Thick forest area very close to the market

A must visit at 2 mins distance from Mall road. There is a boat ride in a small lake, and a few slides and swings for kids.. The lush green forest make the visit worthwhile.

Responsible authorities should feel ashamed for wasting such prime location property. Entry ticket of rs. 10. it has absolutely nothing just 3-4 statues of animals 2 big rocks and 1 huge trunk of Chinar tree. located on Mall road this should have been used for much better use.

This one is very much near to mall road. It is possible to relax there. It is fully filled with pine trees and will be able to have some fresh air.

It is next to mall road, if you in manali and want to take a break from traveling then this could be a great place for evening walk. Also we took some awesome photos will local ornaments, dress and wigs (artificial hairs).

Good place to hang out with children, beautiful location close to Beas river. You can enjoy a sip of coffee and tea while sitting under/near to river, which gives romantic feel.

A lot of people miss on it but for me it was the best place to visit in manali.I spent close to 03 hrs walking there and the tranquility is mesmerising.I would suggest that when taking permission for rohtang (not online duh!),keylong,kaza,leh do visit this place nearby to sdm office.
