Word of advice, make sure your bus has heat so you don't freeze. We made that mistake on our honeymoon. It was a very cold, long trip.
My brother-in-law swears by volvo buses, perhaps just make sure the company and bus is good prior to booking? With the elevation though I imagine the roads would be quite winding and a bit slick...

In hills you wont face fog , fog occurs in your case in plains of Punjab moment you enter Himachal border there wont be any fog except near bank of Satluj and Vyas river
I never heard that due to fog any accident in himachal , road is made of coaltar not mud how it will be slippery and there is no way its snows too much and your bus drive on it you will be stuck whreever you are but then again if you too afraid why even get out of house

So, akashsach and jn.rounak, did you guys take the Manali Mail Volvo then ? If so, how was your experience ? Any idea how it compares with HPTDC or HRTC Volvos ?

Thanks guys,
Manish
