Some questions about treks in Himachal

He happens to be from the area ( uttarakhand) and usually pretty knowledgeable and helpful in such matters.
Let's hope he sees this or we may have to pull his attention here.
Sar Pass Trek , Rohtang, Munnar, Badrinath Kedarnath, Vaishnodevi, Goa

Kri69, your plan is fine, except that it is in peak monsoon time. So considering that, and more importantly considering you will be using public transport, going via Tiuni to Shimla on either route should be avoided, and Dehradun to Shimla bus will be your best option which is what you have rightly planned.

If I were to plan this, I would stick to Himachal. You are travelling a lot and dependent on public transport throughout, that too in a terrain which is highly landslide prone. One strong spell of rain and you may be stuck for a few days which will impair your further plan.

jituyadav, thank you for answering. Frankly speaking i thought that monsoon will end before September. What after-monsoon time would you recommend so the plan can be left unchanged? Should I shift start of the trip to middle of September? Fortunately, I didn't bought tickets yet =)

It's a pity, but i don't know when there will be possibility to visit India next time. Tapovan is my dream since i visited Gomukh in 2012 and Himachal is just Heaven on Earth - this bring short-term visit apart but I eager to try to be everywhere. However I admit that everything is changeable. Perhaps I will take some more vacation days to have more time.

One overnight Volvo bus (utconline.com) from Dehradun at 4 pm towards Manali (6-30 am). Overnight at Shimla may not be needed.

Perhaps there is another trek with similar case.
Yes Pin Parbati trek has diverse landscape views. Bhabha pass with lower difficulty level offers similar views and terrain. If you are looking for less trampled paths then you should go for Kinner Kailash Parikrama or Lamkhaga pass. Larsa we is another trek which offers dramatic landscapes.
