Thoroughly enjoyed the drive from New Delhi to Shimla. The road condition is excellent and the scenic beauty along the way is par excellence. We had taken a package conducted tour of Himachal which included a tour of Shimla, Manali, Dharamshala, Dalhousie and Amritsar.

Travel from Delhi to Simla was hassle free to say the least; the road is very good and it took us 8 hours to reach including a break for lunch, on entering Simla it was little crowded. The Google Map made us reach the hotel very comfortably, was little confused entering the final lane. We did have an adventurous journey. More »

A wonderful time driving in the hills, the biting cold, the snaking roads, the floating clouds and the smattering of the rain, good roads, good eating joints and a laid back traffic, in no hurry to get anywhere. Small towns and shacks drift into the rear view mirror as you race into the ever rising altitude, the engine straining, a echo in the head, riding on to Shimla More »

A very nice drive with family on the GT road with lot of place to stop by for eats. The hills roads are also very nice as Shimla is the state capital. Roads beyond Shimla are in mess, especially Kufri to Chahal and very narrow. Avoid short cuts in rains as they can be dangerous. Drive in your lane and don\'t stop anywhere for a photo session. Giani dhaba at dharmshala has lost its sheen and was once a must stopper More »
