Day 4&5: Depart to Shimla & local sightseeing

Day 6: Depart to Manali

Day 7&8: Kullu, Manikaran, Rohtang Pass & Solang

You can use the HOHO bus service to do sightseeing in Delhi.

Use the Shatabdi express to visit Agra on a same day trip

Hire a cab for the Shimla & Manali trip.

Dear Jay,

I do not suggest you to travel by trains & local buses if you are total no of eight , as you have to buy 08 tickets and also transportation for local arrangement. Considering your children's age and no. of total member I would suggest you to Hire 07+01 ( Sofa seat ) Toyota Innova or similar car.

Suggested Plan :

Day 01 Delhi arrival- if time permits visit Old Delhi.

Day 02 Delhi – Agra ( Half day visit Delhi – Evening leave for Agra)

Day 03 Agra- Delhi (Visit Agra & evening proceed to Delhi, Night stay Delhi)

Day 04 Delhi – Shimla( approx 08-09 Hours )

Day 05 Shimla

Day 06 Shimla- Manali ( 07 to 08 Hours drive)

Day 07 Manali

Day 08 Manali- Chandigarh ( approx 08-09 Hours drive)

Day 09 Chandigarh-Delhi ( Approx 05 Hours)

• If you wish to travel by road then 02 more days recommended – 01 extra day for Delhi & Manali each places.

• If you wish cover the places in 09 days by public transport better to skip Shimla, as public transport needs more time than private transport.

• Same day trip to Agra is not suggestible with kids, to do this day trip you have to start very early & will end at late, so just exhausting & without seeing much.

• If looking for cheapest then Delhi – Manali- Delhi travel by overnight buses to save accommodation money, Plan – Delhi – Agra – Delhi & Delhi – Manali – Delhi. We can recommend someone who organize these type of trips or search in TA for recommended Travel agents / cheap hotels/ transport etc.

Regards, Hari Mangal
