Itinerary Advice:Delhi-Shimla-Chandigarh-Amritsar-Delhi

Dear All,

Please help us in choosing from the draft itineraries that we have thought of,we have never been to all these places and it would be nice if some one could throw more light on misc issues during travel and which itinerary is more suitable.

Itinerary 1:(Chd Excluded)
26th Night -> Delhi to Kalka (Bus).
27th Morng -> Kalka to Shimla (Toy Train).
27th -> Whole day enjoy in Shimla n night stay in a hotel.
28thmorng -> Travel from Shimla to Kufri and enjoy the whole day at Kufri.
28th night -> Kufri to McLeod Gunj (Bus) (rest)
29th -> Entire day in Mcd and Dharamshala and then night stay in a hotel.
30th -> 3 hr journey from Mcd to Amritsar in the morning ..From Amr to Wagah border and back to board the train at 9.25 from Amr to Delhi.


Itinerary 2:(Chd Included)

26th Night -> Delhi to Kalka (Bus).
27th Morng -> Kalka to Shimla (Toy Train).
27th -> Whole day enjoy in Shimla n night stay in a hotel.
28thmorng -> Travel from Shimla to Kufri and enjoy the whole day at Kufri.
29 morning ---> Trval from Shimla to Chd
29th -> Entire day in CHD and night at a hotel
30th -> 3 hr journey from CHD to Amritsar in the morning ..From Amr to Wagah border and back to board the train at 9.25 from Amr to Delhi.


All the dates mentioned are mentioned for the month of Jan.

Please suggest should be leave Chandigarh or should be include Chandigarh as MCleod and Dharmahsla would be same as Kufri and Shimla, and does it make sense to dedicate a whole day to MCd_Dharamshala as we have already dedicated 2 days to Shilma+Kufri.

Awaiting your replies on it.

Shimla, Mcleod 2 sides of a coin.

1st being the capital is huge in it's size and a cash rich town(M.P's you know) offers you all urbanized environment from clubs to kind of parlors to pizzeria's to Tommy H.

2nd being a simple living and a high thinking small town who is early to bed and early to rise and offers time for oneself to relish some fresh cooked cuisines and sip coffee in quite.

So actually, You got to pick what you want.

And Yes ! McLeod needs a day for you to breath the essence of town for your brain cells.

This doesn't seem feasible as journey between McLeodganj and Amritsar would be taking around 7 - 8 hours.
Again, journey to & fro Wagha Border would be taking around 2 and a half hours. January would be foggy in the region!

Hence, take care :D

My suggestion- reading through your thread, If I'm a first timer to H.P. I'd see the capital first and would go to Shimla/Kufri than venturing McL- And Chd should be included, it has it's own charm, big wide roads, nice lake, and a composed urban life, Go for it !
