5 Stunning Waterfalls That Are Within 20Km From Manali

Travelling offers great experiences. And one such is found over every fall and around every bend. Waterfalls cleanse your mind and soothe your soul. The beauty and power of pounding water is sheer magic. And if you are a true traveller, you will surely carve your path to Manali. Waterfalls in Manali are perfect for a blissful escapade into nature. So here is a list of stunning waterfalls that are just 20kms from Manali.

1. Knoi Waterfall

One of the most stunning waterfalls in Manali, Knoi is located 10 km away from Manali mall road. The Knoi is one of the smaller waterfalls in Manali. It falls down from a height of 20m and has a cave-like base with big boulders of rocks. It is best if you visit the waterfall during the monsoon. That allows you the perfect monsoon dip.
The best route to reach Knoi is to travel via Kullu – Naggar – Manali Road. The waterfall is open to tourists 24-hour, so timing isn’t a problem here. But do carry your hiking shoes, sticks, and additional clothing if you are in for a dip!
