One of the worst bus experiences ever. Never take these private buses. No professionalism, no responsibility, rude staff, threatening to cancel tickets and leave you stranded, even if you arrived 2 hours early on their request! Multiple private bus bookings go through the same bus, including Himachal Tourist Volvo bus and Cool Himachal Travels. Different people paid different ticket prices

From Delhi to Manali, boarding time was 6:45, they called and asked us to arrive 20 minutes early, but the bus arrived at 8 Pm! They stopped a long time for dinner at a random dhaba on the way, and arrival was supposed to be before 9 Am, but it arrived in Manali at noon after a long stop at another unnecessarily long rest stop at 9 Am. On the way, they attempted to move a mother with a small child away form the child to a different seat just to adjust for overbooking. A/c also dripped onto the seat, blankets had holes in them.

Even worse was the Manali to Delhi travel. We booked a 6:30 Pm bus. They called 4 times to tell us the bus time was pre-poned to 5 Pm, then at 4:30 as we were just getting food, staff called and demanded that we arrive at once or the bus would leave. When we said this is not fair and we had booked a 6:30 Pm bus and already this was too early, they said "fine, your tickets are cancelled then" and we had to fight, and rush to the Bus Stop to board, into seats that were different than what we booked. Just 10 minutes into the journey, the bus stopped for 30 minutes to load random cargo that belonged to none of the passengers!

The travellers should always prefer the AC bus depending on the availability. It's good that one should board the bus in the evening around 5:00 pm so that he/she reaches by the time the sun rises. I found Heera Himanchal good and can be my next times choice too.

I had a comfortable journey while travelling to Manali and I enjoyed at the halts where it stopped. Arrangement in the bus was up to the expectation. Locations for halting were nice, economic, safe and had good surrounding.

I did not have a good experience while returning back. Kalpana Travellers did not seem to be a good choice since no water got provided, place for night dinner halt was not nice.

Please be careful while choosing the right traveller and always carry the required amount of luggage specially clothing as per weather condition.

The volvo bus by which I travelled was good. I really liked it a lot. The bus was really comfortable and we hada great journey. It was a smooth travel overall. The AC was good. While travelling from and to Delhi to Manali, they had provided enough rest stops. Volvo from Manali to Delhi was not semi sleeper, it had only reclining push back seat and AC.(Half point deducted for this). Same Manali to Delhi Volvo have only one charging point near driver seat! There was no individual charging point at seat, as well. I have deducted ONE POINT for their pick up point (Majnu Ka Tila) which is a very isolated area. They had not provided any basic shelter for the passengers waiting for their bus. All passengers had to wait for the bus in the open. I faced one of the most horrible cyclones (on 29/05/2014 evening) at Majnu ka Tila area without any shelter, or any protection! I am very thankful to nearby people who offered us shelter, and we survived. During travelling they provided only blanket and one drinking water bottle and a plastic bag in case of vomiting. They didn't provide any pillows, neck rest, or any light breakfast during the journey. However, I am not sure that these amenities are included in the bus fair or not.. But I was expecting neck rest for better journey. Bus Staff is not clear about the sitting arrangement. They changed my seat twice and send me to the back seat and told me that front 6 seats are for Chandigarh passengers!!! I got 25 & 26 No seat for my Delhi to Manali and vise verse journey even though I had booked my tickets on 24/5/14 . And some passengers who booked their tickets after 24/5/14 were allotted front seat.

This trip to Manali was one of my best trips. I choose to go by HRTC bus in the month of December dated 22 dec to 26th dec. I chose to travel with my friends via semi deluxe bus and chose Volvo while returning. But I would recommend people to take the HRTC bus whose price is Rs. 1199. Don't choose the bus which costs Rs. 995 because this bus offers very congested seats and on the other hand Rs. 1200 bus provide full comfort with luxury.

In my 3 day trip I visited places like hadimba temple where I was fortunate enough that I was able to see a proper snowfall which provided a refreshing environment and a feeling never ever had. For skating kind of activities we visited Solang Valley which was fully covered with snow giving an ultimate feel of fun as you are able to play with snow. We had a visit to Manikaran gurudwara where we found a river whose half part is of hot water and half of cold water. That looks like some kind of miracle and when asked about the hot water from the native people they told me that the water is boiling at a temperature of 99 degree Celsius. So that was an ultimate fun when you're travelling and everywhere you are able to see ice and ice only.

Quite a few advices for travellers:

1. Travellers who want to go to rohtang pass at this time will get dissatisfied as it is closed in these months and open in June. And also people who want to go for adventure then a little bad news for them as the solang valley site came under the purview of government and they had banned every adventure activity. So if you want some adventure go to Kullu where you'll be able to do activities like river rafting, trekking etc.

2. While going to play with snow at solang valley take a dangri suit worth Rs. 250 from the shops in between the way to solang valley which will protect your original clothes from getting wet.

3. Take taxi while travelling to manikaran and solang valley as u will find comfort via travelling by taxi and it just costs around 20-30% extra than a normal bus.

4. Take as much heavy clothes as u can as in this time u are going to experience a lot of cold.

5. If you go than at least one time dine at johnson's lodge near mall road of manali as it is the best, a little costly but worth it.

This was an awesome experience to all of us as it was totally an unplanned Journey. All of us flatmates were having 4 days off on Independence day weekend in 2014. We were having dinner and @9 PM we just packed and heat to Kashmiri Gate Bus stand. Stood in line for almost 5 hrs to get ourselves the ticket. Reached Chandigarh @ 8 AM and after having paranthas with butter continued our trip to Manali with Himachal Roadways bus in which we were stuck in heavy traffic some time, sometime we climbed the bus and journeyed on the top. :) which was awesome and legendary feeling.

Reached Manali @ 4 AM in the morning next day. Then went out to Rohtang for one day with trekking + taxi which was amazing to view the stones and lakes clicked some pictures on the road. Mind the trekking was good with the cold breeze keeping your mind calm and each breath making you more alive, Kullu+Manikaran in one day. In all it was the complete package that you need to get away from the boredom of working 9 hrs a day in the office. It will completely rejuvenate you and make you love the nature even more. Especially the clean air and cool weather.
