Skip the maddening crowds and enjoy a walk down the serene nature trail under hundreds of towering Deodar trees. The Nature park has two entrances, one near Rambaug chowk on mall road and the other near the old Manali bridge. If you start from the Old Manali bridge end, it is a pleasant walk downhill along a paved pathway to the mall road. Don't forget to check out the last of the beautiful Monals in the small zoo in the nature park.

A trip to Manali is incomplete without a visit to this 13050 ft high mountain pass around 45 kms from our place in manali and 52 kms from the mall road. Renting a snow dress for Rs.250/-from the scores of small shops lined along the Rohtang highway is a good idea to keep dry and warm. Don't forget to carry extra memory cards for your camera!
