HP and UK - that is a very broad scope
which parts of HP attracts you?
Kinnaur?
Spiti?
Chamba?
Kulu?

Which parts of UK attracts you?
Kumauon?
Garhwal?

If you are backpacking then I assume you will be using public transport only. In that case 15 days is good for one state only - that too parts of it.

Are you very used to cold weather(and roughing it out)? otherwise I would drop Spiti. Spiti will be snowbound with (almost)no accommodation.
Even kinnaur(kalpa, sangla, chikul) will have very limited accommodation before april.

It is snowing as low as Shimla, as recently as day before yesterday. Check weather reports before you go. For some idea of Kinnaur have a look at my report in signature. I went by public bus and it was a low budget trip. Should give you some idea.
