Hello,

Though the travel bug hit me many times, this time I am able to take off. My wife, son and I are off on a tour to Himachal Pradesh. Though I have been to HP several times for trekking, this is the first time I am going purely as a tourist.

I have booked us with Kesari Tours and will be travelling Delhi-Shimla-Manali route with them. But the adventurous streak in me did not let me do just that. So we are leaving 5 days earlier and going straight to Amritsar, spending a day there visiting the Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh and the Wagah Border. The next 4 days, I have a private car/taxi booked (Thanks for the valuable information in IndiaMike, ref sumanthewhiz's post:http://www.indiamike.com/india/buses...amsala-t73963/)

Now my question is, since I have the taxi with me till I reach Chandigarh on day 4, what are the places I can visit/see? Could someone help me with my tour plan? I have never visited this part of Himachal and would love to have suggestions....

At present the plan is:

Day One: Amritsar to Dalhousie - Stay overnight
Day Two: Dalhousie Khajjiar
Day Three: Dalhousie to Dharamshala - Overnight stay
Day Four: Dharamshala to Chandigarh by evening

At Chandigarh, we catch up with Kesari Tours for the conducted tour.

Thanks in advance

hi mangesh,
why dont u try reverse? travel with conducted tour till manali.
from manali to dharamshala( it is less tiring then dharamshala chandigarh i think). from dharamshala to delhousie-khajjiar and amritsar. it will be more comfortable.

When going gets tough, tough get going

Have to travel this route

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestion. But I have to be back by May 10. So I can only go this way. BTW, I did get a lot of info on what to see in Amritsar, but not much about Dalhousie except that a visit to Khajiar is a must.....
