People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Take a break from Manali with a short trip to Hot Water Spring in Kullu, about 1h 45 min away. Spend the 22nd (Sun) exploring nature at Van Vihar National Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, admire the sheer force of Jogini waterfall, admire the verdant scenery at Solang Valley, and have some family-friendly fun at Club House.
