    Our family wants to go to Kull Manali in either January or February. It would be our first time when we would be going to Himachal Pradesh and would like to know what kind of Kullu Manali package is available from Delhi.

    We would like to go for a 14 day holiday and would like it if the package includes some activities.

    Hello, @Singhania, welcome to the forum!


    Overview

    Both the towns of Kullu and Manali belong to the district of Kullu, with the former being its headquarters. Kullu is considered as the commercial centre of the district, with lots of interesting temples and markets that one can explore. Excursions into Manikaran, Kasol and other towns are usually done from Kullu as well. On the other hand, Manali is the touristy part of the district, often dubbed as a honeymooner's paradise.

For many tourists though, a visit to both towns can complete their tour of the district hence, the need for tour packages covering both Kullu and Manali.
