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 Spas and Beas Kund. Change things up with these side-trips from Manali: Manikaran (Sri Guru Nanak Devji Gurudwara & Naina Bhagwati Mandir), Naggar (Tripura Sundari Temple & Naggar Castle) and Kullu (Jagannathi Temple, Raghunath Temple, & more). There's lots more to do: take a memorable drive along Hampta, explore the activities along Beas River, admire the verdant scenery at Parvati Valley, and take an in-depth tour of International Roerich Memorial Trust.

To find where to stay, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Manali tour itinerary website .

Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
