From Delhi to Manali - it takes around 12-15 hrs (depending on weather and stoppages you take on the way) to cover distance of 550 Km. Once you cross Mandi - you may come across many breathtaking views.
Must see places in/around Manali
1. Manikaran: around 80+ km from Manali (30 km from kulla)
2. Rohatng Pass: You need to start very early to avoid heavy traffic (as early as 3.00 am): If you have any breathing problems, take doctors advice as this visiting there can have serious problems.
3. Solang Valley: around 7-8 km from manali - good place for kids as you have lot of activities
4. Nagar Falls: Between Manali and Kullu (through Nagar road), nice place
We stayed at Snow View Hotel. A Good place (right on the Mall Road) with good food.
