---------------------
You plan to start from Manali 21st morning and leave Spiti 23rd morning... you will spend most of the time on the road and not see anything.

Bus from Manali to Kaza will take an entire day. Bus from Kaza to Recong Peo another day and from Recong Peo to Shima a third day. You need three days to just travel from Manali to Shimla on this route.

If you catch the late night bus from Manali on 24th, it will get you to Delhi on 25th morning. You have 4 days from 21st.

option 1: Manali - Chandratal - Manali ... this can consume 3 days ... spend an extra day in Manali
option 2: Manali - Kaza, Key, Kibber - Manali .... 4 days
option 3: Manali - Keylong - Manali .... 2 days travel, 2 days trekking to monasteries around Keylong

I would suggest that you keep Manali sightseeing for the end (after you have visited Lahoul/Spiti). That way, you don't have to worry about missing the bus back to Delhi in case there are problems with the road. (On the flip side, Manali will be an anticlimax after Lahoul/Spiti)

Hope this helps.

Like the Manali will be an anticlimax part.. So very true, especially after having a go at Lahaul and Spiti.

Drop Spiti completely. From Manali you can go to Kasol, then to Shimla, then to Delhi.

From Shimla you can get a 10.15 pm Volvo bus to Himachal Bhavan, Delhi. Saves a lot of cash.

If you do go to kasol, plan for a one day trek and halt at grahan. Is beautiful.

In my signature is a report about visiting Kinnaur and Spiti. It should give you ideas about what to see and how to plan. If you need only cost and phone numbers skip to about page 8 or ten, all your questions re: homestay etc are answered there. Call the phone numbers given and you'd be fine.

Kaza to Shimla in a day by car? Should be around 15 hours.

Skip Spiti as mentioned by some one above.

I wouldn't know exactly but I'm guessing around Rs. 9000. Check with some of the Shimla-based drivers mentioned in some threads (search for contacts).
