Manali

Manali ©
People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hampta and Beas Kund. There's much more to do: admire the sheer force of Jogini Waterfall, contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, take in the spiritual surroundings of Siyali Mahadev Temple, and see human ingenuity at work at Pandoh Dam.

Plan my trip to Manali with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by car from Shimla to Manali takes 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to go by car to Kullu.
