and make a picture was not our cup of tea.
We both bought some warm clothes, Aron a jacket and shoes and I bought a thermo shirt, gloves and a winter hat which are really necessary here in this cold weather
Apart from Aron’s paraglide adventure and our Zorbing ball crazy idea at the Solang Valley we were exceptionally busy with arranging an Indian SIM card. What a shitty administrative process, unbelievable. However eventually it worked and I am reachable again.
- The best (cheapest) guesthouses are in Old Manali they say but we found one for half the price only 50 meters away from the bus stand. The Blue Heaven Hotel is recommend for 250 or 300 Rupees.
