A snowy hill station in Himachal Pradesh. It is famous for its hot springs and snow-clad mountains. About 350 km north of Chandigarh.
The nearest airport is at Kullu, about 40 km. Conveniently, one can travel by train from Delhi to Chandigarh and from there one can take an overnight bus (about 10 hours). Or, one can go first to Shimla from Delhi and from there, one can reach Manali by bus(Shimla-Manali is 8 hrs by bus). Most people prefer a bus from Delhi and the same way a direct bus from Manali to Delhi.
Quite a cold place.
