Manali, in the scenic Kullu Valley of north Indian state of Himanchal Pradesh, is a renowned hill resort and tourist destination for its salubrious climate and natural bounties. Offering amazing vistas of snow-laden River Beas and Solang Nala, the town is also a paradise of adventure tourism for its prospects like trekking and mountaineering. Tourists flock here to gaze at its landscape laden with vast stretches of gorgeous alpine meadows and lush green forests of deodar, pine and fruit orchard.
Manali remains among the best hill resorts in India where snow-laden high peaks collide with natural beauty to lend it an unrivalled look. Natural beauty apart, Manali has other attractions for tourists to explore, and the Gadhan Thekchhokling Gompa- a small Tibetan monastery- is one of them. The Hadimba Devi Temple- visited for its striking mythological sculptures- and the Manu Temple- a place of utmost religious value- are other notable attractions in Manali.
If the Vashisht Baths in Manali attract tourists for its splendid Lord Rama temple and hot springs, then the charmingly quaint village of Malana invites for its roots and tales related to the Greeks. Naggar is a famous nearby tourist attraction which invites for its Naggar Castle, Roerich Art Gallery and Uruswati Mueseum.
