People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Step out of the city life by going to Solang Valley and Vashisht Baths. There's much more to do: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hidimba Devi Temple, and identify plant and animal life at Rani Nallah.

For where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Manali day trip tool .

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Manali. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Mon) so you can drive to Shimla.
