Igloo Stay In Manali


India’s first igloo stay has been opened in Manali. Vikas and Tashi Dorje made it possible for us to be able to stay inside very comfortable and cosy igloos. Ever since this stay option was started in India, it has been a star attraction. Summer camps have already been a popular trend amongst tourists and travellers. But now since it’s the winter season, it is time for us to camp in the snow-clad mountains with very few resources, inside a cozy igloo. 

How To Book The Igloo Stay


Currently, there are 5 igloos in total and you are required to make the booking at least 15 days before your plan. You can share an igloo with one other individual on a twin sharing basis and the booking charges are Rs.5000/- for one night’s stay. The 5th igloo is the largest of all the igloos and can accommodate 4 people.

Apart from this, there is also a common room that is made at the property for the guests who arrive. They can enjoy the central heating system that keeps the room warm and comfortable. Usually, this room is used by guests to have lunch or dinner.

The Amenities That You Get


Taking a look inside the igloo, you will see a small uplifted platform where you will find your bed, sleeping bags for two, and warm blankets to ward off the cold winter winds. Further, there is an emergency lamp and a light that is electrically connected to the mainline. When the lights are out, you can light up the emergency lamp and enjoy your stay without any hiccups.
