Eternal beauty

When you visit Manali, you can also cover Naggar as it is just 20 KM before Manali. You can see beautiful mountain ranges from here. The best place to stay is Naggar Castle which is build by king of this place. There are several other places in Naggar to visit, for example Roerich art gallery, Temple for which you need to do little but enjoyable trekking. On the way one can also see few beautiful waterfalls. Food is good and you can ask for some local foods, red rice and sepu badi one can try. The best time to visit are the months of March-June and then September-November. In March-April while sitting in the balcony of the hotel, you can see very beautiful view of snow cap mountains in moon light. This can be a mesmerized experience. Finally it is better to keep some warm clothes as many times the weather changes suddenly. To reach this place one can either take volvo buses for Manali from Delhi or one can come to Chandigarh and then take a taxi or bus. There is one small airport at Kullu, but due to bad weather most of the times flights get canceled. So the best way to reach is by Volvo up to Kullu or Manali and then take a taxi or ordinary bus.
