High on the east side of the Kullu Valley, sleepy Naggar was once capital of the Kullu kingdom and is perhaps the most charming village in the Kullu valley. Unlike rest of the Kullu valley’s major town located by river Beas, Naggar is ensconced high up in the mountains and has some best views to offer like Naggar Castle, the Roerich Museum and other stone and wooden Temples. Russian painter and explorer Nicholas Roerich liked it so much he settled here in the early 20th century. It's an easy day trip from Manali, but with interesting sights and fine walks including the Chandrakani Pass trek to Malana in the Parvati Valley, and some good guesthouses and restaurants, it's a fine place for a few days' Peaceful and relaxing stay. You should explore Naggar on foot there’s no better way. There are several chai shops (Tea shop) where you could rest your feet and guzzle tea or apple juice, the signature drink of Himachal.
