Hi Dheeraj,
Your work is really commendable considering the fact that you are a software developer as well as an avid traveler, I would require a small help in regards to planning a family trip (2+1) with my daughter aged 5 yrs to Manali & Kullu from Delhi for 2-3 nights
1. Is Rohtang pass accessible with family in January if yes then how do we go about here?
2.Could you please suggest me the main spots to be visited on this tour within the short span
also is there any number on which I can contact you in order to seek a few important suggestions in order to plan a short trio to Manali & *Kullu *(only if possible), please?
Looking forward to hearing from you
Thanks in advance
Sid

Hello Sidharth,

Thank you.

1. Rohtang Pass will not be accessible in the month of January but you will find ample of snow along the snow points at Gulaba/Marhi/Solang Valley to play and enjoy.

2. As you have just have 2-3 days, I will suggest to keep it simple. Better reach Manali and stay there. Enjoy walks around and dedicate one day for a tour to Solang Valley to play in snow and while coming back visit Naggar Castle and have late lunch there at Naggar Castle. Then return in the evening. Next day rest there in Manali and enjoy walks and come back.

Manali Local sightseeing which includes Hadimba Temple, Manu Temple, Mall Road, Local Monastery, Vashisth Hot Water Springs (never found it interesting) etc, Snow Points are at either at Solang Valley or Marhi/Gulaba on the way to Rohtang Pass and do check out Naggar Castle (stay at Naggar and enjoy the place if possible).

I hope that helps. Please let me know incase you need more details or have some queries or doubts.

If interested in more details on Manali including sightseeing places, accommodation options, food joints, etc you can go through the Manali travel guide available at the link here

Regards
Dheeraj

Hi Dheeraj,
Thanks for the guidance, this is how I am planning it now:
Day 1-Reach Manali from Pathankot via bus/cab & stay
Day 2-Local sightseeing Hidimba Temple, Monastery, Hot Springs & Local Mall Road
Day 3-Visit Solang Valley & Naggar Castle, lastly enjoy the walks around the city in evening
Day 4-Visit Manikaran if possible & return Delhi by bus in evening
Also wanted to know the good options to stay for vegetarians that are easily accessible [HPTDC, Kunzum/Johnson’s/Oyo Room\\\’s or any other]
Please suggest

There are plenty of food options on Mall road Manali. Naggar Castle will also serve nice food. If you are talking about stays then both HPTDC, Kunzum/Johnson’s are pretty close to mall road.
