I have heard so much about himachal pradesh...I'm planning my First Ever trip (actually first ever trip outside my state jammu ) with my other 2 friends to Himachal Pradesh in this fist week of September....

After doing some research i found out that the tourist spots in HP are Kullu, Manali, Khajjar, Mclodganj, Dharamshala, Dhalousie, and many others....

I can stay for a week (or a maximum of 10 days)...So from where i should i begin to cover up the most places in optimum way and which are the best places to visit in HP?

We are going on Santro which gives an average of 15 kmpl...So How much money expenses should i expect for petrol? and what is the extent of overall expenses i can expect (excluding petrol expenses)?

Himachal is totally hilly, so average will drop.

You should expect really lower fuel averages since you will be mostly driving in first or second gears If you start from Amritsar, then cover Dalhousie, Khajjiar, Kangra Valley, Mcleodganj, Dharamshala, Palampur, Kullu, Manali and then return back, it would be an itinerary that you could cover in 10 days. It would be tight but manageable. I would suggest that you read through the posts on this forum for some good recommendations on accomodation. There are plenty of homestays and HPTDC options that are very economical.

Thats not entire correct , over the course of a trip one might find the mileage to eventually be similar to what you might get in the plains as well , depends on how you drive , yes more fuel consumed while going uphill but there is a ;make up' factor when coming down as well.
