Hi,
You can visit a lot of places in Himachal Pradesh and Uttaranchal from Delhi. One of the most visited place is Manali and surroundings. I visited there last July and it is a great place to be. If going to Manali, dont forget to stay atleast a day in the village of Naggar where there is a small castle and you can stay in the Castle itself. Its good place if you want peace and solitude.
For a close view of Kanchenjunga(3rd highest in the world), you can visit Sikkhim - Gangtok, Pelling. You can take flight from Delhi to Bagdogra and then travel by road to Gangtok (capital of Sikkhim state)/Pelling(at a higher atlitude and offers fantastic view).

getting to Manali - from Delhi, you can take a overnight luxury bus to Manali...approx journey time is 12 hours ...be certain to book beforehand to get a seat in the Volvo bus which is the most comfortable journey option. For stay in Manali, I will recommend Banon Resort which I had visited myself.
