People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Visit Tripura Sundari Temple and Siyali Mahadev Temple for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Rani Nallah and Spas. Change things up with these side-trips from Manali: The Himalayan Trout Fish Farm (in Haripur), Ram Temple (in Vashisht) and Naggar (Naggar Castle, The Urusvati Himalayan Research Institute, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gurudwara Shri Manikaran Sahib, take an in-depth tour of International Roerich Memorial Trust, explore the activities along Beas River, and see Off-Road Tours.
