Experience was good by road. We went there by taxi and it took 12 hours to reach the destination. We went from Chandigarh via Yamunanagar Road, but there were lots of traffic at Yamunanagar. I would like to advice that Dehradun via road will be good rather than Yamunagar. It will save you from traffic congestion.

It was my own car, so all my needs of comfort are taken care of. I can load as much luggage as I wish to carry or have purchased. It is utterly funny having to write the experience of travelling in own car! It is having to write about family member, I mean, it's there, always. I can follow the navigation, stop when I want. There is no time constraint, no hurry, no worry. Just that the servicing and fuelling have to be taken care of. Winter garments, can just be stocked in case of emergency, cushions can be carried for extra comfort. Hey, it is really funny finding the advantages of own car.
