24/10/18 : Reach Ambala Canton Station .Take Taxi to reach Shimla.Stay at Simla( Hotel suggestions please) - I personally prefer to stay near the lift to mall since I feel there is no point to stay in the hotels near the mall as the view is nothing great sort of. One has to pay a hefty sum for to and fro coolie charge if stays at the hotel near mall. Near the lift you could opt for hotel crystal palace, a mid range hotel say within 2000 INR/day.

25/10/18 : Shimla to Sarhan .Stay Hptdc/ Any other hotel(Suggestions needed) - Apart from HPTDC(Shirkhand), I stayed at Deblok, Trehans and PWD rest house which are just besides, 100 mtrs away and 1 Km away from Bhimkali temple respectively. I'll go for PWD rest if given a chance.

26/10/18 : Sarhan to Rackchem.

27/10/18 : Stay at Rackchem.Full day tour for Chitkul.

28/10/18 : Morning drive to Kalpa located in back drop of Kinnour Kailash mountain range. On arrival check in at hotel. Evening free to explore Kalpa village. Overnight stay at hotel.

29/10/18 : Kalpa local sightseeing
Releax at Kalpa. Visit the apple gardens and surrounding villages with Guye village ( The old Mummy ). Gue village will be a whole day affair and it will be very cold out there since it is located between Nako and Tabo at much higher altitude.

30/10/18 : Kalpa to Narkanda

31/10/18 : Narkanda to Chandigarh.Fly to Kolkata.

Please help with transport option -You may take a sedan(Toyota Etios) from Ashoke Thakur 9816805839/8219903564

Hey...we all are friends so no "sir" business. As regard to the staying options :-

1. Rackcham - Hotel Rupin River View is the best to me. If you opt to stay in tent then Kinnaur Kailash or Yeti Camp. Pre book the hotel since it often runs out full in October. For camps, go there, bargain and then decide. Food are bit costly at Rupin but too good, try their himalayan pulao. Chicken curry are the best in the tents.

2. Chitkul - Accommodations are in number but the best is Samaa Resort.

3. Kalpa - Again plenty staying options but I would suggest not to book HPTDC because others like Kinnaur Villa, Golden Apple etc. have better views and a bit cheaper. You may stay at Roling Rang just besides Hotel Kinnaur Kailash(HPTDC) which is also good. Rupin at Rackcham and Roling here have same owner, Naresh Jistu, very nice and helpful person. But 3rd week will be touch and go w.r.t apple blooming on orchards since they starts plucking from 2nd week. Advance booking preferable.

4. PWD Sarahan - Prebooking doesn't make much of a sense since it could get cancelled at any point of time if govt. officials arrives. Hence, try your luck once you arrive there.

3rd week will be cold so take proper winter gears since you are going there with an infant.
