Clearly visible from the left bank of Manali, Mangankot is an ice cream scoop shaped feature on the Old Manali mountain. The trail follows the route of the gushing Manalsu Nullah initially and takes us through thick Pine and Deodar forests. Clearings in the forest afford spectacular views of Manali town as we gain height and leave the valley floor behind. Gaining a height of nearly 3000 feet, the forest suddenly gives way to a gigantic glade cloaked in a wide variety of wildflowers in the spring and lush green grass through most of the year. A rarely trodden hike, it is the perfect spot to escape the Manali crowds and take in the expansive Pir Panjal views.
