The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Hanuman Temple and Naldehra Golf Course. Get outdoors at Himalayan Nature Park and Jakhoo Hill. Explore Shimla's surroundings by going to Craignano (in Mashobra), Central Research Institute (in Kasauli) and Solan (Jatoli Shiv Temple & Mohan Shakti Heritage Park). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kali Bari Temple, view the masterpieces at Image Art Gallery, see the interesting displays at Annandale Army Heritage Museum, and take in the awesome beauty at Kufri Fun World.

People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Mon): take in the spiritual surroundings of Himalaya Nyingmapa Buddhist Temple, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gayatri Temple, then explore the activities along Beas River, and finally scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour. Here are some ideas for day two: identify plant and animal life at The Himalayan Trout Fish Farm, take an in-depth tour of International Roerich Memorial Trust, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Tripura Sundari Temple, and finally step into the grandiose world of Naggar Castle.

Drive from Shimla to Manali in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Wed) to allow enough time to drive back home.
