Day 1 : arrive shimla via toy train. Check into hotel n do local shimla sight seeing. Shimla is no fun n not beautiful. Hotel Combermere is good. Awesome food n great location

Day 2: leave for manali. Start early as the route is scenic only after Auth n it gets dark by 5:30 pm. We stayed at manu allaya. Worth every penny, also fantastic hotel. Johnsons's is also fab, good crowd and fantastic restaurant too but Manu Allaya has better views of the valley

Day 3: local manali sight seeing

Day 4: solang valley. U can spend a couple of hrs there.

Day5 : try kothi, rahala, gulaba. My guess is tht it will be inacessible. U can do Manikaran on this day otherwise

Skip Naggar, honestly nothing compared to dalhousie n dharamshala

Day 6 : Proceed to dharamshala. Again leave early.

Day 7 : local sight seeing. Try staying closer to the main square in Mcleodganj. We stayed at Him view..it was ok.

Day 8 : leave for dalhousie.

Enroute see kangra fort, jwalamukhi temple

Day 9: local sight seeing

nothing much to see. But Dalhousie is beautiful. We stayed at grand view... Awesome property.

Day 10: day tour to khajjiar and chamba

Day 11 : return Leave early as road condition is not the best.

If u dont want to travel much and want a relaxed vacation remove dharmshala and spend one extra day at Manali or dalhousie.
