Awesome experiece. Amazing road. This journey was not tiring at all. you get all the amenities on your way. excellent roads. Ample places to rest and relax. Travel by own car or hired car is preferable as you reach with your own convenience. The moment you hit the road, your holiday starts. Once you cross Panchkula, you know where you are headed to. Over all an awesome experience.

"Amazing seating arrangement"

We choose Volvo AC bus and the timing was at night. We really enjoyed our journey because of its comfortable seat. The bus looks good from the outside and inside. What\'s the most inviting feature of this service? There\'s only one answer: Space. Amazing amount of space for the passenger. It\'s just like a business class seat in an aircraft. There is a small tray fitted behind the seat in front, for having food, a magazine pouch, two water bottle holders. The seats have seat belts too. Two small bottles of drinking water, a blanket and a pillow were provided as soon as I settled down in my seat.

Shatabdi as usual was on time and I got the connecting train from Kalka to Shimla, which was one of the greatest experience. People were shouting while crossing tunnels, scenery outside was excellent. Took return tickets from Shimla to Kalka to live the experience once again.

"Beautiful journey from Kalka to Shimla by toy train"

Journey from Kalka to Shimla was the most beautiful journey one can ever had by train. Awesome breathtaking views of mountains are the most eye pleasing experience one can ever have. The journey takes around 5-6 hours which is more time taken by road but it is worth for the visitor’s who were visiting Shimla for the first time. The small stations on the route and the beautiful sound made by train take you to altogether a different world. It seems a path to heaven on which you are travelling.

"My first drive with my husband"

7/7
Posted 25 Sep

Travelled by: Car

Travelled as: Couple

The road drive to Shimla and Chandigarh was my first road trip after my marriage with my husband. It was a memorable trip for me. We both enjoyed a lot. It was the first time that we were going alone with each other and without our friends and relatives. As the Delhi-Chandigarh-Shimla road was very smooth and broad the car was running at around 140 km speed. The drive was full of masti and enjoyment. During the trip we both came to know each other more and more. We ate lot of roadside food. The weather was hot but still we had fun with each other. We had a competition with other cars of which we won everytime. We had a gala time during this trip.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
