The quieter side of kullu, perched on a wooded slope bedecked with a smattering of beautiful temples and a castle, Naggar should be your next weekend getaway from Delhi.
Located on the left bank of river Beas at an altitude of 1,800 meters (5,775 ft.), facing the great Himalayan range, Naggar is 22 km from the snow station Manali, Himachal Pradesh.
This is a place for solitude and soliloquy, poetry and art and days spent rambling through forests, glades, orchards and cute little villages which excel in traditional Himachali hospitality.
Naggar is ensconced high up in the mountains and has some of the best views to offer. Naggar was once the capital of the kingdom of Kullu in 17th century under Raja Jagat Singh. Naggar Castle, the official seat of kings for centuries, was built by Raja Sidh Singh more than 500 years ago. Now the Naggar castle is converted into a hotel.

It's all up to you how you want to travel, and what medium you choose to reach Naggar from Manali a bus or a taxi. That same implies on us, but as we are a little crazy so we decided to hire an auto rickshaw form Manali to Naggar. Ya I agree that's sounds stupid and bit uncomfortable and slow too. But sometimes it's good to go for something crazy because at in the end "the memories you made in the mountains" that's all really matters.
