Urgent help needed:

Me(26+ female) and my mother travelling to India for the first time in the first week of September. We initially wanted to visit kolkata-delhi-agra-manali-shimla and for that we were planning following itinerary:
  • Visit Agra from Delhi
  • Come back to delhi and fly from delhi to kullu
  • visit kullu - manali
  • reach shimla
  • shimla to delhi by bus or skip shimla and take bus from manali
We wanted to take toy train but have only 4 days for shimla and manali and to take toy train most of the time goes on journey. Looking at my mother's age I want to avoid and do less journey.
I tried booking HRTC bus but in website saying from Shimla/Manali to delhi route bus closed. I am assuming current landslide could be reason. I have seen news but do not know exact situation now.
My Question:
Can anyone please confirm the current weather, landslide and road block situation ? If the roads are blocked then I am thinking of going to alternate itinerary:
  • Visit delhi - agra
  • Visit Joypur, Ajmer,Pushkar.
  • Take flight from Joypur to kolkata
After reaching from kolkata to delhi, and then going back to kolkata if I take the alternate itinerary then I would have total 4 nights to visit delhi - pushkar and next day come back to joypur and take direct flight. Is this time and itinerary feasible in that time frame?

Flights to Kullu are unreliable. The main road from Delhi to Manali is usually open through out the year except for a few cases of landslides which is cleared on priority. Read Himachal Pradesh - Weather & tourism related news for the current situation in Himachal.

Do you mean Jodhpur?

No I meant Jaipur. I am not sure whether Jodhpur would be possible within a short 5 nights time frame.

That will be over by time you go - It's blocked due to cultman and his followers.
