We at HYTA, pioneer in Manali for Canyoning. Our aim is to allow others to discover this beautiful region without disturbing neither its landscape nor its deeply spiritual population. And talk about fun! Challenge yourself in ways you’d never dreamed of. Plunge down water polished chutes and abseil down waterfalls. Jump off cliffs!
