Hi all.

This forum is very cool and there are lots of suggestions from expert travellers.
I am planning my honeymoon in shimla & manali and here's my rough plan -
1) Go to Manali from Delhi by volvo
2) Spend 4 days in manali (maybe 5 if there's enuf stuff to do)
3) Drive in a car to shimla.
Is the drive worth it? ... I mean is it a drive that offers lots of scenic vistas?
My plan is to cover Naggar, kullu on the way to shimla.
Is the time sufficient to fully see naggar? I guess only shawl industry in kullu to see.
4) Reach shimla by night
5) Spend next day in shimla, kufri chail etc
6) Drive to chandigarh and take a flight back to delhi OR Train from shimla to Delhi

thanks in advance!

Hi, Yes the views between Shimla & manali are not to be missed,
look at these pics here
some of these photo's are of Malana village which you won't see but the ones showing the river are on the main kullu valley road just above Mandi. If you wanted to be more adventurous you could turn off this road at Aut on your way back to Shimla & travel over the jalori pass for some real unspoilt scenery.There is not much to stop off for in Kullu but Nagar is definitely worth half a day there's plenty to do & see there,but it's only a 30-40min drive from Manali, so a day trip from Manali is easy. Also see Vashisht village only 15-20min from Manali. KK

Your plan looks pretty good,Kullu doesnt have anything worthwhile so give it a miss.
