All of this goodness is noticeably accompanied by a fine view, the feeling of privacy and freedom, and the chance to explore a treasured destination that is still blissfully distant from the public eye.

Just 7 km north of Manali, this easily accessible but underrated village offers an exclusive experience of northern Himachal. It is a rare find for hikers, camping enthusiasts, and those planning an excursion to Ladakh or Spiti Valley.
Things to Do:
Go hiking: No better way to explore a landscape than through a rewarding hike, is there? The valley is lush green, mighty forested, punctuated by streams, and full of hiking trails. So pack your hiking backpack & head out on a morning when you wish to explore the hiker’s way.
Enjoy village walks: The hamlet of Burwa, although small and quaint, boasts of umpteen fine cafes & fancy houses, balanced out by the equally rural & simple lifestyle of some of its inhabitants. Get to know all about life in Northern Himachal on a hearty village walk from Zostel Home Burwa.
Explore Manali: Sprinkled with cafes, quaint houses, and vibrant markets, Manali can be called the heart of Himachal Pradesh. A popular destination for backpackers and travellers, it has an equal number of leisure and adventure activities that’ll make you want to keep coming back to the town. It is also one of the gateways to Spiti and Ladakh, India’s two desert mountain valleys.
Try adventure sports in Solang: The Solang Valley is famous for its adventurous activities. From skiing and paragliding to zorbing and trekking, there’s a lot in store for you here to pump up the adrenaline.
Visit Rohtang La: Known for its roads that cut through snow, making it look like some sort of white cave, the Rohtang pass is a great place to visit in early summers if you want to spend a day in the cool of the winter snow. You can also hike in the snow in nearby areas.
Drive to Vashisht: With a temple, hot water springs, and a mini-market, Vashisht is a small village close to Manali and only 7 km from Burwa. Enjoy lovely views of Beas, wrapped by the snow-clad Himalayas in all directions as you drive through the small settlements to reach Bashisht.
Experience Atal Tunnel: A remarkable feat by the B.R.O, the Atal Tunnel connects a lush green Manali to the rugged landscape of Lahaul Valley. The tunnel is 9.02 km long and cuts the original distance by 46 km. Interestingly, it is horseshoe-shaped.
