Hi All,

We are planning to visit shimla and manali this oct, we are a group of 6 guys. we have our train tickets booked. Heres a brief description.
We will arrive at kalka on oct 9th and board the toy train early in the morning and reach shimla at 11:00 pm in the afternoon.

Up till here its planned, from here we do not have any accomodation booked and are planning to look for it when we get there. Is it very difficult to get acccomodation at that time??

Also wanna cover kullu and manali so can anybody suggest me about how to go about from shimla to manali and info abt transport and accomodation. I am looking for some budget hotels ranging from 6-700 RS p/n with an extra bed.Is it possible to get rooms in this range??

And also which is more enjoyable,
--A bus from shimla to manali or
---hire a qualis from shimla to manali (pls tell me the cost)

Also can anyone give me info abt some adventure sports in october in manali???
Thanks
HimalayaKid

Arrow October 9th onwards...

...Shimla and Manali should not be a real problem coz Deepawali hols begin around 16th..

Expect heavy discounts in hotel room rates.

Shimla to Manali cab will be somewhere between 3500 to 4500. Bus is around 250 rs. Many buses during the day...

Shimla Try the hotel Dalziel

Good location and the prices are reasonable. double room in may was Rs. 500/-

Shimla manali you can take the hptdc buses - the deluxe is better but no great shakes.

The road from shimla to manali is very curvy and even the most experienced can suffer from nausea. The buses leave by 8 in the morning so that they can reach the destination by evening.

Manali you can stay at the hptdc hotel BEAS you can book this online. There are many hotels guesthouses in manali so getting cheap acco should not be a problem.

have a good trip

The YMCA (not ywca) behind the ritz cinema is good they charge around 300rs,
but there are always lots of touts waiting to escort you up the very long very steep hill to a place of their choice. If you want to avoid this leave the train station via the ticket office exit, once you are up on the main road you will see the taxi booking office on the other side, take a cab from here to the lift which brings you out three quarters of the way up the mall.
My personal preference is local bus to Manali. I like to stay at the Sunshine G/H 350rs you can see some pics of it here. KK http://picasaweb.google.com/kullukid...ySKq-KqmE96O6Y
