Mall road runs past the bus stand . Easy to find places to stay a stone throw away from there. HRTC state buses and HPTDC tourist buses both stop overnight in Keylong , which is the better option in comfort and safety. Shared taxis and minibuses stop at The Vomit Hilton ( Sarchu ) .

Practical pointers at http://korta.nu/sleepless

Road has opened very late this year , after a lot of late and heavy snowfalls . HRTC buses still not running , HPTDC normally start in July. updates on my blog.

Best solution for altitude sickness is acclimatization. What medicines should I carry

Don't waste time on acclimatization in Manali more than a single night , very slow at ( actually just below ) 2000 meters. Sissu , Keylong and Jispa , all around 3100 is a lot better. Diamox is the only medication that works preventively , talk it over with a doc. good background info at http://korta.nu/cdcalt
