People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Pandoh Dam and Manali Picnic Spot and Camps. When in Manali, make a side trip to see Naggar Castle in Naggar, approximately 1h 10 min away. The adventure continues: contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, admire the verdant scenery at Solang Valley, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hidimba Devi Temple, and take in the natural beauty of Vashisht Baths.

To see photos, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Manali trip builder tool .

Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.

The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
On the 23rd (Sun), admire the striking features of Viceregal Lodge, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kali Bari Temple, then don't miss a visit to The Mall, then see the interesting displays at Annandale Army Heritage Museum, and finally stroll around Annandale Ground. Here are some ideas for day two: appreciate the history behind Monument Rani Jhansi, then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Kufri Fun World, and then don't miss a visit to Mohan Shakti Heritage Park.

Plan my Shimla trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can drive from Manali to Shimla in 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. On the 25th (Tue), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive back home.
