Day 1: Chandigarh – Manali
Your pickup will await you at Chandigarh after which you will proceed to Manali. Be enthralled with wonderful sights and attractions along the way, including Sundernagar Lake, Pandoh Dam, Mandi, Mini Vaishno Devi Temple, Hanogi Devi Temple and the Kullu Shawl Factories. Reach Manali by nightfall for an overnight stay at the hotel you check into.
Day 2: Manali – Rohtaang Pass (Up to Snow Line) Solang valley
Start Day 2 with a hearty breakfast followed by a trip up to snow point along the Rohtang Pass. Make sure you carry along warm clothing like sweaters, overcoats, shawls, caps, socks, gloves and sport shoes as it can get very cold near the snow line. Rohtang Pass lies at an altitude of 3940 meters and is mostly covered with snow the year around (except the snow point). The Pass is also 51 km from Manali which is why Day 2 is spent entirely at snow point, admiring the majestic beauty of the snow covered Rohtang Pass. Return by night to Manali and get some well needed rest at the hotel.
Note: Sightseeing at Rohtang Pass is subject to a token pass. In the event we get a token pass, an additional fee of Rs.550/- will be added to the package cost (towards token pass fees). In the event we do not get a token pass, you can negotiate directly with local cabs to take you to the pass and back.
Day 3: Manali – Kullu – Manikaran
Following breakfast on Day 3, proceed on the onward journey to Manikaran, stopping at Kullu on the way. Some must visit sights in Kullu and Manikaran include the Kullu Shawl Factories, hot springs, Parvati River, temple of Lord Shiva, Kasol and Shree Gurunanak Dev Ji Gurudwara. You will return back to Manali by evening for an overnight stay at the hotel.
