Manali | 25th Feb - 28th Feb

I am reaching Manali along with my wife on 25th Feb morning via HPTDC Volvo and will be staying at Hotel Tourist. I need some assistance for planning my local sight seeing. Any help will be appreciated.

1. How far is Hotel Tourist from the HPTDC bus stop? Can I get a auto or a taxi? How much do they normally charge?

2. Day 1- I am planning to visit the following on the day of my arrival post lunch. Is it feasible to cover these and what is the best way to visit these places? Short walks? Auto(s)? Taxi? If auto and/or taxi are the preferred modes, how much will they charge?

Hidimba Temple

Manu Temple

Vashishta Hot Sulpher Springs

Jogni Waterfalls

Old Manali

3. Day 2 - I plan to visit Nehru Kund, Kothi and Gulaba. I assume Rohtang will be closed during this period right? Can I accommodate Solang Valley and/or Rahala the same day or should I cover Solang Valley/Rahala/Beas Kund on third day? What will be the best way to visit these places? Taxi? How much will he charge? Also, how good are the HPTDC tours of Manali-Kothi-Rahla Fall- Rohtangpass & Manali-Nagar-Solang. Do they stop in between to cover places like Nehru Kund and Gulaba?

4. I have two more days (including the day of departure - evening) in Manali and need to plan for the same based on the answers to above questions. The other places I am considering are Kullu and Beas Kund. Are they worth the visit?

Looking forward for the help from the destination experts and frequent visitors.

Thanks!

Happy Holi

Gulaba might be closed if there is snow blockage. However, you can get all the snow activities in Solang. There is nothing to loose if Gulaba/Rahala is closed.
