After a 10 hour bus journey from Dharamsala, I finally made it to Manali - we got there about 6.30am and the views were amazing all the way, watching the sunrise on the coach going through the mountains.
A taxi driver recommended a place to stay called Manu Guesthouse, situated in Old Manali - I fully recommend it, it's only 150 rupees a night, with on suite bathroom and lovely people working there! That day I visited an old temple called The Dunghri Temple. I met a girl called Tatiana, and we agreed to go trekking the following day up a mountain to get some good photos. That evening we went to meet some people in the 3rd Eye Cafe.
On Wednesday went to Vashisht to the hot springs (not as romantic as I thought) basically a bath tub in a temple shared with everyone else, and they only change the water once a day! Spent a few days sight seeing, and booked my ticket for Simla - leaving Friday with Shirley.
