People visit Manali for a number of reasons, but all of them revolve around the landscape.
Hidimba Devi Temple and Ghatotkach Tree Templ are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Manali: The Himalayan Trout Fish Farm (in Haripur) and Chanderkhani Pass (in Naggar). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gayatri Temple, appreciate the views at Solang Valley, and soothe aching muscles at Pure Ganga Yoga.

To find photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Manali trip planner.

Jaipur to Manali is an approximately 11.5-hour car ride. You can also fly; or take a bus. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Wed) early enough to go by car to Shimla.

The city of Shimla spreads out across a ridge, offering views of Himalayan scenery all around.
Spend the 23rd (Fri) behind the viewfinder with Soul Mountain Expeditions. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Jakhu Temple, admire the striking features of Viceregal Lodge, make a trip to The Ridge, and indulge in some personalized pampering at Akasa Spa @ Hotel Willow Banks.

For maps, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Shimla trip builder website.

Traveling by car from Manali to Shimla takes 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
