Shimla Manali Trip

Hi,

I am planning for Shimla -Manali trip this April with my wife.

Please let me know how long it takes from Shimla to Manali by Bus/Car, approx cost and the road condition.

And I am planning to make the Shimla local tour by HPTDC Bus.They have 2 options:

- Shimla-Kufri-Chini Bungalow-Chail

- Shimla-Kufri-Fagu-Mashobra-Naldehra

Which one will be better option in terms of scenic beauty?

Please also let me know what are the places we can visit in Manali this time and whether HPTDC Manali tour will be good enough or should we hire a car in Manali.

Thanks in advance for your co-operation!

hiiiii

manali to shimla is 240km aprox. by bus 10 hrs. and by taxi 6 to 7 hrs.

taxi @ 4000, by bus 500 tourist bus.

some travell agents oprate the taxi service on this route on sharing base for the booking u may contact travell agents in shimla.

its much better if u choose this tour - Shimla-Kufri-Fagu-Mashobra-Naldehra .

u have also two option for manali sights seeing , by taxi . ind. car or shareing car.

because hptdc buses are not runs on local places it runs only for manali to manikarn which is 86 km for 1 side.

u can cover these points iin manali

Half Day Manali local Sight Seeing(Hadimba Temple,Siyali Mahadev,Vashisht Hot Spring,Tibetan Monestry).

Full Day Manali To Snow Point(Rohtang Pass If Open).

Full Day Manali To Manikarn.

my trip planned in July 1st week.

My group of 6 friends are planning a tour for 4 Nights-5 Days. We would be starting from Delhi and be covering Amritsar, Dharamsala or Dalhousie and Manali in those 5 days of time. Now I have thought of alloting a day for Amritsar (Golden Temple, Jalianwalah Bagh and Wagah Border). Keeping aside Amritsar, I am left with 4 days and 2 locations to cover(Manali + Either Dharamsala or Dalhousie). My queries are:

1. Except for Amritsar, we would be like adventure at other locations in 4 days. So what according to would be better-Dharamsala or Dalhousie?

2. How should we plan the itinerary 4m Delhi:

Amritsar-Dharamsala/Dalhousie-Manali or

Manali-Dharamsala.Dalhousie-Amritsar?

3. What are the adventure activites we can look for at these locations within those 4 days?

Also what accodomation options would you suggest for at these locations?

We are thinking of opting over-night journeys to save us with ample time to enjoy and make the trip memorable.
