Greeting from Thinking Particle....!!!

Dear Travelers,
                            Heat waves and scorching summers are making our life quite challenging in the planes of Northern India. Most of the travelers are seeking colder destinations. Himalayas are the best escape from the harsh summers and there are plenty of incredible destinations in Himalayas...

                            Due to its proximity with Delhi, Himachal Pradesh is certainly the favorite destination.

                            I am creating this thread as a place holder for discussing itineraries to Himachal Pradesh... Sharing jokes... Sharing photographs... sharing travel experiences... Information....etc etc... and Most importantly helping fellow travelers planning their trip to various destinations at Himachal Pradesh....

                            For the beginning, I am sharing a comprehensive map of Himachal Pradesh which will help you chalking out your destinations...

http://thinkingparticle.com/files/maps/Important-Map-of-Himachal-Pradesh.pdf

                             Lets fill up this thread with teeming of information about Himachal Pradesh...

Stay hungry... Stay foolish...

Important Information for Foreign and Indian Tourists

As per Government of India's Notification no Home-B (f) 3-17/86- Vol 1 dated 13-12-91, that the Government of India has authorised Himachal Govt to issue inner line permits to visit part of Kinnaur and Spiti regions to a group of four or more foreign tourists sponsored by  the recognised Travel Agent with pre-drawn itinerary. However, Indian Nationals require no permission to visit any part Kinnaur and Spiti. It has been decided that the Inner line area would run from Jangi to Tabo.
Kaza, the principal city of Spiti has been kep outside the inner line area.

Foreign tourists may obtain Inner Line permit from district Magistrates at Shimla, Recong-Peo, Kullu and Keylong, Sib Divisional-Magistrates at Shimla, Rampur, Nichar, Kalpa, Udaipur and Kaza are also authorised to issue Inner Line Permit to foreign tourists. However foreign tourists would not be allowed overnight stay between Moorang and Kaza.

Dear Vishnu,

Thank you for your plan.

Why are suggesting Himachal then Uttarkhand,is it better?

If I go to Himachal, can I go there from Kolkata or I have to go Dellhi first? If I have to go via Delhi then again the problem of Kolkata-Delhi-Kolkata transportation arises.

I am ok with public buses as long as they are not carrying 80 people in the seat of 40. I have seen your thread, infact I spend the whole evening in your blog.

We have never done trekking and both of us are overweight. I can walk on a flat land for 1 or 2 hours but I am not sure about hills as previously it has always been done with the help of JEEP.

We are not really into religious places rather we want to spend them time seeing natural beauty.

The places you metinoed in Himachal is it possible to cover with in 10 days? We live in a city like Mumbai with very struggling timeline everyday. So I dont to rush everyday in my holiday as well, I do not want seat idol in 1 place as well. So, please peak 3/4 place which I can visit properly.

If i go to leh from Manali and come back in the some road isn' t it going to take 4 days? Can I see other places if I be on the road for 4 days. Is there ay place in between where I can stay?

Please let me know your answers.

P.S. - Both of me & my wife are really thankful for your help. She is really surprised that you are helping us so much even though we are unknown !

Thanks once again from both of us,

Roktim

Hi Roktim,
               Well even for Uttaranchal you will have to come to Delhi... If you want to avoid Delhi then there is an alternative route you can follow... It will be entering Uttaranchal from Kumaon region...

--- Get a train to Lucknow from Kolkata and then a train to Kathgodam... Kathgodam is the gateway to Himalayas... From Kathgodam, you can reach Nainital which is very popular tourist destination... its gentle slope...green himalayas but you will not be able to see snow capped himalayas... From Nainital ( After 2 days)... you can head to Mukteshwar which is another town in the foot hills of Himalayas and then head further to Kasauni... I have heard really good things about Kasauni....

From Kasauni, you can go further to Srinagar and then to Joshimath....

There is a reason why I have recommended Joshimath... Joshimath is the only chance to see high Himalayas of India.. It's very close to Nanda Devi National Park... You can also visit Auli (No trekking requires as there is a ropeway)... From Auli, you can get an amazing view of Himalayas...

Joshimath to Dehradun is again one day Jeep ride....

I can suggest you plenty of destinations in the foot hills of Himalays but real beauty of Himalayas lie in interior... I am also considering the inner line permit issue because most of Himalayas lie at International borders....

I don't think trekking would a good idea for you guys because these treks are really exhausting and at very high altitude...

If you are able to solve the problem about train ticket to Delhi then Himachal would be better pick because there are plenty of options for leisure vacations...

Try to get a ticket from Kolkata to Pathankot... (I know getting train tickets is really very very painful in India)...In 10 days, you can visit many places in Himachal... I am suggesting you all the places which are well connected so getting transportation won't be tough but most of these government busses are basic (Without AC and luxury seats)... Busses are rarely crowded in Himalayas...

As you are not interested in trekking then I think...

Pathankot-Chamba (2 night/1 day) - Khajjar (1 night) - Dalhousie (1 night) - Dharamsala - Macleodgunj- Trisunk ( 2-3 days) then you can think of going till Manali...

Manali-Leh will take 4 days... and it's a terrain without any major attraction... Landscape is simply alluring but there is no site to visit... It's very high altitude as well... However there are few small towns on this route where you can get accommodations... Keylong is good....You can go till Keylong while visiting Rohthang pass....

I think i am making you confused with so many of options....

I will be posting some more information with distance and maps...that will be more useful....

Just a suggestion, What you think about Nepal ?,

P S: Helping is a way to promote independent traveling in India and that's the whole purpose of this website... Though I don't hate organized tours, tour planners, tour agencies.... :)

Vishnu Kumar

Dear Travelers... Just posted an article about important distances in Himachal Pradesh...

Dear Vishnu,

Nepal is in my plan too, but as far I know the best time to visit Nepal is Dec-Feb. So I am holding that tour till that time.

Between Uttarakhand and Himachal I like Uttarakhan more. But, I have some questions on that;

1. Is the view of Himalayas can be better seen from Nepal?
2. Can I go to the places of Uttarakhand that you mentioned without inner line permit?
3. As July is the Monsoon season, will I be able to see the Himalayas from Uttarakhand?
4. Is it possible to see all the places that you mentioned within the time line in my previous mail (June 30 - July 10)

There is a direct train from Kolkata to Kathgodam known as Bagh express which takes 36 hours and good news is it still have 40 seats left in the sleeper class (Is it a good idea to travel in sleeper class in summer?).

If above asked questions answer is NO then I am ok With Himachal. I don't have any problem to visit Manali to Leh road if the time line allows me too.

I would humbly request you to design an Itinerary within the time frame of JUNE 30 - JULY 11, from Kolkata to Kolkata. You can drop the religious spots.

Hope to get your feedback soon.

Take Care,

Roktim

Dear Vishnu,

I have searched through Internet and found following places interesting.

Dharmashala - Kareri lake, Mcleodganj, Bhagsu Falls, Dalake, Neugal Khad, Triund

Dallhousie - Satdhara Falls, Panch Pulla, Central Park (Chamba HP), Dainkund Peak, Khajjar Lake

Kullu - Chandrakhani Pass, Pnadoh Dam, Jalori Pass, Great Himalayan National Park

Manali - Rohtang Pass, Beas Kund, Solang Valley

Shimla - Shaily Peak, The Himalayan Nature Park, The Ridge, Toy Train Ride

Please note, I can start from Bangladesh on 16th August and my Indian Visa will expire on August 28, so I have to leave Indian border by August 27.

Now, I guess it is not possible to see all the places within this short period of time, so I am leaving it to you to pick the best spots and give me a plan. I am interested in the toy train ride to Shimla from Kalka (Kolkata - kalka has only 11 seats left on August 17), but if it takes too much time you can suggest the best option.

Please let me know your feedback.

Take Care,
Roktim

Hi Roktim,
                   Admirable work with research... I will not suggest you to try all these destinations during the short span of your trip....You should pick 3 out of five to enjoy it as a leisure trip... I'll suggest you to include Shimla, Kullu and Manali in your itineraries... I am assuming that you will reach Kalka on 19th... On the same day, you can catch a toy train to Shimla and reach Shimla... ( Please check the availability)...

19th Evening: Shimla... (I will suggest you to stay in Shimla for three nights)
20th: Relax and sighting
21st: Sightseeing
22nd: You should start for Kullu Valley... Theere are many places in Kullu valley as you already mentioned... I will suggest you to stay at Jaipur (Don't confuse it with Jaipur of Rajsthan) which is very close to Jalori Pass.... It's a very small village and offers spectacular views of Himalayas... Stay at Jaipur in Kullu Valley
23rd: Stay at Jaipur
24th: Start further for Manali (Stay at Manali)
25th: Rohtang pass and other sight seeing...
26th: Start back to Delhi...

I think It's a good starting point to draft your itinerary... let us know your take... we will edit it further...

Please have a closer look at the map and distance chart mentioned above...

Regards
Vishnu Kumar

Dear Vishnu,

Hi,

I had asked you regarding our trip to Sikkim . Thank u for all your guidance but we have cancelled that trip and we are now planning a visit to Himachal pradesh. I have posted my comment in my account and want your guidance for my travel to Delhi back from Manali. What would be a comfortable way to travel. I will have to reach to delhi by early morning on 16th Nov as I have my train from delhi to bhuj the same day.

 

Can u give me some good options

Hi Srestha,
                 Yaa, I vividly remember about your plan to visit Sikkim.... I already answered my inputs for your questions.. Busses would be the only way to commute between Delhi and Manali... I personally recommend you to book Himachal State Transport busses... They are cheaper and Cancelation charges are less...

                 Rohtang Pass is the prime attraction near Manali along with usual sight seeing, visiting temples etc. Surroundings are picturesque and weather is sublime....2-3 Days are sufficient for a relaxing trip to Manali....

Friends, this is a thread pertaining to travel destinations in Himachal Pradesh for discussing itineraries, travel-plans etc. and for finding travel-partners. I find that many of the posts out here pertain to Sikkim. Foremost, I request the moderators of the site to transfer all such posts to the relevant thread on Sikkim, and let this thread remain as an exclusive thread on destinations in Himachal Pradesh.

Now coming to the next point, I have a couple of travel-plans for Dalhousie and Khajjiar and may be Bharmour, during the period 10-14 August 2012 and again 09-14 November 2012. The first of these two trips is a solo-trip while the in the latter trip, my wife would be in company. Here comes the itineraries for both trips:

Trip No.1

1. Day 0 i.e. 10 August 2012: Overnight journey to Pathankot/Chakki Bank by train. I am holding confirmed berths.

2. Day 1 i.e. 11 August 2012: Alighting at Pathankot/Chakki Bank in the early hours of the morning, wherefrom proceeding to Bharmour. Overnight halt at Bharmour.

3. Day 2 i.e. 12 August 2012: Local sight-seeing at Bharmour, wherefrom proceeding to Khajjiar.Overnight halt at Khajjiar.

4. Day 3 i.e. 13 August 2012: Afternoon 2 pm check-out for next destination Dalhousie. Local sight-seeing at Dalhousie. Overnight-halt at Dalhousie.

5. Day 4 i.e. 14 August 2012: Local sight-seeing at Dalhousie wherefrom proceeding to Pathankot for taking the return train to Delhi at night. Am holding confirmed railway tickets.

NB: May modify the trip on Day 1 so as to exclude Bharmour from the list of destinations to be covered in this trip. May limit the choice of destinations to Dalhousie and Khajjiar only, keeping in view the time-constraint on this tour.

Trip No. 2

Day 0 i.e. 9 November 2012: Overnight journey to Pathankot/Chakkki Bank by train. We are holding confirmed berths.

Day 1 i.e. 10 November 2012: Travel from Pathankot/Chakki Bank upto Bharmour. Overnight stay at Bharmour.

Day 2 i.e. 11 November 2012: Move from Bharmour to Khajjiar. Overnight stay at Khajjiar.

Day 3 i.e. 12 November 2012: Khajjiar and surroundings. Overnight halt at Khajjiar.

Day 4 i.e. 13 November 2012: Early morning 7 am check-out from Khajjiar to next destination Dalhousie. Overnight stay at Dalhousie.

day 5 i.e. 14 November 2012: Early morning 7 am check0out from Dalhousie and proceed to Chakki Bank to catch the afternoon train to Delhi. We are holding confirmed berths.

NB: Here too, we may opt to skip Bharmour on Day 1 and instead add an extra day for Dalhousie.

Anybody wishing to become travel-partners in any of the aforesaid trips may please e-mail me at letsfirstchat@yahoo.com for discussing matters. Viewers may also look into the Munsiyari-Chaukori-Kausani thread on Uttaranchal forum where I have another itinerary laid out for my October trip of those destinations, if in case anyone is interested in becoming long-term travel-partners on those lines.

Hi Niky,
              For how many days you are planning your honeymoon trip ?

              February would be good time to make a trip to Manali, Shimla, Macleodgunj, Dalhousi, Khajjar side of Himachal Pradesh.

              You can pick one of these destination depending upon the days you have for your trip.

Dear Vishnu

Around mid-May we (two couples around 60 years of age) are planning an 8=9 days holiday in Sangla starting from Delhi and reaching Chandigarh by train. Then take taxi and drive to Sangla which I understand is a 10 hours ride so we plan to break it mid way @ Thanedar.
I have following Qs –
• What kind of weather we can expect?
• Any nearby place we should visit / treks from Sangla (keeping in mind our age)?
• Any other useful info, tips etc?

Many thanks for your help.

Hello Sir,
                 Chandigarh to Sangla is not 10 hours drive for sure.... Even with your private taxi, it should be around 16 hours.... Here is my take on remaining queries... Thanedar is a nice place to break up your journey... Had it been Apple time, you might have relished your stay in Thanedar..

1) Weather should be pleasand during May... It will not be freezing cold but still i will recommend you to carry warm clothings, gloves etc..

2) I will suggest you to spend some days in Sangla and some days in Chitkul... Chitkul is the best place for doing self made treks and nothing technical...all the treks are at moderate altitude and can be done easily...

3) I will suggest you to go through following blogs for more information..

is manimahesh kailash trek possible in october ... ? I have 10-12 days with me but really struggling to find  aplace where I can drive and trek both. manimahesh kailash is one of the route i am considering. Kanner kailash may be too difficult.

Hi Chandan,
                   Manimahesh Lake should be accessible till October mid...  After that Tents etc at Dhancho start to recede.. I penned down my experience here in this blog...

http://thinkingparticle.com/blog/manimahesh-lake-yatra-himachal

Kinnaur Kailash might be difficult because trail passes somewhere above 5K meter... Manimahesh is easier considering the altitude you gain but its quite a steep trek... you gain somewhere around 2000 meter in 16-17 km...

Hadsar (Base for Manimahesh Trek) and Kugti itself are quite scenic.... Worth driving...

Thanks Vishnu. have been to Bharmour in the year 2000 to inspect a small hydro plant there. since it was a monsoon season, I didn't spend an extra second there after after work was done. visited a place called holi too where a power plan construction was going on then.  I am looking forward to this trek. I hate walking on snow so would love to walk on a snow free trek :-) .

Regarding kinner Kailash, I still intend to go there but do not wish to reach the summit, rather reach a point from where I could get a decent view. I would imagine that I can get a guide and porter there on the spot. acclimatization during manimahesh would see be cope higher altitude better there ( in theory :-) ).  few days of driving and then will be back.

Most of the people know Bharmour for that Hydro Power plant only... I took a pit stop there when i was visiting Bharmour... Beautiful surroundings... Snow is unlikely till October mid however you can never predict weather in Himalayas..

Kinnaur Kailash trek is not an expedition till the summit rather its a trail around the mountain... Accomplishing Kinnaur Kailash peak would be a technical mountaineering expedition i guess... Trekking trail passes through some villages where you can get accommodation in the temples... Guide, Porter and Mule can be arranged on the spot.... I have seen travelers doing it in 3-4 days (perhaps the smaller stretch)...

Keep me posted about your trip....excited to see the videos of your trip...photographs will also be soothing to the eyes nevertheless..

Vishnu Kumar

that's interesting. everywhere I searched for kinner kailash, I saw a photo of a long standing rock. I thought that rock itself was kailash and perhaps this is the only kailash where you could shake your hand with Shivi ji :-).  makes sense. there was no way people could have reached 6000+ without any technical gear and mountaineering training.  how far is the place from where trek to kinner kailash begins? any idea?

I think you will have to reach Kalpa/Rekong Peo first for arranging guides, porter etc.... This is one of the point to start the trail...another is at Sangla i heard... the short duration version of this trek is organized from Kalpa.... Kalpa will be the place for you....I don't remember the exact village from where this trek starts...

thanks Vishnu. Any idea how long will it take ( roughly ) to reach Kalpa from chamba side... I will be driving on my own.  Map provides many different routes but is there any route that you find most optimum to reach there..  basically, this is what I have planned:

Day1- start from delhi early morning.

Day2. by afternoon reach bharmour.

Day 3. stay there for acclimatization

Day 4. -7. to manimahesh lake and back.

Day 8-12. Drive.drive and drive... towards upper part of himalayas ( rain shadow areas ). any suggestion ???

Back to delhi on day 13th.

does it look ok ??

Hi Chandan,
                   Till Day 7 everything seems OK... You should be able to come back to Bharmour on Day 7 or even before...

Day 5: you will be staying in Dhancho (Base Camp for Manimahesh)... Day 6: you can do Manimahesh and come back to Dhancho.. Day 7: You should be able to come back to Bharmour..

Anyway coming back to itinerary after Day7... you can either take the usual route to Mandi (Via Chamba, Palampur) and then take right from Aut towards Banjar valley....Cross over Jalori pass and reach Rampur.... From Rampur, you need to take Hindustan-Tibet road (NH 22) to reach Kalpa.... that's the  most preferred route to Kalpa from Bharmour...

Another off beat trail can be via Saach Pass which may drop your somewhere on Manali-Leh highway.... Saach Pass is approachable via Chamba but I don't know the exact route as i have never taken it... Saach pass will drop you to a place called Killar (Don't read Killer):bigsmile:...... From there you can drive towards Manali and enter to Spiti (Via Kunzum)...Drive towards Kaza and then Tabo - Nako - Malang - Rekong Peo- Kalpa and exit from Shimla side...

Saach Pass should be open till October end... You may get more information once you are in Chamba...

Saach pass option looks breath-taking to me...

stretch between sundrasi and the rock slide zone was particularly difficult , both physically and mentally. one point to share is that I didnt face any altitude sickness issue this time even though lake is nearly at the same height as is Tapovan :bigsmile:.  so no rants on AMS this time around:D.

First of all, I thank for you for the valuable information you have provided regarding travelling in and around Spiti and Kinnaur. I must say this is the best information I have got about this area so far. Your way of representation is very rational.

I am a PhD student studying in JNU, New Delhi. An enthusiastic traveler, but doesn't have much affordability. As s student, my whole source of income is my fellowship. I save some amount from it and try to make at least a trip per year. This is it's the Spiti valley. I will be there, hopefully, from 7-11 Oct. As you can see, with a budget not up to the mark, I tend to take local transportation as much as possible. And that's where your detailed information about the local buses are of immense importance to me.

I just want to know how old are these information. Because if it's updated, i would solely depend on your information regarding local buses available there.

Please let me know when you are free. I will wait for your response. Once again thank you for those galore information

Hi Sabir,
              This information is an year old but i can get the latest information if you need...  from the recent updates from travelers, i believe its not possible to enter Spiti from Kinnaur side... Route was closed the in the month of July so its recommended to enter from Manali side...
 

Budget accommodation/homestays are in surplus in all the villages of Spiti... you can easily get budget accommodation in 300-400 INR for single traveler.... There are 2 buses from Manali to Kaza otherwise you can also take shared Jeeps those ply on this route... let me know if you need more information, i will be happy to help...

Hi Vishnu,

Thanks for your response.

What I came to know is that the route to Spiti via Kinnaur is open throughout the year, unlike the manali-kaza road which is blocked after mid-October. Then why are you saying that route has been closed? Is it due to some land-sliding? If it is do you think it will be reopen by the time I will be there?

Also I would like to know around which time the Manali-Kaza road gets closed. I am planning to be there on 7th-11th Oct. Don't you think it is risky, 'coz if this route gets closed by that time and the other one being already closed, hope I won't get stuck there?

Please let me know.

Hi Sabir,
             Ideally route from Kinnaur side is open through out the year but this year there had been cloud-burst, landslides in Sangla side and Tapri which blocked the route for some time... It was closed in July but should be open by now.. I don't have recent update on the same... I believe it is open now and you should be able to reach Kaza from Rekong Peo (Kinnaur)... Check with someone in Rekong peo about the road status...

Getting stuck in Spiti is a bleak possibility.... Manali side should be open till October mid or perhaps till October end...
