People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Kick off your visit on the 20th (Sat): take in the spiritual surroundings of Hidimba Devi Temple, then contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, then appreciate the views at Solang Valley, and finally soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the natural beauty of Vashisht Baths, examine the collection at Museum of Himachal Culture & Folk Art, and then step into the grandiose world of Naggar Castle.
