    Hi Rudranil - Plan 1 looks better to me. Kaza - Manali route will probably not open by June 1st.

    Thanks, Vargis Bhai for your quick response.
    Will Rohtang Pass be open by 1st of June?
    Kinnaur -Spiti or Manali-Rohtang --- where will I get to see more snow? Will I find snow enroute Kalpa to Sangla/Chitkul?
    Which one will you recommend ---- Manali trip or Kaza trip for the dates I have mentioned? For me every option is open. Please see the following Manali itinerary and suggest.

    24/5 Shimla
    25/5 Shimla to Kalpa via Sarahan
    26/5 Kalpa
    27/5 Kalpa to Sangla/Chitkul
    28/5 Sangla/Chitkul
    29/5 Sangla/Chitkul to Rampur
    30/5 Rampur to Tirthan Valley; Stay in Gusaini for birding
    31/5 Gusaini to Manali
    1/6 Manali
    2/6 Manali to Rohtang
    3/6 Manali to Chandigarh

    Waiting for your response. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Rudranil - Both are equally good choices and places to visit. Hard to pick one ..... Entirely your choice which way you want to head ...

    Rohtang will be open by June 1st but Kunzum Pass may not.

    As of now, the estimate is that yes it will be open. To be on a safer side though, I will suggest that you delay your trip by a week
