A nice experience

Mode of Transport: Bus

The experience was good enough, the service was also pretty good. The bus was on time from city and reached at the destination almost at time. The stoppage of the bus was also pretty less compared to others. So I advise people to choose this service. People should visit Manali as it's a good place for spending holidays. Also Rohtang is a good place for masti.

Cool tempo traveller and driver was helpful

Aug 20, 2015
Mode of Transport: Taxi

We already booked tempo traveller for 10 people and driver was so good and well-known of local areas of tourism. The driver was very well versed with local language so it was good to have him.

The bad thing is that air conditioner does not work while you are going towards up side of roads so you feel sometime very hot.

Awesome sightseeing enroute

Mar 16, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

Awesome sightseeing while driving with awesome food in dhabahs, waterfalls near River Beas in the way to Dalhousie to Manali and also in the way from Mandi to Manali. Awesome scenes in the way from Kullu to Manali. If any one wants to go to Manali then don't take buses. Either, you take taxi or the best is to have your own car then only you can enjoy the beauty of roads and mountains.
