"Safe night journey from Manali to Chandigarh"

We booked our travel from Manali to Chandigarh through himachal Govt buses. Believe me the night journey was safe and driver was driving very carefully in such critical roads. You will get the himachal Govt. bus office in Manali bazaar & the staff will guide you very nicely. They will give you options to reach your destination. We travel in very reasonable amt from Manali to Chandigarh where people unnecessary wasting many for private cab.

Travelled by a private AC bus and it was a good bus. Clean with AC working really well. Seats were comfortable and atmosphere inside the bus was nice. It stopped twice on the way for refreshments. Reached Chandigarh within nine hours and travel was good and comfortable. Roads could have been batter but I liked the experience.
