People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Start off your visit on the 30th (Sun): hunt for treasures at Manu Market, see the interesting displays at International Roerich Memorial Trust, then step into the grandiose world of Naggar Castle, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gayatri Temple, and finally contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Himalaya Nyingmapa Buddhist Temple.
