From the Spiti valley, we headed back down to Manali then travelling down the Kullu valley on the way to Shimla we stopped at a small village called Naggar. Still up in the mountains near Manali, it was peaceful and v green - esp after the Spiti and pin valleys! less exciting but relaxing, we had our very own room in an old wooden castle(!), did calming mountain forest walks, visited a nearby village with ancient wooden temples, staring locals and mad kids where we also stumbled across a very incongruous volleyball match (see above!) And of course we took time out to eat healthy big dinners after all that walking and mountain air.
