Dharamsala — 2 nights

The hill station of Dharamsala's reputation stems from its large community of exiled Tibetan Buddhists, including the Dalai Lama.
Start off your visit on the 3rd (Tue): deepen your understanding at Norbulingka Institute, then buy something for everyone on your list at Maximus Mall, and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Triund Hill. On the next day, browse the range of quality goods at Kushi Boutique, contemplate the waterfront views at Dal Lake, and then relax and rejuvenate at Holistic Massage Centre.

Manali — 8 nights

There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Beas River, take in the spiritual surroundings of Gurudwara Shri Manikaran Sahib, get outside with Rohtang Pass, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
