I would imagine that Sangla Valley is at least half the charm of this trip. And it is half of Kinnaur too!
Which part of the route you mentioned earlier is part of the sangla valley ? I am unable to spot ot on the Eicher map.
Is it possible to include a few days touring the Parvati valley too during this trip, considering I have a total 15-18 days Mumbai to Mumbai?
I really enjoyed your pictures of Parvati valley and hence the inspiration.

Tabo - Kaza ( go see Kibber & Gette. Also opportunities for off-roading)
Kaza - Manali (tough day. Kunzum Pass stretch. Losar to Gramphoo is tough!)
If you want to have a bash at Chandratal Lake, you'd have to amend this part accordingly, and add another day.
Manali - Delhi. (long day's drive)
To add more adventure, time permitting, you could do Manali - Jalori Pass - Narkanda.
Narkanda - Delhi.
If you look for a town called Karchham on the map, you'll see a road branching off right. This takes you into Sangla Valley. Sangla village, Kamru, Rakchham, Chitkul. That's the end of the road.
You'd have to return to Karchham and then carry on to reach Powari and further on a diversion that takes you to Recong Peo and Kalpa. The straight road goes into Spiti.

To include a foray into the Parvati Valley, you'd go from Manali to Kasol (little over 2 hours drive) and park yourself there for a day. Most of my photos are from that area.
After Kasol, return to Bhuntar and you can choose to go via Jalori Pass to Narkanda (that means turn off at Aut), or to go straight through to Delhi via Pundoh, Sundernagar etc..
