5000-7000 is more than sufficient for Manali trip including Rohtang pass along with Solang valley.
the best time to visit is Jan to mid-June so that you can actually enjoy the snow.
your budget will largely depend on how you want to cut your cost.
the first thing is the bus ticket from Delhi starts as cheap as 850 bucks you can use Paytm/Redbus app for booking which will further help your cost-saving cause.
hotel booking needs little extra searching and it allows you to book a hotel for 2persons under 1000 bucks per night. try to choose a hotel near Mall road that saves lots of other extra costs of transport.
if u have a group of 4 you can book your own taxi for Rohtang pass for 4000. which can go higher in peak season. otherwise, you can book a bus service from mall road as well. make sure to leave early in the morning to avoid traffic also it allows you to visit Solang valley free minded. there quite a few activities to be done.cost of which is not included in my estimate.
Budget depends on your trip duration and your hotel expenses.. If you want to enjoy chilling winter,then make your plan during December to Early February.. otherwise you can also make your plan during summer
If you are looking for snow go in december and jan
This year it was snow in feb also
Or if you just want cold weather and nature you may go now also..
You get good hotels of all budget in manali..check online in advance
Twice in year is best time...
one is in snow and one is current time which is summer...
summer time place is very crowded and happening...
in winters you will see beautiful snow... but yes there won't be much to so anything in winters..
will suggest if you are thinking of summer vacations visit there.
There are two seasons to visit Manali. and both seasons will show you a complete different yet beautiful side of manali. Either you can go in summers or in winters. In winters you will see manali as a snowland, completely covered in white blanket of snow. In Summer, the entire valley turns into a lush green landscape. Gushing parvati river and beas river will add cherry to your cupcake. If you are a snow lover then go in winters but if you love lush green meadows and forest and nature, birds. Then summer is your call. To do a budget trip, you just have to rely completely on shared taxi's and public transport buses. I have done manali kasol and rohtang pass in just 4K from delhi to delhi.
