“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world”, wrote John Muir, an avid mountaineer and naturalist. Tall Trees Resort is one such world.
About 15 kms before Manali, and away from its hustle-bustle, the Tall Trees Resort is bordered by the fast-flowing River Beas on one side, and a hundred-acre pine forest on the other. With soul uplifting views of the majestic snow-capped Pir Panjal range of the Himalayan mountains, there is no other resort in or around Manali that can rival the sheer beauty of the Tall Trees Resort.
The Tall Trees Resort offers chalet-style wood-and-stone-balconied cottages that blend beautifully into the surroundings and Swiss-Tents – both luxury and comfort – that are located a few minutes walk from the cottages through leafy woods and pitched metres from the rippling River Beas. Whether you seek a holiday of quietude, the soothing sound of wind rustling through the trees and the rich scent of pines, or an adventure-sports type holiday, with visits to nearby revered temples, or to high mountain-passes, The Tall Trees Resort offers a truly world apart and unforgettable holiday experience.
