Need help with itinerary

Dear forum members

We will be visiting Himachal for our honeymoon from May 15-23. Please provide your valuable suggestions on the following:

1. Out of the available 9 days, 6 days will be spent in Shimla and Manali visiting the usual places. For the remaining 3 days, is Dalhousie/Dharamshala a better destination or would it be Kinnaur? I feel Manali to Dharamsala would be a hectic journey. On the other hand Kinnaur seems a bit of an offbeat destination and I'm concerned somewhat about safety as it would be just the two of us travelling. Pls advise.

2. For local sightseeing in Shimla and Manali, how is the quality of HPTDC bus tours? As per their website these buses depart at 10-11 AM which seems rather late, esp when visiting Solang/Rohtang, and it seems a waste of some beautiful mornings. Would a taxi be a better option (budget is also bit of a concern).

Thanks in advance!!

1.) Kinnaur is a offbeat destination. Safety is not a concern in major parts of Himachal.

But Dalhousie is recommended for Honeymoon. You can take a break at Palampur if journey seems hectic.

2.) Though Private cab is costlier but more flexible.

Dear Friend

As Virsa correctly said Dalhousie/Khajjiar is a Good option and you can take a Halt at Palampur for 1 night.Palampur is city with lot of Tea Gardens.

Also i suggest to Book a CAB for entire tour.The daily cost of CAB Indica/Alto will be around Rs.1500-1700 including all Tolls ,Parking and drivers expenses.

Himachal is very safe place.Avoid night traveling in Cabs to cover major distances.
