Not good but not bad journey

Dec 10, 2015
Mode of Transport: Bus

I took the bus of Himachal Roadways in the night journey & it was Not Good but Not Bad Journey. When I booked the Ticket, the Seat in AC was not available so I took the simple seat in Bus due to which I faced some problem while seating. So from now onwards I will try to avoid the simple seat especially in Himachal Roadways.

A long journey

Nov 4, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

The drive by car is long and you need to take a break at any possible location if along with family. The whole drive is double lane with lots of traffic and passing through UP villages which can be tiring. On way you can also visit Jim Corbett museum. Journey by train till kashipur will be a comfortable option.

Had a good road trip

Jun 11, 2014
Mode of Transport: Taxi

Experience was good by road. We went there by taxi and it took 12 hours to reach the destination. We went from Chandigarh via Yamunanagar Road, but there were lots of traffic at Yamunanagar. I would like to advice that Dehradun via road will be good rather than Yamunagar. It will save you from traffic congestion.

Wonderful drive by own car

Oct 14, 2014
Mode of Transport: Car

It was my own car, so all my needs of comfort are taken care of. I can load as much luggage as I wish to carry or have purchased. It is utterly funny having to write the experience of travelling in own car! It is having to write about family member, I mean, it's there, always. I can follow the navigation, stop when I want. There is no time constraint, no hurry, no worry. Just that the servicing and fuelling have to be taken care of. Winter garments, can just be stocked in case of emergency, cushions can be carried for extra comfort. Hey, it is really funny finding the advantages of own car.
