The train from delhi to Kalka isis 'Kalka Mail', a very historic train on this route (Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose took this train in 1941 escaping from British house arrest).

This offers a comfortable enough journey in 2AC. Of course, 1AC would offer more. Although I booked 2AC which is very comfortable, the only thing that is very bad about this train is late arrival.

We drove by ourselves and thus it was fun. The route on hills was scenic with river flowing underneath. We even stopped at that junction while returning back and had good fun as we sat on chairs with our feet dipped in river. However while returning we faced jams and thus kids became cranky. But overall it was a great experience and worth it.

good road, to drive, some part of the road broken hence needed to divert the route. Trees being cut on the way hence the road was blocked for some of the parts. There was some water canal on the way where we stopped to take some pics etc.

It was good to travel by train from NDLS to Kalka after that we have taken cab to cross to border and stayed in a hotel for a night. then we have moved to Chail next morning. It will be a refreshing journey and you can avoid the risky travelling at night.

The roads are excellent till we reached Panchkula and also till the Himalayan Range Road, but afterwards the roads till Chail were bad (approx. 100 km. Of this stretch was bad).

There was a bridge, when we were approx. 18 km. Away from our hotel at Chail, which was broken, hence we along with several other cars had to drive on the waters and cross it, it was just 30 meters long stretch, but it is known that this bridge has been broken since the last 3 years and not been repaired yet. (at-least till 17 June 2015).

Chail is located at a distance of around 400 km from Delhi. Situated at an altitude of 2,226 metre, Chail is 45 km away from Shimla and was once the summer capital of the princely state of Patiala. Chail is well connected to Delhi by road, bus and train. However, the best way to reach Chail from Delhi is by car, which will take close to 7 hours. Although the journey is a little long, the ride makes up for it as it provides scenic views all the way. From New Delhi, tourists can take the Karnal - Ambala - Zirakpur - Kalka - Kandaghat - Chail route. There are several pit stops travellers can make along the way. Apart from coffee shops and fast food joints, travellers can stop at are the dhabas in Murthal, Karnal or Kalka, and also spend some time with nature in Kandaghat before heading to Chail.

Transport options from Delhi to Chail

Delhi to Chail By Car: By car: Hire a cab to drive down to Chail, which takes close to 7 hours. The approximate cost of cab per kilometre is from INR 8 to 11 depending on the type of car hired.
