I am planning a trip to Kullu,manali and Shimla(India) at the end of this year.
Would it possible to visit Manali In Mid-December?
I am concern about the weather in December at manali. Espacially heard of Heavy snowfall during this period that blocks the roads.
please guide me on this.

In Mid December there may be an occasional mild snowfall, so dont worry. Roads upto Manali are rarely blocked, roads beyond Manali are usually blocked.

Thank you very much for your quick and supportive reply.
Will appreciate if you can give some more info on travel options available for two persons from Delhi to Manali . (Infact I will start from Pune and will travel to Delhi by Air).

Thanks in advance.

Buses ply regularly from the Interstate Bus Terminal, at Ajmere Gate New delhi to Manali. There is no way you can book in advance. You'll have to go there and find out. Keep a day in hand for that.
Or you can take a taxi. That you can find easily at the airport. I'm not sure how long it takes , but it should take anything around 15 - 18hrs by road. A much more comfortable way would be to break journey at Shimla,around 8hrs and then continue the next day.

The best option will be to travel from Delhi to Chandigarh by Train (Shatabdi) and then onward journey in a Deluxe Bus....

If you start in bus from Delhi, you'll be very uncomfortable and the journey will be tiring..

You can even go to Shimla first and then to Manali - the break-journey will be less tiring.

Travel Tips for Manali

Manali is situated at 2050m. It is a mountain resort where you can do rafting, paragliding, hiking or pm.
The journey itself is breathtaking as you got through really high passes:Barlacha La (4883m), Taglang La (5328m) and Sarchu (4100m).
Sometimes you go up 1000m to get to the pass and then suddenly you go down the same 1000m again. It repeats several times.
The journey requires a good car with an excellent driver, so make sure that you hire a Ladakhis or a Tibetan driver as they drive much better than Indian drivers.
The road is narrow, zig-zagging in a multitude of hair-pins,. It happenned to us several times that the back wheels of the car were somewhere in the air, below the edge of the road, but happily the front wheels were on the ground:-))))skiing in winter. It is also very popular among Indians.
In 70s and 80s westerns hippis were drawn to Manali by high quality marijuana. Nowadays it is easily accessible, as it grows on pavements........... . I didn't chceck its quality:-)

I got to Manali from Leh (3500m), Ladakh. Normally the journey takes 2 days with a stop-over in a campsite. We did it without a stop-over and set off at 1 am to get to Manali at 7 pm.
