Manali is a great place if you are willing to escape for a week. I love it for its scenic beauty, the apple orchards, beautiful mountains and handicrafts.

The region has a rich tradition of handicrafts and handlooms which is like a treat to Shopaholics like me. Shopping in Manali itself is an experience. 
Manali, Himanchal Pradesh – Quick Tour Guide

If you are going shopping in Manali, then don’t forget to look out for interesting curious, antiques and knick-knacks for your home, and for souvenirs.

I would strongly recommend driving down to the Rohtang Pass. Remember the song ‘Yeh Ishq Haye’ from Jab We Met (Bollywood Movie), The Highway & Road shown in that song is Rohtang Pass.

You must also visit the Himdimba Devi Temple, and relax by the river flowing next to it. It’s a great spot to chill out and admire the beauty of the nature. At Model Town, the Tibetan Monastery is a major attraction. It has a good collection of Tibetan Handicrafts as well as Tibetan Paintings.

Best time to visit : April – June / September – December.

Tip : Do carry a pair of comfortable shoes, if you go trekking. And I would suggest, don’t miss the trekking experience in Manali. Its wonderful.
