After visiting Chandigarh next turn was to go to cool MANALI. We choose to go by car rather than bus, the road trip was very good and the scenery was amazing but it was more time taking. I thought it might take more then 5 hours but the weather made my day cool and hotel was amazing.

It was a good, bit long and tiring but it was fun to travel. Everyone should go by bus. Sleep, play cards and staff are very helpful. Overall, it was a awesome journey.

Though journey by car is long enough and tiresome but its totally worth it. The beauty of the scenery is just beyond the excellence. One can just not resist the pleasantness of atmosphere, traffic free roads making an awesome experience of a perfect romantic long drive. The roads are clean and tidy which makes a long drive even more memorable and pleasing one. The restaurants are available throughout the way which soot-hens the tiredness of the long drive.

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.
