I spent some time at this beautiful sukna lake …it was awesome to see people boating and enjoying there.

Day 2 :- we left for the lovely city manali . It takes 8 hours to reach manali from Chandigarh as it is 310 kms. You can get a bus from there for 450 INR.

Manali is an amazing place to chill and stay for 4-5 days we were for 1&1/2 days because leh was our destination!
