Old Manali Snow Point, which lies close to the famous Hadimba Devi Temple, is a popular tourist attraction of Manali, especially during the winter months when the town receives heavy snowfall.

During winters, hordes of tourists come to this point to enjoy the scenic vistas of the snow-clad mountains in the backdrop and the surrounding tall pine and cedar trees, and get playful in the snow. The glistening snow on the ground, snowflakes on the leaves of the trees and the flowing Beas River nearby, accentuate the beauty of the entire area.

A lot of adventure tourists prefer to come here during the months of January and February to indulge in thrilling adventure activities like snowboarding and skiing. The main town of Manali buzzes with tourists in the summer season; however, the opposite happens in winter, as tourists flock to Old Manali to enjoy the vistas of snowfall. The Manalsu River Bridge connects the main town with the old town.
