I want to plan a week's vacation to manali & shimla in June middle.
Want to know what other places can be included. My 16 yr old is looking to ski. Is that a good season? will be travelling from bangalore. air fares to kullu directly were very expensive. was looking to fly to chandigarh / delhi and take other modes of transport.
Suggestions of other places to visit in the vicinity
- activities for teenagers in the area

I went to manali on Sep 2011. I think you will find snow only in Rohtang pass. How long is your trip? Yes air fares to Kullu will be exorbitant. I went to Delhi and from there i took the HPTDC bus. The journey is around 12 hours but most of the hilly terrain will be covered in the night. You wont feel the tiredness. You can include Paragliding and trekking as the teen activities...Bargain wherever you go... i didnt visit shimla. The places to see in manali are:
1) Local sight seeing of hidimba and vashisht temple. tibetian monastery, club house..
2) Rohtang....(takes one full day...check for the route clearance)
3) solong valley
4) Kullu, Manikaran, Jana falls, Naggar.

You would find snow on way to Rohtang Pass. You take take a HPTDC bus / volvo from Delhi / Chandigarh to reach Manali.

- You can do water rafting in the Beas river
- There are a few adventure sports you can do in Solang Valley
- There are a few day hikes options available (if you guys would love to walk on mountains)
