Solo female in Kinnaur  (3 Answers)

I'm a solo female traveller and going to go to Kinnaur area in early July. I'm taking the flight Delhi-Chandigarh but otherwise travelling w bus (Chandigarh-Shimla-Reckong Peo). I am not new to India (m from Europe) but new as a solo traveller so tiny bit concerned about safety issues.

Happy to get any info on weather, too (whether the monsoon would be horrendous, the landslides get me stuck in the bus overnight, the clouds prevent any sighting of the mountain tops, etc.). Thanks for any advice and info you can share!

Opinion on Chamba  (1 Answer)

Hi, We are planning a trip to HP in the first week of May. We are arriving in Pathankot by train, and plan to retain a taxi for a week and return from the same. Our tentative itinerary is 2 nights in Mcleodganj; to Khajjiar through Chamba Jot and a night in Khajjiar; a day exloring the architecture at Chamba , stay the night in Chamba; move to Dalhousie through the route around the Chamera Dam, and a night and the following day in Dalhousie.; back to Pathankot. We were told by a tourism officer that he recommends against the night in Chamba since it gets quite warm there. Would you corroborate, or do you think its worth the warmth ]]? Please send suggestions towards this itinerary. Also recommendations towards reliable contacts for the taxi would be appreciated. Regards.

Himachal Pradesh  (4 Answers)

Hey Everyone, after some more advise please regarding the 2nd leg of our journey…

We’ll be finishing in Jaisalmer in Rajasthan and looking to head to Himachal Pradesh. The most northern stop in Himachal Pradesh for us will be Manali.

Basically we’d like to know the best route to get us from Jaisalmer to Himachal Pradesh. We’re easy on which way to travel once we’re in Himachal Pradesh.

Places we’d like to stop in HP are Shimla, Parvati Valley, Kullu Valley, McLeod Ganj. Again advice on best routes, tips/places to see would be useful.

After this we’ll be making our way east through Uttarakhand then into Uttar Pradesh. Any information for us to look up in our research would be great!

Many thanks again, Steph & Ant

Tour packages - Dharamshala and/or Leh  (5 Answers)

Hi all

I'm on the lookout for a tour package which combines some trekking/natural/wildlife aspects (I'm an ultra-beginner, who has done, for all intents and purposes, no trekking whatsoever)as well as the monasteries in the region. I am looking for something in early December.

Alternatively, any suggestions on how to structure an itinerary independently? I will be travelling alone, and am looking at about 2 weeks in the area.

Ideally, I'd like to be able to do a travel trip, rather than a tourist trip (so, if there are homestay suggestions, for instance, I'd be happy to hear of those too!). So, if it is tour suggestions, one which allows you time to go off and explore for yourself would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Looking for travel partners for Lahaul and Spiti trip in August  (2 Answers)

I am travelling to the district of Lahaul & Spiti in Himachal Pradesh in August (starting arnd Aug 5th). I intend to travel at a slow pace, visit schools in the villages in Lahaul district for a few hours during the day, to interact with kids, conduct small workshops/ awareness sessions, rest of the time just take in the surroundings, interact with locals at a liesurely pace. Its going to be budget travel in buses, staying at homestays etc. I intend to travel from Delhi/Chandigarh to Manali by bus, then an other bus to cross Rohtang and start with villages, Gramphoo, Sissu, Tandi, then head to Keylong and proceeds onwards to Udaipur, Trilokinath covering the villages on the way.

Any company is welcome. Anybody interested in travelling to Lahaul for any number of days, or heading to Ladakh and have a couple of days to spare, around this time contact me, whether or not you have the inclination towards teaching/kids/schools.

All advice regarding safety, schools, locals, routes in this area is welcome too. Thanks.
