"Fun route with free flowing traffic"

We were travelling to chandigarh to attend a friends wedding. We were a group of 13 people, Had hired a small bus (Force Traveller). It charged us 18/- a km plus tolls and road taxes. We started out early to beat the traffic. Also we had planned a stop over near karnal for breakfast in one of the many famous dhabas (which are no longer dhabas but hotels). The most famous of them is 'Sukhdev'. Famous for its paranthas. We were able to cover the distance in around 6 hours counting the breakfast break. The ride was smooth. There are multiple gas stations for refueling your vehicle.

"Smooth Journey!"

Kalka Shatabdi departs from New delhi at sharp 7:40 am and reaches Chandigarh at 11:05am. The entire journey is all of 3.25 hrs and is the smoothest that you can ever experience. This is the train to pick everytime you visit Chandigarh because it is the fastest train there is - NDLS CHG Shatadbi(evening) comes quite close and takes 3:30 hrs. However, if you want to make use of your full day be it personal or official, Kalka Shatabdi is the one you want. I travelled in the CC coach - it was an official journey as I had to meet a client but I extended my trip and stayed back over the weekend to explore the place. Be warned - the AC is very very cold and if you do not take a jacket or blazer or shawl, you will experience 3.25 hrs of winter chill you did not expect. Seats were in very ...Read More

"Road in excellent condition for a joyride"

I had to attend a wedding of a friend and decided to go by car to Chandigarh. To avoid traffic we started early in the morning (6:15Am) via NH1. Being early we did not get much traffic, the roads were in good condition and we covered a good distance before stopping for breakfast. Stopped at one of the many roadside dhabas which dots the road. The specialty of the region is parathas and curd and we had our full. Since we had a function in the afternoon, we did not take many stops. The traffic was smooth. You should try to carry a good collection of songs for the journey. There aren't much diversions and turns and the road to Chandigarh is fairly straight so you wouldn't need much traffic directions. Also the road has ample signboards to guide you.

"GT Road was comfortable with toll plazas on the way"

On this weekend I travelled to Chandigarh with my family from New Delhi by my own car. It was a good experience by driving car on GT Road and it was a comfortable journey having 3 toll plazas on the way. The road condition was good. The food court on the way was very good and we have taken the refreshment on Sukhdev Dhaba. The food was delicious especially the paratha\'s with butter, so overall it was a good family trip to Chandigarh and the city was cool.
