Hey DryIce

The best time to go apple hunting is right now.
The apple season is due to commence around mid June to mid September.
Along with the apples, you can even steal some peaches and plums. They would be in full bloom over the next few months.

Would depend on the rain I suppose. I can't imagine any problems uptil Karcham. The only lose soil patches were immediately after Karcham for about a few kms. These parts can turn into slush if they get too much rain. But anyway shouldn't be like Rohtang as the traffic is pretty sparse.

Rains can also mean landslides - which is a grave possibility all along this route, even more so near Powari enroute Peo.

I have a few videos of the drive, will be uploading soon.

Hi Dry Ice,

I am planning to do the same trip from Delhi in 3 days (will actually leave at 12:00 AM this Friday) and want to be back by Tuesday 6:00 AM. I would be taking my Ford Ecosport for this trip. Here's My Plan

Friday AfterNoon - Narkanda (Over night Drive from Delhi)
Satruday - Narkanda / Hatu --> Sangla
Sunday --> Not Sure
Monday --> From Not Sure to New Delhi.

Any suggestions for my itinerary ??

Thanks in Advance !!!!

Regards,
BB

PS: Himachal Tourism Hotel in Narkanda (Hotel Hatu) is already booked, any other alternatives ? Or should I push on further on Friday ??

I would suggest you add one more day to your vacation
Friday: delhi to narkanda- 7-8 hrs
saturday: Narkanda to kalpa 8-9 hrs
sunday: kalpa to chhitkul 4 hrs. Explore sangla, raksham and chhitkul on sunday and stay overnight at chhitkul or raksham.
monday: Chhitkul to delhi, A 16-18 hr drive
