Wonderful time spending place for 2 hours. Its like filling your time gaps in shopping and visting various Places in manali. You can take short breaks here and fill your lungs with fresh air. Lot of children activities here to keep them busy. you can also enjoy boating. You will be disappointed that there are no real life animals there.

This park will provide you a much needed break after sightseeing for a whole day. I think the ticket costs around 10 RS, don't remember actually. But a walk in the park is worth a 100 bucks. You can find solitude! while going down you can see river Beas. A nice park where you can enjoy few minutes of solitude.

This is a small but incredibly beautiful forest right in the center of Manali. It's kind of like a fairytale forest with tall deodar trees reaching for the sky. It makes for a wonderful walk not far from most hotels in Manali where you can connect with nature and breathe deeply with mossy fresh air.

Located right in the ceentre of city on The Mall, the Van Vihar (meaning jungle stay) is peaceful and connects you to the Beas River. Entry is with a small ticket. It is a popular picnic place for locals and tourists alike. There are swings and other games for family to enjoy together.
