Known as the Abode of Manu, Manali is named after Manu, who penned the Hindu Dharmas or laws of the religion. Legend has it that Manu stepped off his arc to recreate life on Earth at the spot. June to October is the best time to visit the hill station, as Indians are not used to white winters. This picture was taken after a surprise rain shower after which the mountains are covered with snow. A beautiful sight that you can relish through your eyes!
