People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Change things up with these side-trips from Manali: Manikaran (Naina Bhagwati Mandir & Sri Guru Nanak Devji Gurudwara) and Naggar Castle (in Naggar). There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Beas River, take in the dramatic scenery at Jogini Waterfall, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Manu Temple, and get great views at Gulaba.
