We had booked flight from Chennai to Delhi, and from there we had booked a private vehicle. We drove from Delhi to Manali. And the ride was really worth as you see the mountains of snow, the lush green farms the rivers etc. We went via Rishikesh. Book an Innova only (if you are only 4) or a tempo (If you are more than 4) as you will enjoy the ride.

Chennai-Delhi-Chandigarh (by Flight) and Chandigarh to Shimla by Bus and Shimla to Manali by Car. The overall travel experience remained pleasant and enjoyable with breath-taking scenery all around. The Manali to Rohtang Pass experience can never be forgotten. The Rohtang experience cannot be written in words but the same remains one to be felt, personally. The whole family enjoyed the Manali Rohtang trip, both ways.

It was an interconnected flight, though was very late but reaching Manali was worth it as it saved a lot of time. Kullu Manali Airport is at a very good location amidst the big Himalayas, also Beas River could be seen meandering through mountains as we reach the airport in Kullu. Overall, a respite from urban heat and rushed life and enjoyed my travel to the Himalayas and the hotel staff made it more comfortable for me.

My travel experience was good as it was my first travel through air. Check-in was smooth and the departure time was 7.05 am morning. The bus was air conditioned and well-maintained, legroom and the seats were ok for a short 3 hour flight. Though the flight took off 15 mins behind schedule, it landed at Delhi on time. The aircraft was well-maintained and the staff were very helpful but the food options available were pretty limited.
