Its 3 places and all places are 7-8 hr to travel between them,means 3 places 3 nights.If taking literally yes you can visit all places but only thing you will do will be continuous traveling from one place to another ,not enjoying any one place.

If simla is compulsory to visit then do Manali Shimla otherwise Dalhousie-Dharamshala.

You need to carry the woolen clothes for both Dalhousie and Manali. it is going to be cold at that time.

Hi Mony,

Yes, you can visit Himachal in Oct from Amritsar, we suggest

1st Day Morning Amritsar to Dalhousie transfer after lunch Half day sightseeing & stay

2nd Day Transfer Dalhousie to Manali & stay (Its take 10 to 12 hrs)

3rd Day Manali sightseeing & stay

4th Day Morning transfer to Shimla & Aafter Lunch Half day sightseeing

5th Day Shimla to Delhi drop

You can cover everything just need to start in morning time.

Himachal is hill area so you need to carry woolen dresses.

Normally sedan cost ₹ 18,000 to 20,000 & SUV ₹ 23,000 to 25,000 included all toll, parking & HP, HR State tax.

I suggest a layover at Dharamshala / McLoedGanj. It is on your way from Dalhousie to Manali anyways. Its alot more scenic and you get to experience Tibetan culture at its best here (probably the only place in the world).
