Hey everyone,

A friend and me are planning to travel to Himachal in the first week of December. We're travelling from Singapore. I'll already be in Gujarat for a week to visit family. So we're planning to meet in Delhi before we head up to Himachal.

I would really appreciate help from anyone on how to plan this trip or even not plan some things. Both of us are chilled and don't really need to book hotels etc in advance. We're thinking a total of 10 days. The plan right now is to at least book travel and accomodation for one night in Shimal before we explore the rest of the region. Is that okay?

Could anyone enlighten us on exactly what would be good travel route? Or maybe even some activities? Would camping be an issue especially in the winter?

Also, coming from a tropical island, we're both unsure of exactly how cold it might get and what kind of clothes to bring.

I know I've asked a load of questions but anyone out there who could help us out? We would really appreciate it!!

Thanks! And much love!

Take a train to Delhi and then a HPTDC or HRTC bus to Shimla. Spend the days in and around Shimla and Manali.

Check wonderground or accuweather for the climate last year to understand how cold it would be. Carry some woolen clothes with you.

You may like to visit Dharamsala and McLeodGanj. There is nice and easy trek to Triund hill - it gives experience of hiking, it's easy - 3 hours of walking up and 1?5 down, it gives spectacular views in both sides - Kangra valley and beautiful mountain range on other side.

Check info about it. You may like it
