The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
Change things up with these side-trips from Shimla: Hanuman Temple (in Shoghi) and Solan (Mohan Shakti Heritage Park & Bon Monastery). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Kufri Fun World, admire the verdant scenery at Green Valley, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kali Bari Temple, and don't miss a visit to The Mall.

To find photos, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Shimla visit planner.

People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Start off your visit on the 3rd (Mon): admire the sheer force of Jogini Waterfall, then appreciate the views at Solang Valley, then contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Hidimba Devi Temple. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take some stellar pictures from Gulaba, then look for all kinds of wild species at Rani Nallah, and then take a memorable drive along Rohtang Pass.
