Have you even traveled if you haven’t been to Manali!!!

Culture & Heritage

  1. Nako: Located on the Indo-Tibetan border, this beautiful village encompasses the amazing untouched beauty of the Himalayas. It is your opportunity to see Chango Gompa, a 500 years old prayer wheel made from Yak Skin, as well. In case you have made up your mind to travel to Nako, you can be assured that there are decent hotels and restaurants for the tourist. However, if you really want to get the feel of the place, opt for homestays instead.
  2. Manala: A few years back, BBC released a documentary on Manala, showcasing how deeply the place is entrenched in drugs. But if you could move just a bit ahead of the smoke & confusion, Manala is worth a visit! It is said that the place has a solid Portuguese influence from the past, which is why, the locals here look a bit different from Himachali-s in general. Whether it is true or not, you can find out by visiting this beautiful Himalayan village.
  3. Kardang: 900 years have gone by and the Kardang Monastry still stands strong in the foothills of the Himalayas. Located on the bank of Bhaga river, the monastery is an example of world-class Indian architecture. Behind its numerous paintings, frescos, and instruments, it holds a deep knowledge of religion & life.
  4. Chitkul: Here is an interesting piece of information about Chitkul from history. In the past, the residents of Chitkul were called Kinnaras. They were believed to be the connecting links between humans and gods. And that is how the name the Kinnaur District came into being! As it is also known as the land of deities, you could easily find temples or a monasteries at every nook & corner.
