No worry about landslides, however due to recent snowfall(infact a western disturbance is active over north India) you may not be able to drive to Jalori pass.
Rainfall/snowfall is pretty light, so no worry about landslides, and it does not usually snow in the valley

Naman, have a good time!
Do drive to Shringi Vatika, Ghiyagi, and on to Jalori Jot if open. From Jalori, maybe do the six kms trek to Serolsar Lake.

SO here's the plan

Drive to Tirthan,
Thursday night at 0100 hrs leave S.Delhi. Pass Chandigarh by 500 and avoid the Chandigarh-Ropar-Kiratpur madness to reach Bilaspur by 800 am. The carry on and reach destination by 12-1 pm.

The idea is to avoid Banur stretch which was pathetic when I went to Manali in Dec and enjoy the fantastic Ambala Chandigarh highway which now not even takes 30 mins. Timings are such that approximately day breaks near Ropar as the road from there on till Bilaspur is not one of the best. The only issue is little bit heavy truck traffic at Delhi border.

Day 1 -
Rest in the afternoon and go for an eve walk just around the place I stay (will be decided on the fly).

Day 2 -
Drive to as close as possible to Jalori Pass and trek to Serloskar lake. If left with energy trek to Raghupur fort (highly improbable). Come back. Enjoy river bank + some waterfall. Lunch at Shringi.

Day 3 -
Visit GHNP and trek aimlessly / lazily. In the eve try river crossing + fishing. (Does it make sense to instead to Raghupur)

Day 4 - If enthu, rafting in Kullu and then head back to Delhi by 1-2 am or straight away come back by 8 pm. Idea is to avoid entering Delhi after 8 and before 2 am

How does it sound ? What can we add / delete to make it better.

Its so difficult to sit in office right now. Wonder how it would be tomorrow .

Sounds good, Naman.
There is a disturbance over the mountains and it is snowing at the higher reaches around Manali. Around Shimla also there is snowfall occurring.
So you might not be able to make it to Jalori and Serolsar.

Leaving at 1:00 at night is not a good idea, So be careful. Do not cross limits.

Enjoy vacation
