Hidimba Devi Temple and Ghatotkach Tree Templ will appeal to history buffs. Get outdoors at Solang Valley and Rani Nallah.

Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at International Roerich Memorial Trust, witness a stunning natural landmark at Vashisht Baths, hunt for treasures at Manu Market, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Gurudwara Shri Manikaran Sahib.
