Hotels : Shimla - Kapil Hotel, Brightlad, Balji's, Shingar. Manali - H.Tourist, Adarsh, Drifters Inn, Kunzum, Rohtang Manalsu (HPTDC).

I suggest toy train to reach Shimla. Because that is the best option. The scenic beauty you get during this journey is much better what you get in Shimla.

There is HPTDC Volvo (AC) bus between Delhi and Shimla, fare Rs.880. You may avail conducted tour by HPTDC for sightseeing in Manali and Shimla.

Nearest airport of Manali is Chandigarh. If you have direct flight to Chandigarh its okay, otherwise get to Delhi and take a cab or volvo bus from there to Manali, takes 12-14 hrs.

The itinerary is okay. But visiting Kullu, Manikaran on the dep day seems dicey. May do local s/s on that day. Because, local s/s will not be possible on day4, after reaching Manali. Shimla to Manali takes aprox 8 hrs.
