Dear friends,


I am going to spend 14 days in Himachal and I am trinyg to sort out the most interesting and driest itinerary. I did realize that due to time constraints it is impossible to travel in Chanba valley, Kullu valley and Sangla valley, therefore I would like your help to make a choice.

I will also choose according to the raining forecast bewten August 14-28. Dharsalama is rainny so I would like to skip that area.

thanks for you help

Best

Iacopo

Lahaul and Spiti valley will be more dry.

Otherwise, the places mentioned by you will get rains. This is monsoon.

Iacopovic, of the three valleys you mentioned, Sangla gets the least amount of rainfall. You have got 2 weeks at your disposal, so you can see upper Kinnaur and Spiti too, as Bhaswaran suggested.These two palces experience sub-arid to arid climate.

Good people in Chamba

Hi,
Chamba is sheltered a little from the rain by the Dhaludar range, but still gets a monsoon. the following link is to an excellent village guest house with traditional hospitatlity and good guides for getting to know the chamba region. They can also help with transport into the Pangi Valley which is outside the monsoon area. http://www.himalayanlap.com/

Chamba to Manali connection

Hi thanks a lot,

I am now tempted to go to Chamba and leave Sangla apart.

I was wondering whether there is any connection between Chamba and Manali not passing by Mandi?

Thank you very much for you help

ciao

Its a difficult connection, if your vehicle can make it across the Sach Pass ahead of Trilokinath in Lahaul. No buses. Only privately hired jeeps. ONe IMer went on motorbike till the foot of Sach Pass on the Chamba side but he did not attempt to cross it to Lahaul....

See this thread....

And this one

The regular connection is via Mandi. No other option.... unless you want to go via a very round round trip thru Kinnaur.

First timer, Chamba in November? Please help with my plan...

Hi there,

Ill be arriving in Delhi, November the 1st then plan to make my way to Dalhousie, Khajjar, Chamba, Bharmour, Mcloed Ganj and that is where I run dry.. Do you think its a good plan so far? Anywhere I missed? Or should see? Im not big on over commercialised places. Also how about the weather there in November? Is Sangla worth the trip?
Thank you!

Lukas, if you are from Vietnam originally then it is going to be quite cold for you in November anywhere in the middle/upper hills of Himachal Pradesh. As regards your query regarding Chamba, maybe my blog for the destination may be useful - http://ghummakar-biswas.blogspot.in/...orduction.html

As regards Sangla, it would be more colder, but you will have to decide after checking out the details, you may go through my blog here -

Sangla is quite far from the dhaludhar range you mentioned, bir-billing might be a good option if you have couple of days in hand, another offbeat option is barot, search forums and decide what suits you

Thank you!
the valley from Chamba towards Kashmir is nice - and if you're into trekking you can go through to Zanskar

Trek to Passes of Zanskar in November is not recommended for casual trekkers.
