Do you enjoy getting wet in the rain? If yes,
then you would enjoy during monsoons in this jewel of Kullu. There are risks
here when you visit the rather vulnerable town in monsoons, but we can also
recommend a few places if you happen to be there. The best thing you can resort
to is to avoid travelling a lot because of frequent unpredictable landslides
and dangerous situations. But we do have in mind that the traveller in you,

Places to visit:
Museum of Himachal Culture and Folk art – This is perhaps one of the most popular

attractiveness as a prominent tourist location has increased it has been made
into a heritage hotel.
Manali Gompa – This spiritual locale serves as a pilgrimage centre for
Buddhists. A colossal statue of Lord Buddha has been erected here and tourists
come in hordes throughout the year to eye this wonder. The pagoda-styled
monastery also has some visually appealing paintings that showcase the
teachings of Lord Buddha.
The international Roerich memorial trust – This fascination is just too apt for the
monsoons because of its location on the lovely hilltop overlooking vegetation.
The location is the former house of a noted Russian painter called Nicholas
Roerich. The house has been beautifully and thoughtfully designed with
exquisitely done private rooms and well-chosen paintings to brighten up the
Activities to pursue:
We do not recommend that you set out your foot in
the rain because of the associated risks, but for bikers, you can take part in
the Brahmand tour organized for passionate bikers to take and seep in the stunning
landscapes and breathtaking destinations. For those, who have no such passion,
you can shop, eat at those little town cafes or relax with some joyous spa
