Green landscapes, snow-capped mountains, scenic spots and several adventure destinations make Manali a favorite among travelers. In addition, the availability of all key facilities needed to improve the comfort level of travelers makes Manali an ideal place for a family Holiday. So, if you are looking to spend your long-awaited vacation in one of India's premier mountain resorts, Manali should be your first choice. Here's a list of things to do in Manali, to tell you everything you need to enjoy on a family outing in Manali.

1. Explore Buddhist monasteries

Explore Buddhist monasteries

The relationship between Buddhist monasteries and Indian Himalayas is indeed very intense and I prefer to explore the variety of monasteries present in their drawings. Himachal is home to some surprisingly beautiful monasteries, such as Gadhan Thekchhokling Gompa and Himalayan Nyingamapa Gompa, which attract travelers from all over the world. If you just want to spend your evening participating in some tourist activities in Manali, I think these monasteries should be your choice.

2. Pay your homage at Hadimba Temple

Although the Mahabharata describes Hirimba as a demon, the people of Himachal regard her as a goddess and adore her. And this is the most amazing fact that attracts most foreigners to this temple. This wooden temple is located in a serene environment surrounded by lush greenery of cedars. The details on the wooden doors and walls are eye-catching and add to the simple and quiet environment of this temple.

3. Zorbing in Solang Valley

Manali is an all-season tourist destination unlike some of the top Himalayan tourist sites. Although winter is the perfect time to play with the snow in Manali, summer is the perfect time to take refuge in mild weather. So, if you go to Manali in the summer, try Zorbing in the Solang Valley. Believe me, nothing better than staying trapped in a huge balloon and rolling over the hills without even having a clue where the ball is leading. The amount of chills, joy, laughter and shouting that you will enjoy during this time is obviously unprecedented.

4. Paragliding in Solang Nullah

Paragliding is perhaps the next adventure activity that any brave and loving family would like to do. And there can be no better place to paraglide in Manali than Solang Nala. So, I suggest you plan accordingly so that you can enjoy both Zorbing and paragliding in one place.

5. Rafting in Pirdi(Beas River)

If you're lucky enough to have a zealous family, my suggestion would be to go on an adventure to Manali. And unless you enjoy rafting in the Beas River in Pirdi, I think your adventure trip will be incomplete. Rafting is organized here by various private tour operators and starts from Pirdi to Jhiri. It's a 14km stretch that offers exciting rapids and gives you enough adrenaline rush.

6. Trek to Beas Kund

Wait and breathe! Do not worry by listening to the word "Trek". I do not suggest you choose the one you can not make with your family. The trek in Beas Kund is certainly an easy trek and believe me, a minimum of fitness is enough to make this trek. Beas Kund is about 14 km from the Solang Valley and it will take you 2-3 days to complete this trekking expedition. The highest altitude of this trek is about 3690 m and you will have to face most of the problems by crossing some streams found en route.

7. Visit the temples of Jagatsukh

If you are in Himachal and have not seen its temples, I can say that you missed something really charming. As you will be in Manali with your family, I suggest you make at least one instant trip to Jagatsukh, located about 6 km south of Manali. The quiet and composed location and the panoramic view add to the beauty of this temple. The main attraction of this village is the temple of Shiva, which would have been built around the 8th century. Buses connecting Manali to Jagatsukh take about 20 to 30 minutes to reach this temple. However, if you have time, try visiting Gaurishankar Temple, located in the village of Dashal.

8. Savour the Local Wine

Forget the usual routine you followed during a trip when you ended your family trip with a simple sightseeing tour. This time, you and your family should try to savor the local wine available in different liquor stores. Available in different flavors like grapes, apples, plums and apricots, these wines are produced locally and sipping a few ankles will not be harmful for you or your better half (better exclude children). I would advise you to taste the Rhododendron wine available at the Manu market. When you enter the Manali market, there is a small shop that sells this wine produced by governments. So, try to find it.

9. Go Skiing in Solang Valley

I know it's not always possible to go crazy when traveling with your children and half. But, I think if you both dare, just try. Go skiing in the Solang Valley and you will get the best of this adventurous activity. The Solang Valley is located on the Rahtang Pass Road and appears as an ideal ski resort in winter for the thick layer of snow covering the giant mountain slopes.

10. Shop at Manu Market

No matter where you spend your vacation, you should always go explore the local market without regretting it. So, if you visit Manali next time, do not miss to explore Manu Market, located in Mall Road. I will not say that you will get something out of the box, but yes, you can try looking for shawls or sweaters from local sellers. Also, if you are fond of crafts, take a look at the items sold at Painters Den Art.
