Mandi - Parashar Lake - Kullu - Bhekli Temple - Naggar - Manali

By 16:30 we reached Kullu and took the less used route to Manali via Naggar to beat the traffic of the usual Mandi Manali route. It was indeed peaceful and till now we never got a feeling that we were in HP during the peak touristy season. There were two possible reasons,

1. The Peak summer was quite worse in HP. It was not cold at all
2. We took the less traveled routes all the time!!

We had our moments in Kullu Manali route.


We spent quite a bit of quality time by the Beas River

An avoidable place in my honest opinion. Neither the drive nor the place is anything worthwhile. The next hope was pinned on an art museum just 200m away from the palace.

It was already 18:00 and the museum would close by 18:00. Nevertheless took the risk of going up there since it was just a few minutes walk.

Mandi - Parashar Lake - Kullu - Bhekli Temple - Naggar - Manali

By the time we reached the Art Museum it was already closed. I could see a lovely young lady presumably on her honeymoon, pleading to the ticket counter fellows how she has come all the way from Punjab to see the gallery and it is not fair they just close down. She was quit convincing in her theory that the ticket counter guys called the big boss. The boss on hearing her out was completely melted and decided to make her day and allowed her to enter, and on seeing me with three girls pleadingly looking at him, he decided to let us in as well

He himself came with us to open up one of the rooms to show us the paintings and allowed us to roam around in the compound for another 30 minutes.

The three places of interest here

It was 19:15 by the time I paid for the parking and took the car out.

After almost an hour of drive, we reached Club Mahindra Manali by 20:30ish. We were assigned our room immediately. Ordered some light dinner to the room and settled to ourselves. The room was a duplex with one bedroom on the top with a living room and another on the ground with a kitchen. PPGs immediately took over the first floor and switched on their TV and munched on their dinner. While it was time for me to make some notes and prepare the next days drive.
