Tireless journey


We had taken Rajdhani till Delhi, traveled in AC II tier. It was a perfect start to a family holiday. Train was on time as usual, veg food served was hot (options are limited) bed sheets were neat/clean so were the toilets. From Delhi we took raj holidays Mercedes Benz Volvo bus for our onward journey to Manali. As tickets were booked before hand through Makemytrip we had no hassle in journey .Distance is a bit too long but the route is pictureous hence entire journey was tireless.

Paradise for foodies with large number of dhabas enroute


Go with open mind, ears and eyes and fairly good appetite. The route once you cross Delhi becomes paradise for foodies with large number of dhabas located on the route. Chandigarh to Manali is feast to the eye with scenic route and all sort of whirling. Make sure your car is in good shape inside out because it will be testing for it.

Best train in India


I got everything inside the train; there was no need to purchase from outside. From time to time vendors would arrive with stuff like food, water, cold drinks, newspaper, snacks, etc. The security in the train is really awesome. There is security personnel with their sniffer dogs moving from one compartment to another. You feel really safe! The staffs are helpful and well behaved too. It takes total 5 halts from Mumbai central to New Delhi; the journey time is 16 hours, 4:40 pm from Mumbai to 8:35 am to new Delhi.

Avoid night travel in this route


Right from Chandigarh to Manali you feel in the lap of mother nature. Small dhabas (eating joints) all the way, so there were no issues for food. Just don\'t stuff too much for comfortable journey. There were many twists and turns so its advisable to start early in the morning, on empty stomach. Have little food on periodical intervals throughout the journey. Just avoid night journey on these route.
