Great Himalayan National Park with its abundance in both flora and fauna provide with some of the most spectacular views. However, Great Himalayan National Park or GHNP is not necessarily clubbed with a trip to Manali. Ideally, Great Himalayan National Park will require a few days on its own.
Located near Manali which opens several options for adventure. It is less crowded than its adjacent places. A perfect place to relax in the lap of nature away from the busy city life to explore your inner self.
A very small town with very less number of recreational activities compared to Manali.
For religious people as it has lots of ancient temples to explore. For family vacations and for adventure junkies.
