Hi
Climate will be very cold during Dec. Snowfall is common.
HPTDC buses are very comfortable.

Hello chinchu50,

Welcome to IM club.
Manali in late December will be very cold. Very fare chances of getting snowfall. At night, the temperature drop down below zero where as during day time it will be around 10 - 14 degree C. Please carry heavy woolen with you. Even when you get down in Delhi you need light woolen during day time and a good jacket or sweater at night. In manali, there are plenty of shops from there you can purchase woolen cloths too if at all you feel cold in Manali.
The super deluxe bus are good. they have push back seats which actually does push back a bit.
you will reach Manali by 10 - 11 in the morning by bus.

Best of luck for the trip.

Cheers,
-Nitin
On the way to visit the whole Himalaya....

Get ready to experience the chilling winds of Himalayas at Manli during Dec. Carry heavy woolen garments as the temp. drops down in between 10 degree celsius to 0 degree celsius

Beas kund and dhundi?? are you sure in winter? I don't think it will be possible unless you have booked with some mountaineering agency.

hi Chinchu,
I was reading this thread now and wonder if you could share your experience of Manali or if you have already posted them? I am going there this year around the same dates. And I am from Chennnai too so more curious to know from you. In case you see this, could you please post your valuable reply/suggestions.

Thanks,
Prem
