I have always been an avid lover of wildlife and never missed the opportunity to visit one whenever I go for this kind of long trip. After exploring a large portion of the Great Himalayan National Park, it was time to further explore the unique range of flora and fauna with a visit to the Van Vihar National Park Manali.
The Van Vihar undoubtedly plays a major role in attracting tourists from different parts of the world. It is situated at a favourable location beside the famous Mall Road. On entering the National Park, we could see that it is full of different sizes of deodar trees which offer shade for the entire region. One of the unique features of the Van Vihar National Park Manali is the presence of wooden and concrete benches where visitors can sit and have a gala time while exploring the same.
We spotted many people who were there for enjoying picnics with their family members. We also came across many young couples and love birds enjoying the beauty of the lush green fields with the snow covered peaks in the backdrop. There are numerous paths which travel through the dense forests and are extremely ideal for strolling in the middle of dense green forests. We had to pay a very nominal fee of Rs 30 each in order to enter the Van Vihar National Park Manali.
We also got the opportunity to enjoysing boating for around 15 minutes and my kids were overwhelmed on hearing that. The National Park remains open from 8 in the morning to 7 in the evening during the summer while the closing time is advanced to 5 in the evening during the winter.
There is no doubt about the fact that the Van Vihar Manali is certainly a great way of spending quality time with friends, families and loved ones. We captured a lot of pictures as the sight of the large number of species of flora and fauna still remain etched in our memory. The Van Vihar National Park Manali is also known for its exclusive range of indoor games and swing rides.
