Both Himachal and Uttarakhand are very nice in October. However, it is raining very heavily in Himachal. So please keep an eye out for the weather, especially if you are planning to go in the first week of October.
Well, I would recommend you to go to Himachal, there are lots of awesome places there you can visit during this time when winter is just beginning there.
Weather would be pleasant to go around. You might get little snowfall as well.
Some of the places you can plan to visit :
Hey Gaurav, The best off best places whats north india can offer you are shared equally between these two beautiful states of India.... Himachal Pradesh :- Thirthan valley
Chitkul Uttarakhand:- Rishikesh
Mana Village Haridwar
Chamoli Happy Travelling!!!
Hi Gaurav, October is an amazing time to visit the Himalayan region especially states like Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand. But as per the current weather and road conditions it is not advisable to travel to any hill retreat in both the states.
It's raining heavily from past 2 days, resulting into landslides and floods in areas like Kullu, Mandi and Chamba. Shimla even experienced season's first snowfall. I will suggest you to postpone your plan till the conditions get stable in Himalayan states. You can anyway travel to Rajasthan (Jaipur, Bundi, Udaipur and Jaisalmer), Madhya Pradesh (Bhopal, Chanderi, Orchha, Khajuraho).
Both states are good to visit. Most of the Uttrakhand is less commercialised as compare to Uttrakhand so you will find green hills and beautiful landscape there,although Himachal Pradesh is also awesome but during peak season you will find a lot of traffic jams around Shimla, Manali, Dharamshala and this will irritate you.
You can plan for Kanatal, Chakrata , Lansdowne in Uttrakhand .
In Himachal you can plan for Sangla valley, Spiti valley , old Manali and kasol too
