The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to The Ridge, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Shimla Christ Church, admire the landmark architecture of Jakhu Temple, then don't miss a visit to The Mall, then admire the striking features of Viceregal Lodge, and finally explore and take pictures at Gaiety Heritage Cultural Complex.

People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Spend the 22nd (Wed) exploring nature at Van Vihar National Park. There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, take in the dramatic scenery at Jogini waterfall, take in the spiritual surroundings of Ram Temple, and scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour.
