People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Get some cultural insight at International Roerich Memorial Trust and Gayatri Temple. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Spas and Chanderkhani Pass. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Manali: The Himalayan Trout Fish Farm (in Haripur) and Tripura Sundari Temple (in Naggar).
