Manali is reputed to be an attraction for backpackers and is India’s honeymoon capital. Sitting between the snow-blanketed slopes of the Pir Panjal and Dhauladhar ranges, it offers gorgeous views of verdant green forests, meadows, and meandering aquamarine blue streams. Kullu, also known as the “Valley of the Gods,” is a true gem in the state of Himachal Pradesh’s crown. With a total area of 547 square kilometres, its beautiful landscapes, friendly locals, and rich cultural history have long attracted tourists. Kullu lies about 40 kilometres from Manali. Manali is a charming hilltop destination surrounded by splashing rivers and vast mountain ranges, in contrast to Kullu, which is a valley bursting with numerous scenic sights and apple orchards.
