there is nobody except locals who will be with their girlfriends or prostitutes, if you are going with family please dont go. at the riverside you will find bunjee wire knotted with 2 big rocks and you can pay 250 per person and enjoy the ride.

One visits places like Manali to get away from City life and then encounter even worse traffic and vehicle fumes. Van vihar offers a respite to walk and get fresh air when in the city. Ofcourse, better is not to stay within Manali limits but slightly off.

Its literally a walk in the park. Located right on the mall road. Can be easily skipped. Nothing much to see here. You can spend that time instead in shopping on the mall road.

There is not really anything to do except for walk in park or trains that has been created. Though convenient to visit since it is really close to the mall and you can jump over to the banks of river beas and have some relaxing time.

This is good place to spend some time with your family. You can do lot of activities like boat ride, jungle walk. i would recommend, if you get time keep Van Vihar Park in your Manali trip schedule.
