It is risky to travel by car due to hilly area but you will enjoy the sightseeing. Travelling by car you can click photographs and can enjoy with your friends and family members. My advice to travellers please travels during day time because of hill area and traffic and during day time you can enjoy the sightseeing.

The journey by car is better than by bus. I would say you can go by flight or by car as we were in a group so we preferred car or a SUV. In the way there are many hotels especially the foods in dhaba are all very cool and good. As it was night we couldn't watch the sightseeing.

I have travelled through Chandigarh-Ropar-Kiratpur-Sundernagar route and started at 6.00 am. First half of the journey was the worst experience due to bad road conditions and traffic from Kiratpur onwards till Mandi. From Kullu to Manali approximately itís 60 kilometres. It was a wonderful experience. Total journey was too long takes approximately 10 hours.
