People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Relax by the water at Spas and Hidimba Devi Temple. Manikaran Gurudwara and Solang Valley will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Sri Guru Nanak Devji Gurudwara (in Manikaran), Naggar (Chanderkhani Pass, Tripura Sundari Temple, & more) and Kullu (Jagannathi Devi Temple, Jagannathi Temple, & more). There's lots more to do: hunt for treasures at Manu Market, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Siyali Mahadev Temple, contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, and head outdoors with Rohtang Pass.
