Hi Friends,

I am planning to travel to Manali from Bangalore during Oct 25 - Nov 2.
Luckily, I have leave got approved and want to make the best use of it.
Not sure if I can plan for Leh-Manali trip as it will be snowing all around.
We have around 11 days to complete this trip. Want to experience snow and cold weather. Other than myself, none in my family have been to places in the north.

1) People Travelling: Myself, Wifey, 8yr old daughter, MIL, FIL
2) Acclimatization issues for Child and Elderly people (above 60yrs)
3) Routes which are safer. Mostly NHs. Please advice.
4) Single driver. Vehicle - Mahindra Scorpio - 2WD
5) Any precautions upfront - sunfilms/state specific rules etc
6) Hotel Bookings and Places to visit around Manali
7) If the route suggested helps me to cover Leh as well, I will be happy

This will definitely be an epic travel for my family for sure.
Please advice.

Simple question:
You wanna visit only Manali or some other places too?Especially Haridwar because its high on priority list for 90% of our friends coming from down south.

Secondly,I am yet to drive to Bangalore and hence can't comment on it.Tips I can give in good numbers.

I'd recommend you to consult AVINDU(he will be best) else Toughguy(he is also great) and for anything above Manali(I am here).

@Vipul:
I plan to travel to Srinagar-Leh-Manali if weather/road conditions permit them. This is my first choice. Stay in places to acclamatize with the altitudes.

If the above option is bleak, then I plan to visit Haridwar,Rishikesh, Badrinath, Kedarnath, Hemkund.
