Small bridge over Manalsu river and a steep road seperates Old Manali from the Manali town. The contrast between the two is evident once you cross the bridge and drive into the rural environment of Old Manali. It is distinctly laid back, charming and has less touristy feel when compared to the new "Model Town" of Manali. Old Manali remains the preferred option for western backpackers and long stay guests. Apart from the many charming guesthouses, Old Manali also houses many of the famed restaurants and hang-outs.
