Hi Anand,

I would suggest you the following itinerary;

05th May: Drive Chandigarh to Naldehra. Accommodation suggestion - Chalet Naldehra.

06th May: Local visits around Shimla.

07th May: Naldehra to Tattapani (Drive 40kms/1½hrs) Accommodation suggestion – Hotel Tattapani.

08th May: Tattapani to Thanedhar (Drive 85kms/3hrs) – Accommodation suggestion – Thanedhar Retreat.

09th May: Thanedhar to Sangla (Drive 148kms/6hrs) via Sarahan. Accommodation suggestion – Kinner Camps.

10th May: In Sangla. AM: Excursion trip to Chitkul, PM: Short hike to Badseri village to visit the temple.

11th May: Sangla to Kalpa. (Drive 45kms/2hrs) – Accommodation suggestion – Shangri La Hotel.

12th May: Kalpa – Shoja. (Drive 190kms/7hrs) - Accommodation suggestion – Banjara Retreat.

13th May: Shoja – Gushiani. (Drive 25kms/1hr) - Accommodation suggestion – Raju’s Cottage.

14th May: In Gushaini

15th May: Gushaini – Chandigarh (Drive 275kms/7hrs)

Ideal cost of transportation by Innova or scorpio for this drive Chandigarh to Chandigarh would be approx. 35 - 40k and you may contact any reliable taxi operator in Chandigarh/Kalka/Shimla for the same. Please check the condition of the vehicle especially the condition of tyres, it is very important to have good tyres in these hilly roads to have better grip in slippery conditions and reliability during sudden breaking conditions.

Hope it helps.
