Traveling and exploring new placing gives me great escape from the hectic life. For my work purpose, I need to meet various clients depending on their availability. Most of the clients meet at the office but certain clients want the meetings at their office which gives me an opportunity to travel to new places. This time the client meeting was planned at Manali which was my dream vacation spot for many years. I was very happy and excited for this client meeting that was at Manali.

Exotic stay at the hotel:
On reaching the airport I hired a cab to drop me to the pre-booked hotel in Manali. The Snow Valley Resort provided a 4-star accommodation. The surroundings of the hotel were amazing as the pine forest covered the maximum surrounding area. This resort had bright interiors, luxurious rooms and offered good services. The hotel provided all the necessary facilities that a traveler requires during their stay to make it more comfortable.
The entire trip to Manali was excellent starting from the plane journey and then the scenic car route. The hotel was also luxurious. I preferred to stay in the standard room which was comfortable for my stay. This resort is best to spend some quality time during their trip for work or leisure.
