People travelling to Manali from Delhi have only option to reach by bus. Several private and govt buses are operated daily for comfortable journey people choose overnight Volvo journey. But in our case we did it totally opposite we took ordinary bus in early morning from Kashmiri Gate Bus Terminal Delhi. It was the month of July and weather was quite supportable. Cloudy sky and blowing cool winds helped us enthusiastically. Bus took its first stop at Karnal for breakfast. Like all other co travelers we had Paratha chhole and curd which was Rs80 per plate containing two parathas. For further journey I took hing goli from there. Our next stop was the beautiful city Chandigarh Sector 43 bus stand where all govt buses take halt of thirty minutes. So after the thirty minutes bus took the road t ...Read More

Due to foggy weather, our flight was delayed. So we missed our private volvo from Delhi. We have no option than to go to ISBT, Delhi and catch HTDC (Himachal state depo.) bus. The bus was ordinary, Non-AC 3*2 seating. But the journey was awesome. You can take this option.

"Be careful while driving in the hills "

Roads till Chandigarh are silky smooth but after Chandigarh the roads start meandering. You have to be careful while driving in the hills. The trip on your own car takes generally 15-16 hours but it's better than travelling in a bus. Thankfully the roads to Manali have been broadened and the drive has become a lot easier than the old days.

I thought Government buses would be unsafe so made a booking through Makemytrip. Com in Monal Travels Volvo bus from Rs. 2000 for both. Initially for boarding the luggage itself the helper of the bus took Rs 10/- for each luggage from us. Later in bus our seat numbers was changed with some mere reasons as online booking system is faulty to the greater dismay the bus met with an accident in Punjab. The accident was entirely due to the drivers fault I heard the fellow passengers say that since I just woke up as I heard the bang of the bus. I lost my purse with Rs. 5000 in it, still now I haven't got any contacts from the travels side even tough I had given my contact number to them and asked just to return back my PAN card at least. Thanks god it happened in Punjab not in any of those ...Read More
