I along with my 3 friends are planning a trip to Manali in Jan 2014 (3-4 days trip). After referring to a lot of threads on various sites i came to following conclusion, need your valuable advice's and suggestion regarding the same.
a) We will start from Delhi by train for Chandigarh and from Chandigarh we have planned to book a taxi upto Manali, will that be ok?
b)We will start from Delhi at 2:35 PM via Janshatabdi so in that case we will be reaching Chandigarh around 7:30 PM, so what do u suggest should we stay in Chandigarh that night and start early next morning or we should start from Chandigarh and halt some were in between, my main concern is that i dont want to miss the scenic beauty that falls on way to Manali. So if anyone can tell me how further from Chandigarh i should go and halt my night Journey ?
c) I would appreciate if you could refer me some good hotel names in Manali and also some good drivers whose company can be fun as per your previous experiences. Also the aprrox cost for the Taxi Trip (Chandigarh -Manali- Chandigarh) and hotels.
Thanks in advance for your valuable advices and suggestions.

Hi, We are planning a trip to HP in the first week of May. We are arriving in Pathankot by train, and plan to retain a taxi for a week and return from the same. Our tentative itinerary is 2 nights in Mcleodganj; to Khajjiar through Chamba Jot and a night in Khajjiar; a day exloring the architecture at Chamba town, the temples, stay the night in Chamba; move to Dalhousie through the route around the Chamera Dam, and a night and the following day in Dalhousie.; back to Pathankot. We were told by a tourism officer that he recommends against the night in Chamba since it gets quite warm there. Would you corroborate, or do you think its worth the warmth [[we|are architects ]]? Please send suggestions towards this itinerary. Also recommendations towards reliable contacts for the taxi would be appreciated. Regards.
Hey Everyone, after some more advise please regarding the 2nd leg of our journey…
We’ll be finishing in Jaisalmer in Rajasthan and looking to head to Himachal Pradesh. The most northern stop in Himachal Pradesh for us will be Manali.
Basically we’d like to know the best route to get us from Jaisalmer to Himachal Pradesh. We’re easy on which way to travel once we’re in Himachal Pradesh.
Places we’d like to stop in HP are Shimla, Parvati Valley, Kullu Valley, McLeod Ganj. Again advice on best routes, tips/places to see would be useful.
After this we’ll be making our way east through Uttarakhand then into Uttar Pradesh. Any information for us to look up in our research would be great!
Many thanks again, Steph & Ant
