I do not want to cover all of these.
These were just some of the places which people thought were worth visiting in Himachal Pradesh.
I have just provided a list of all such places and i would like to know which among them could be covered.
I am ready to drop places and accomodate only the ones which make sense to cover.
So i would like to know what would be the best itenary and the order in which it would make sense to cover?
If there are other places which i have not listed and you feel that its worth covering, then i would love to hear them too.
Which among the above could be covered in 10 days?
What would be the ideal itenary?
I would also love staying 2 days in scenic places before moving on to the next one.
Here is a brief description of what i would want to do:

My plan is something like this:
