HI renu... The chances of getting live snowfall is higher in last week dec than 1st week nov. In my earlier mail the time from chd to manali is 10 hours not 20 hours. However the hotels wpuld be around 25% more expensive in last week december than before. From chandigarh you can hire a cab that will take you to manali and back to chandigarh with all the sightseeings included adn dirver, toll and night charges too... An indica will cost you approx Rs. 1850 per day. Thasts a better bet.

Hi
It can snow in manali or rothang pass which is a 1 day itinerary in manali from november onwards but the probability of when is on your luck . A sureshot time for snowfall is 1st week jan eveery year and continues till feb end.
As far as route is concerned the best route from chandigarh is chandigarh--ropar--swarghat--bilaspur---mandi---sundernagar---kullu--manali = 320 km and takes 20 hours bu bus. The jogender nagar route is absurd and there are no trains onwards.
TATA ac bus is available from isbt 43 in chd at 8:30 am and 8:30 pm. Fare around 500.

hello renu :)
not November, neither December, for enjoying snowfall - go to manali at last week of January or 1st week of February (or 2nd week of Feb..then you can attend/watch Manali winter carnival)
