An exciting new sport, Canyoning is a cross between rappelling and caving into waterfalls. Canyoning offers a journey under an open sky into deep forested pools. Plunge down water polished chutes and abseil down waterfalls. Jump off cliffs! Climb, swim and float through an amazing world of water- sculpted rock, deep clear pools and spectacular waterfalls.WHERE
Manali valley has abundant rivers and waterfalls. The canyon is situated in Vashisht on the Kroni River. The starting point of the canyon is a 25 minute walk high above the village, with a descent of approximately 3 hours.
We, at Himalayan Yeti (HYA) are experts in Canyoning. Moreover, our aim is to allow others to discover this beautiful region without disturbing its unique landscape or its deeply spiritual population. The canyon will show you an entirely different, inaccessible face of the Kullu valley, allowing you to follow the ancient routes taken by pure, crystalline water.
You need to report at our office in Old Manali at 9 or 10am

Himalaya, with its pristine mountains, rivers and forests is known as the “abode of the Gods”. It is therefore our responsibility to maintain the natural glory of these mountains and make it a place of endless delight for travelers and residents alike. A few easy to follow steps will help you to contribute in making this effort a success.
1) Plastic stays: It is one of the least degradable substances, resistant to the effects of the sun, wind and rain. When you leave a plastic bag or bottle in the quiet picnic spot that you and your family enjoyed, you may very well find it there when return a few years later, an ugly spot on the landscape. The State of Himachal Pradesh has banned the used of polythene/plastic bags and you can be fined for using them, while you are in the Sate.
2) Litter: Do remember to take your litter back to the hotel or dropt it in the conveniently placed dustbins. Don’t leave it lying around.
3) Noise: One of the prime attractions of Himalaya, is the quiet of the mountains that invite you to linger. Need we say….
- Please don’t blow your vehicle horn unnecessarily or play blaring loud music as you drive.
4) Vandalism: Nature intended trees and rocks to remain unmarked by human beings. Nor were our monuments intended for graffiti written by some young wit.
- Do not scratch your name or write message on trees, rocks, mountains or monuments.
5) Respect: Please treat the mountains and the people with respect and you will be pleasantly surprised at what both can give back to you.
Last, but not the least….. Enjoy yourself with responsibility.
Leave nothing, but Footprints……
