The deserted moonscape makes an indelible impression on visitors. Culturally, you're in Tibet, the serene Buddhist monasteries testify to this. You can opt for a breathtaking hike and visit Dharamsala, the present seat of the Dalai Lama. Aspects of Sikhism you will find in the Golden Temple of Amritsar, Hinduism in Delhi and you will experience the charm of Manali where you can take leisurely walks in the woods.
