Nested in a charming landscape of mountain glaciers, peaks, gorges, ridge, and entwining trails, the hill station is one of the noted tourist destinations of Himachal Pradesh. The city got its name after a Hindu sage Manu, the Indian Noah, who protected all the species on earth after a destructive natural calamity. A fish that had been taken care of by Manu warned him about this awaiting danger. In view of that, Manu carried a pair of all the species in his ark and took refuge at this place which was called as Manali after him.
