After whom was this village named?

It is said that King Gulab Singh of Kashmir camped here during his invasion of China and this village was named Gulba after him. In winters, there is snow everywhere from November to February. When Rohtang Pass is closed due to heavy snowfall, Gulba is the best option for skiing enthusiasts. High mountains covered with snow, the Beas river flowing through them and lush green meadows add to the beauty of this place.

How to Reach Gulaaba

How to Reach Gulaaba

Gulaba is about 12.5 kms from Manali. It can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 1 hour to reach there. But it depends on the road, weather and traffic conditions. Now the question is how to reach there? So if you have a car then it is best! But if you don't have a car, it is okay too. Private taxis or cabs are easily available. If you are fond of travelling, you can rent a car or share a passenger taxi. On the other hand, Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) buses go directly to Gulaba from Manali city. They also go to Rohtang Pass on the way. So this is also a good way to travel on a budget!
