Postby dredzz » Wed Jan 11, 2017 2:01 pm

Hi all,

Can anyone give me good suggestion for my trip with best road routes?

Am planning to start journey from February 6th morning 5am from Delhi. I need to return Delhi by Friday 11 pm. So can someone guide me accordingly? I need to cover tirthan alley as well. Or I have to skip shimla? Any worth for going shimla as my trip included manali. Please advice? Self drive vehicle options - grand i 10 and ford eco sport? Which one best?


Cheers

Welcome to DoW Community !!

It seems you have essentially 5 days of travel. I will recommend dropping the Tirthan Valley or dropping Shimla. Better will be if you keep trip focused on Shimla + Chindi + Karsog OR Tirthan Valley + Manali. Once the circuit should be done in just 5 days in hand.

This is what it looks like for 6 days, which in itself will be a bit hectic.

Day 1 | Reach Shimla from by overnight Volvo from previous night. Check-in and rest at hotel. In the second half explore local Shimla including Shimla Ridge, Mall Road, Lakkar Bazaar, Back to Hotel By Evening.
Day 2 | Shimla - Narkanda - Hatu Peak - Narkanda - Shimla or you can do Shimla - Kufri - Chail - Shimla (Little les hectic :))
Day 3 | Shimla - Manali
Day 4 | Manali Local sightseeing which includes Hadimba Temple, Manu Temple, Mall Road, Local Monastery, Vashisth Hot Water Springs (never found it interesting) etc.
Day 5 | Manali – Snow Point either at Solang Valley or Marhi/Gulaba on the way to Rohtang Pass or Rphtang Pass if safe to reach there. Enjoy in snow and come back to Manali and on the way do paragliding at Solang Valley, if required.
Day 6 | Manali – Delhi.
