Again, not exactly off-beat, but if you’re really looking for a typical Goa-kind-of-Manali experience, you cannot miss out on this. Plus Old Manali promises an array of activities that will certainly not let you down. Lined with little motels and cafes, tattoo studios, bakeries and shops that sell everything from junk jewellery to hipster pyjamas, Old Manali is a little bohemian village that is only a short walk from ‘New’ Manali. Unless it’s an emergency or it’s heavily pouring, please do not make the mistake of driving to this area. The walk to Old Manali has its own charm, through the middle of a forest laid with Pine and Eucalyptus trees, and the sound of Beas gushing in the backdrop.
