Everybody is tired of sitting at home and not stepping out. While international travel is on hold for many of us, exploring what our very own country has to offer would be the best idea with a few precautions. Explore the hills, book a place and chill with your family, friends or simply go solo. With Kullu Manali being a great destination, here is a list of some homestays here which cost not more Rs 2000. These have the best reviews in the range so you check them out.

New Mannat Home
Located 25 kilometers away from Hidimba Devi Temple with the Tibetan Monastery just 22 kilometers from it, the property makes for a lovely homestay. The rooms have TVs and the breakfast served is vegetarian. You can also take a stroll in the garden they have and not worry about wifi either. The tariff is Rs 965.
The prices written here are the latest I checked but it is best to confirm with place. Enjoy your stay and don't think about work if you are with the family. If you are travelling solo then this makes for a good workation since we are all on work from home. Finish your work and enjoy the scenery later, away from the people you have been seeing constantly for the past 6 months due to the lockdown.
