Bus was supposed to come at 9. 30 as per booking at make my trip. But, it arrived at 11. 45. I was waiting at a petrol pump in front of sector 43, bus-stand Chandigarh with my wife & son without any eatables. Lot of mosquitoes were there. When bus arrived. It was vacant and conductor was offering seats to new passengers at much lesser rate I. E. 800/-

Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) provides the best service in means of safety and security.

Type and Why:-
There are two, three AC bus from HRTC to Mandi. There is a bus at 8 am and is a good one as fare is reasonable and you donít need a sleeper bus.

Service an Journey:-
Comfortable journey and nice view after Kiratpur Sahib but little dusty before the Bilaspur journey begins.

Carry water and if possible take food before the travel.

After a number of discussions and re-discussions, the decided route was via Una-Bhota and I must say the start was scary for the wife at least. I must have taken some wrong turn or so because rather than straight to Ropar, the ride suddenly went through mountains for a while (roughly 20 kilometres or less I guess) and you can understand the fear in wife as I was driving on hills at night for the first time. Even last Dehradun-Mussorie ride was my first hill ride throughout the day. I, on the other hand, had no issues with the route till it was wide enough and was paved.

The roads went up and up, then down and down, then up and up with almost no co-traveller or traffic to pass. It was complete lonely stretch feeling like we were walking into forest, leaving a sense of vulnerability. Anyway it lasted for a while and we were back to plains after that. It was still night and despite of expectations, no sunshine even by 4 am and then just a little light by 4.30 am.

First stop was near some riverbank which had a typical greenish colour. As with beautiful Gurudwaras by side of the roads and finally stopped for tea by 6.30 or earlier before Nangal. In front of the dhaba, there was this vehicle which seemed to have met a horrible fate. It was a reminder to me to keep speed in check even when I was willing to finish the journey faster.

Passed through Nangal but as I saw through the maps and was expecting a sight of Nangal Dam, reality happened to be opposite of that or I might have missed something. Didnít see any pictures worth portion of dam while Sygic kept on driving me for my way. It was tough part about routes as Sygic kept on pushing me on Bilaspur route while I intentionally wanted to avoid it. One minor mistake then backtracks, but finally with help of Google Maps and determination, I managed to keep myself on Una-Bhota Route and then that paid off.
