We were unaware that in Manali we will be receiving another spell of snowfall. All the mountains, roads, cars everything was covered in white. We visited 4000 years old Vashisht temple - 3.5 KM from Manali dedicated to Sage Vashisht and hot springs. We spent some time there to explore this place and majestic views of the Himalayas which have just received fresh snowfall early this morning. One interesting place just behind Vashisht temple is Jogini waterfall. We wanted to visit but due to snowfall, the road was all covered under snow and it was not possible for us to go there.
Later we went to Hadimba devi temple - an ancient cave temple dedicated to Hadimba Devi, wife of Bhima, a figure in the Mahabharata and ghatotkach temple in Manali. These temples are surrounded by cedar forest called Dhungiri Van Vihar at the foot of the Himalayas. Later in evening, we visited Mall road Manali and Tibetan Buddhist Monastery - nice place to visit.
P.S. Don't buy Kesar (saffron) in Manali !!
