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 Beas River and Solang Valley. Popular historic sites such as Hidimba Devi Temple and Manikaran Gurudwara are in your itinerary. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at International Roerich Memorial Trust, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ghatotkach Tree Templ, identify plant and animal life at Rani Nallah, and examine the collection at Museum of Himachal Culture & Folk Art.
