Hi,

Thank you for the information.

Please let me some of the decent (Budget) hotels in Shimla and manali and do I need to per-book them in advance.

Here is my plan and advice if any correction or modification is needed.

Day 1. Bangalore to Delhi – Overnight Journey to Kalka by train

Day 2 . Take a Toy train from Kalka to Shimla and Complete city tour and mall road

Day 3. Move to Manali by Bus

Day 4. Manali Loal (Hadimba Temple, Manu Temple, Vasisth Kund etc.)

Day 5. Day trip to Kullu and Manikaran

Day 6. Snowpoint and Solang valley and overnight journey to Delhi.

Is my allocated budget is sufficient if I take taxi for local travel in Manail.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Mahesh,

Browse Tripadvisor hotel link of Manali and Shimla forums you will see reviews of travelers select one which is suitable one

I visited Manali in 2004 using Panickar travel from New Delhi I do not remember the hotel I stayed

Manali local sightseeing taxi fare would be rs.1800-2000 So I think you could finish the tour within the budget

But food is a little bit costly

I remember 2 pieces of idly costed rs.40 at that time ( 2004 )and in Chennai that was rs.12-15
