The village has an exotic charm; not foreign, not entirely Indian. It is as if one have crossed into another country.Swaying eucalyptus, lovely roads, sweet little eateries, small kitschy market places, and cafes that serve your favourite continental food at unbelievably low prices, the serenity of Old Manali is only disturbed by twittering birds and the sound of the gushing waters of the Kullu River.The village is as idle as a fairy tale but at the same time it is exposed to the comfort of today’s world.The Guests Houses with cafes are important facets of Old Manali. There is only one main road and all the cafes are located along the slanting road which leads deeper into the village.There are cafes catering to different nationalities. Sitting on the cafes listening to unconventional music and talking about irrelevant things made up bulk of the day.This is a small place where all nationalities met. Everyone seemed to own this place; not any lesser than the locals. Once one go deeper from the main road through narrow footpaths one will find countless guest houses with odd names. The road leads one through apple and pear orchards. One could hear the sloshing sound of the river from distance,'babul' singing on apple trees. And from the porch one could see snow capped mountains surrounding Manali. There’s a fine balance between the globalized World and the unadulterated local population. Though the street is lined with cafes with sophisticated names such as German Bakery, Dylan Toasted and Roasted, Riverside Cafe etc. the locals still preferred living in traditional houses made of mud and woods with their cows. The uncompromising lifestyle of the villagers is what attracts tourists. One could visit the place if want to see meeting of two worlds at Manali.
