Hello Mr. Banerjee,

If you have some decent enough driving experience then yes, you can easily plan a trip to Kalpa and will be able to manage the roads. Your timings however are a bit strict and since you are coming from far, my recommendation would be that you reach Narkanda only. Spend some time relaxing and exploring in Shimla and Narkanda rather than driving for most part of your trip..

Snow in Narkanda - No
Snow at Rohtang - Yes but only at top of the pass

There are several hotels in Narkanda, just take a walk around and check into any hotel per you liking.

Thank you so much. Can you please suggest me which will be better, Narkanda or Manali Rohtang? Will it be wise to travel to top of Rohtang with Maruti Ertiga?
Thanks and regards

Local cab drivers do their daily trips in Maruti Also so yes, an Ertiga can make it to the top. If you want to see snow then Rohtang would be better than Narkanda.
