Yes it is possible , but its like you are trying to cover everything without enjoying, According to me if you can not spend a full day at a place you havnt visited it , you just touched it for name.

Untill kalpa it is mansoon after that desert

??????????? Always travel in HRTC , so no idea

Hey Jini ,

Thank you for your response!

I know i am not staying much in one place, but i have time constraints and i don't want to miss places as well.

However, i am trying to extend my leaves for 2-3 days more, so that i can stay in some places for more time.

Unlike your suggestion of buses, i would like to use cab ( Don't want Dad to travel in buses ). If you can share any contact that would be helpful.

Hello,

Have travelled part of this route and again we are also travelling on the same route on the same dates, as mentioned by you.

From your itinerary there is some care that you need to take

Date Day Activity
09 August 2013 Friday Reach Shimla (Comfortable)
10 August 2013 Saturday Shimla - Kufri - Naldehra - Shimla (Comfortable N Enjoyable)
11 August 2013 Sunday Start for Narkanda and stay in Sarahan (Comfortable N Enjoyable)
12 August 2013 Monday Visit Chitkul, come back and move on to Kalpa and stay there* (Stretched. Please see note below)
13 August 2013 Tuesday Stay in Kalpa (Comfortable n Enjoyable. Stay at Rekong Peo instead of kalpa. Few kms earlier than kalpa)
14 August 2013 Wednesday Kalpa - Nako - Tabo (A little stretched)
15 August 2013 Thursday Tabo - Dhankhar - Lidang - Komik - Hikkam - Langza - Kaza (Stretched. There are lot of beautiful monsastaries in between, where u need to give some time)
16 August 2013 Friday Kaza to Manali via Losar, Batal, Kunzum Pass, Gramphu (Stretched. Treacherous roads)
17 August 2013 Saturday Manali Sightseeing (Comfortable)
18 August 2013 Sunday Manali to Delhi (Stretched. Long journey approx 600 kms)

Sarhan to Chitkul and then back to kalpa, all in a day surely looks aggressive. You will have to start very early from Sarahan. Sarahan to Sangla is fine but Sangla to chitkul is driving over serpentine roads with dead end clifffs. So you got to time yourself to reach here before noon. Most drivers avoid driving here after sunset. From chitkul to kalpa/ rekong peo would be 4 hour atleast by car. Plus if its raining, its gonna be furthermore delays.

All the best. n Hopefully we should be on the road around you.

Cheers
