One day, Varvasvata, the seventh incarnation of MANU found a tiny fish in his bathing water. The fish told him to look after it with devotion as one day it would do him a great service. The seventh Manu cared for the fish till the day it grew so huge that he released it into the sea. Before departing, the fish warned Manu of an impending deluge when the entire world would be submerged and bade him build a seaworthy ark. When the flood came, Varvasvata and seven sages were towed to safety by MATSYA, the fish which is regarded as the first avatar of Lord Vishnu. As the water subsided the seventh Manu’s ark came to the rest on a hillside and the place was named MANALI (2050 m) after him. As the flood slowly dried, here arose a place of breathtaking natural beauty which was only appropriate at Manali that life began again. Today this legendary cradle of all humankind is a prime holiday destination. There are high mountains surrounded by snow and deep boulder strewn gorges. There are thick forests full of cool breeze and bird songs. There are fields of wild flowers, small picturesque hamlets and fruit laden orchards.
