Daelhi - Rohtang by Bus

Rohini - kashmire gate 12
Dinner - 40
Delhi- chandigarh 210
Chandigarh- mandi - 150
Mandi- Manali - 250

Yet again. On 24th May was coming back from office. Quite jobless kind of day and boring too.

Wanted to repeat Mcleodganj trip and this time thought of going to manali.

Reached isbt at 2300 . Don't know why but am in love with this place. But was quite dissapointed to know that there is no bus at his hour to manaloi. No volvo ,deluxe. Word of coution for folks travelling to manali, book your tickets in advance and generally last volvo leaves at 1800.

So again back to the same search. Go where is the best bus is going. So finally stood in aque for 1 hour to get ticket to chandigarh.
Reached chandigarh at 5 30 am. Now another word of caution. Chandigarh bus adda has changed from sector 17 to 43. So please check in delhi itself , if bus would stop at sector 43.

No volvo or delux bis available in chandigarh. Himachal road transport zindabad till mandi.

Manali- Delhi Volvo- 250
Manali to Rohtang - Alto 900
Lunch- 315
Room: 250
Magic tricks learning: 200

So sunday morning got up at 6 and was ready to go to Rohtang. But could only go till byasnala due to excess snow. Met vinay in between in kothi. that place was too commercialized.Probably the best part was drive from manali to solang valley.
Back to manali by 3 , had some grub in German bakery. Back to delhi at 7 :00 Am on Monday morning.Awesome trip that was.......
