About the property:
The name of this boutique resort is inspired from the local language of Lahul. La signifies that which is above, Ri, the mountains, and Sa means the earth. And everything at LaRiSa, high in the mountains, feels like it’s come from the earth, just like its name. Orchards stretch out in seemingly endless waves of apple trees. Cottages of stone and wood blend seamlessly into the landscape. And a bounty of flowers, vegetables, beans and herbs grow in the garden beyond. Everything feels blessed, as the songs of birds and crickets harmonize. And this retreat, in the middle of nowhere, seems the perfect place to find yourself. In a garden along the eastern fence of the boutique resort, chillies and herbs spring up. The beans, tomatoes and peppers take some coaxing but their taste makes up for the effort and patience involved. The vegetables growing here are a treat for all five senses.The gardener merrily shares the secrets of growing such gorgeous greens. The basil-scented air tempts everyone, and you find yourself picking vegetables for your next meal even if you’ve just finished one.

Larisa, the boutique resort, was born near a little village called Haripur. It is about 11 km from Manali, and 35 km from the airport at Bhuntar, Kullu. There are not too many trains running through the Himalayas, but if you still prefer to take one, a train to Chandigarh and a taxi onward is the easiest way to get here by rail.
La-ri-sa is about 550 km from New Delhi, driving along the Grand Trunk Road and NH-21.
