-- Get Chamba bound HRTC bus from Manali, which goes via Dalhousie.

-- Manali to Dalhousie would cost around Rs.4K by small car.

-- 4 days needed for dalhousie-khajjiar-mcleodganj

-- Shimla can be skipped in this trip.

-- The route can be delhi->manali->dalhousie.

HPTDC have hotels of budget category as well as deluxe hotels (in Shimla). Avoid Beas Hotel in Manali which is not in a good shape, the other hotels are okay.

thanks ashis.

but i am planning to take kalka mail to kalka and it reaches there at 4:30am and most of the trains from kalka to simla are in the morning only.

So would you suggest staying one night at kalka as the train could be late as well or proceed directly without staying there.

Dear Ashish Da,

I have a doubt.

I dont want to travel continuously.

shimla to kullu or manali takes a long time i guess.

So whether going through Shoja will be better option.

I am planning my honeymoon in mid October

Is it safe for me as a couple to travel through shoja as i have read it is very scarcely populated?

i want to return via pathankot

i will be in himachal for 8 days.
