First time I travelled through plane and it's a very nice experience to travel through plane. Jet airline is very good to travel and we had a good time in the airline. Shimla has a nice airport and facilities are very good here. Food were not complimentary it was a paid service by the airline.

Awesome, breath taking and wonderful experience. From Chandigarh i.e. after Kalka, the beauty of Himalaya can't be described in words. Excellent road condition to travel by road. Good motels/dhabas on the roadside if you want to take a break. Weather condition was excellent, even no air conditioning was required while climbing the hills.

The bus was good in terms of comfort and leg space. However, the staff was somewhat rude. To top it up, they asked for money as luggage keeping expenses from every passenger. Even though it was a mere 30 Rs but we didn't understand why they would need to charge us. Aren't those things taken care of when we book the bus tickets? The other thing was the bus driver didn't care about the drop point while dropping us back from Shimla. They dropped us where they had to travel less and not as per the passengers' convenience. This was ridiculous.

If you are visiting Shimla from New Delhi I think this is the best train the Himalayan Queen. The departure from Sarai Rohilla Station, 5:45 am and arrival was at Kalka, 11:00 (Approx). I was travelling in second seating, AC chair car and we did pre-booking of tickets. The stoppages were Delhi Sarai Rohilla (departs), Sonipat, Panipat (30 min halt), Karnal, Kurukshetra, Ambala, Chandigarh (10 min halt), Chandi Mandir, Kalka (Destination). They provide catering food in this train.

Last year on 15th of August I travelled to Shimla with my pals, we already had a booking for the hotel Woodland, we reached there by 6 in the evening and it was raining cats and dogs so it was very difficult for us to locate the hotel then we contacted the hotel staff on how to reach there or...more »
