I am going to ladakh in June and considering my departure will be from rishikesh by bus i would like to know the following:
1- is it possible to do so visiting tsopema, manali and lahaul and spiti valley on my way there. Is it convenient?
I know that you can reach leh from rishikesh directly but was told that the way through manali is spectacular.
2-Which of the 2 ways (direct from rishikesh or going through manali) is better?
Thanks for any help.

You cannot reach Leh directly from Rishikesh, there is no such bus. There is a deluxe bus (Volvo) from Haridwar to Manali via Ner Chauk and Mandi. You can take this upto Ner Chauk (you will have to pay the fare upto Mandi) to get to Rivalsar/Tso Pema.
From Rivalsar, you can get transport to Mandi, and from there there are plenty of buses to Manali. From Manali, you will get transport to Leh. You can stop at Keylang if you like to see a bit of Lahaul.

This is about the simplest way to get from Rishikesh to Leh by road. If you still want to include Spiti, you will be doing a very big loop, practically through half of Himachal.
