Hi Saurav,

It will be better if you avoid the monsoon season to visit Dharamshala. As Dharamshala gets the second highest rain in India. So it will be better for you to visit there in or after September.

The places which can be visited there are :- Dalai Lama Temple, Church, Bhagsunag Temple, Chamunda Temple, Kangra Temple, Jawala ji Temple and Chintpurni Temple.

Thanks and regards,

Manali Bookings.

Hi Saurav,

Best time to visit Mcleodganj/ Dharamshala is from September to December and Mid March to Mid July.

Must visit places are mentioned above. Would just like to add the Monastries, Norbulinga, Karmappa, Palampur, Baijnath temple etc.

Bir Billing can be visited for paragliding from Dharamshala by taxi. You can also take a bus to Palampur and hire a taxi from there.

I am from kolkata. We will be 6 family members travelling to shimla and manali along with 7 months old baby.

First of all i would like to know whether first week of october is suitable to visit over there with 7 months old baby or not? How could be the weather over there at that time?

We would have 4 days excluding travelling. Please suggest a itinerary and budget hotel(1500-2000).

What would be the way so,that we have less travelling day and can enjoy train from kalka to shimla?

we would opt for both side fight.

Please reply.

Hi Subhajitkol,

First week of October is good for Himachal as the weather is very pleasant.

Day 1: Arrive Chandigarh and drive to Shimla (Not sure if flights to Shimla will be operational at that time). Local sightseeing; Church, Jakhoo temple, Mall, Ridge etc.

Day 2: Kufri sightseeing and drive to Manali.

Day 3: Gulaba, Marhi, Solang

Day 4: Manali local sightseeing such as Hadimba temple, Club house, Van vihar + Mall road.

Day 5: Manali - Chandigarh and fly back.

Flights to Shimla and Manali are not operational yet. Not sure if that will be operational in October. You can plan Chandigarh as you base for the flights.

regards

Sunny

We are planning to go to Dharamshala/Dalhousie in the second week of July 2015. I would request help from the experts to comment if that is correct time or will there be too much of rain during that period.

Appreciate any information/updates.

Best Regards.
