Manali is one of the most sought-after hill stations for north Indians and rightly so. While Delhiites flock it all the year round due to its cool weather, easy accessibility and picturesque location, it is also a gateway to travellers venturing beyond into the tougher terrains of Spiti, Leh and Ladakh.
