The property is owned and built by a passionate traveler, and his passion reflects in every corner of the resort. It took him 6 years to build the property to the perfection of his vision and the result is over whelming. ShivAdya resort looks like a Himachali palace at first glance, and I fell in love with it after I experienced it more.
Himachali Architecture of Shivadya Resort, Manali
Right from carving the wood and stones to raising 3 structures on wooden pillars, everything has been handmade. A lot of local artists and labours were employed to bring ShivAdya up.

Nature Trails Around Shivadya Resort, Manali
1. Nature trail to view Kullu valley at the sunset.
It was a short hike that took me through the forests and a water stream.
2. Hike to the waterfall through Apple orchards
Another hike started from the backyard of the resort through the apple orchards, where I met locals who were working in the orchards.
3. Nature trail through river and villages
The third day's hike showed me more beautiful elements. Trouts are found in this part of the river Beas. A rustic wooden bridge led me to a village which had apple orchards and mustard fields.
