The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
Jakhu Temple and Prantika are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Kufri Fun World and Naldehra Golf Course. There's much more to do: make a trip to The Mall, examine the collection at Annandale Army Heritage Museum, admire the landmark architecture of Viceregal Lodge, and learn about all things military at Army Herritage Museum.

People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.

Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: cruise along Rohtang Pass, identify plant and animal life at Rani Nallah, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hidimba Devi Temple.
