There should not be any problem during the intended period even if there is snowfall. These roads remain blocked for very few hours even if there is snowfall.

Even if you are unable to visit Kothi, Solang Nala and Rahala (as may remain fully covered with snow) you can visit Vashisht, Hidimba temple and Market in one day

You will be reaching Majnu Ka Tila or Kashmere Gate, Delhi earliest at around 7 AM hence it seems not possible to catch 8:35 am flight from Delhi.

Thanks Prakaant. I have few more queries
1. How far Manju Ka Tila or Kashmere Gate from Domestic airport ? Will i be able to catch 9:45 am flight ?
If i miss this 9:45 am flight i have to wait for flight until 4:00pm .
2. During onward journey my flight arrives by 10:50 am at Delhi ... i have booked Howarda-Delhi-Kala Mail which departs at 9:25 pm .. is there some place where i can dump my luggage and get around city for couple of hours ?

HPTDC's last stop possibly would be Mandi House.

There are high chances that your 9:45 am flight could be delayed / cancelled due to fog since you would be traveling the first week for February.

You can use the cloak room at Delhi railway station.

You may book a cab and reach domestic airport in next 45 minutes.

You may put your luggage in cloakroom of railway station (from where you have to catch train) and collect it once you return.

no, it isn't a great idea. Im sorry for being candid. Any bus will take atleast 8 hrs to reach Chandigarh in Feb. The roads though nt have traffic, the buses follow a schedule as people from other villages and towns use these buses. The bus stops 20 mins at Kullu, 30 mins at 2 other places. Start in the afternnon from manali & take a night train from Chandigarh to Delhi
