Awesome small small stoppage on Manali road. Like Bilaspur, Sundernagar and Mandi. But there was some horrible road after Kiratpur Sahib just for near about 2-3 kilometers. Overall, nice adventurous journey. We are really missed that journey. We had stayed at Kullu for a while. And we had taken the river rafting. It was awesome experience.

Good bus journey and staff are very good and seats were very comfortable but pillow was not given by them. WiFi and TV facilities were not available. Manali is best for sightseeing. It is best for river rafting. Mall Road is best. A small problem is of parking. Hotel Yak is best hotel properly cleaned and hygienic. Tibbtian market is good.

I reach Chandigarh Bus Stop and bus reached here on the perfect time and I appreciate the way they talk and well-maintained seats. Also I feel so relaxed and conductor stops the bus for food and also driver drives smoothly and fast we reached Manali in very less time. Enjoyed Manali tour very much with all my friends. Manali is very good place to visit all are requested to visit Manali at-least one time you enjoy very much there.

We reached Chandigarh by 12.30 and hired the car and it took almost 10 hours to reach the hotel. The journey was too long but also enjoyable and memorable. On the way to hotel we had lunch on dhaba. The views of hills and rivers were very beautiful. The climate was too good.

Travelling by car is good option. We easily reached the place where we have to stay. Stopped in some places for food. But one must be careful while driving because roads are narrow. Overall, enjoyed the travelling and weather when we are going as weather was cloudy.
