Take a early morning bus to McLeodGanj. Check into your hotels. Visit Dharamshala(Famous cricket stadium and other tourist attractions) along with sightseeing around McLeodGanj, home of Dalai Lama. There is so much to explore in McLeodGanj, it is one of my favourite towns in Himachal. If you want to include a trek, you can do the beginer trek of Triund near McLeodGanj. It can be easily be done in a single day. If you’ve come by flights, you can extend your trip to Manali & Kasol. If you’re short on days, you can get back to Delhi or Chandigarh, and take your flight/train back home.
