Do let me know your views if the above is fine.

Had the following questions

Plan to hire a driver and Innova from kathgodam

1. How would the weather be during mid to end Oct ?

2. Would it be considered off season in diwali and post diwali ?

3. Any reliable driver contact with Innova ?

4. How are the conditions of roads ?

5. Are the travelling times mentioned realistic ?

I think you definitely should hire a vehicle to take you all over the place. Use a central hotel to book and a roundtrip transportation. Its possible you may have to over pay a bit.

The places look well selected. Oct should be good weather with winter just getting started. But it would be good to some warm clothes. Surely I dont think it would be off-season. (I would let others comment on that)

Difficult to find a reliable contact. My only recourse in such cases would be to book a good hotel and ask them book a roundtrip and pay for extra margin which the hotel would charge.
