Most convenient but expensive transport option would be to rent a taxi/car for driving from:
1. Manali to Mussorie
2. Mussorie to Rishikesh.

For the less expensive bus option you will need to take buses as follows:
1. Bus from Manali to Shimla
2. Bus from Shimla to Dehradun
3. Bus from Dehradun to Rishikesh/Mussorie.

Both Rishikesh and Mussorie are about 40 km from Dehradun and well connected by bus from Dehradun.

Here is a Dehradun region map:

There are direct HRTC ordinary buses from Manali to Dehradun / Haridwar. See http://www.hrtc.gov.in/hrtctickets/Availability.aspx.

Slight amendment - the route would typically be Manali-Chandigarh-Dehradun-Rishikesh or Manali-Ambala-Dehradun-Rishikesh. If you take a bus going to Haridwar, get down at Doiwala after Dehradun and takes a shared jeep / bus to Rishikesh from there. Mussoorie is not on the way so you can do 35km up and down from Dehradun in between.

Manali to Dehradun - a long hard ride in an ordinary bus which will leave all your bones rattled. Then bus or taxi to Rishikesh.

Manali to Chandigarh - a comfortable ride in a deluxe bus. Then a bus to Dehradun, deluxe or ordinary. Then bus or taxi to Rishikesh.

Manali to Ambala Cantt. - a comfortable ride in a deluxe bus. Then a train to Haridwar, Rishikesh or Dehradun as desired (Rksh or Ddn trains have to go via Haridwar).

Access to Mussoorie is from Dehradun, by bus, taxi or share taxi.

@Dilliwala, do you know how long each of these may take? If going directly from Manali to Dehradun is the shortest, I might be interested in that. I just cant find timings and journey duration anywhere

Certainly both bus routes (Dehradun and Haridwar) show up on HRTC's website (see link given by aarosh). Manali-Dehradun takes 17 hours. Add another 2 to get to Haridwar (but no need to go there, see below).

If you have time, then the best option would be deluxe bus to Ambala Cantt and train to Rishikesh as mentioned in above post. If you don't and are serious about the long bus ride, then take the Manali-Haridwar bus upto Bhaniyawala (near Dehradun airport), from here Rishikesh is only 21 km and you'll easily get a bus or share-jeep. You'll save approx 2 hours this way by not going to Haridwar and back-tracking.
Make sure the Haridwar bus is going via Nahan/Dehradun and not via Saharanpur.
