Dear All,

We are planning for a weekend trip to Mcleodganj from 23rd to 26th December this year. I would be travelling with my family including my one year old baby and planning to hire a car for the entire trip (Delhi - Mcleodganj - Delhi). I need suggestion from my fellow Indiamikers on below points-

1. Considering it would be an approx of 12 hours drive, is it feasible to travel with one year old baby?

2. How is the road condition now a days? How much time it would take to reach if I take 3-4 breaks midway?

3. What would be the best time to start from Delhi? If leaving early by 2 AM, we would be able to cover major route by mid-morning and reach Mcleodganj by afternoon. But we will also need to take breaks for my baby. Is night driving safe for the route? Please suggest a plan (when to start, where to take breaks and if possible, where we can take longer halts)

4. I hope Dharamshala and around places allow taxis from outside.

5. Last point where no one can say definitely but only predict- what is the general weather condition of Mcloedganj during end December? I am asking this question only because of my one year old baby who would be travelling for the first time to such a cold place.


Thanks!

1. Considering it would be an approx of 12 hours drive, is it feasible to travel with one year old baby? = yes, mostly roads are good. would suggest you to book an innova instead of etios / dzire. tru, it will cost more but the comfort level of innova is simply a class above (for babys' comfort).

2. How is the road condition now a days? How much time it would take to reach if I take 3-4 breaks midway? = good to excellent. no need to worry.

3. What would be the best time to start from Delhi? If leaving early by 2 AM, we would be able to cover major route by mid-morning and reach Mcleodganj by afternoon. But we will also need to take breaks for my baby. Is night driving safe for the route? Please suggest a plan (when to start, where to take breaks and if possible, where we can take longer halts). = you will be mostly covering delhi-chandigarh stretch during night so its ok. take halts as per your convenience. as its mostly national highway, restaurants/ dhabas are amply available.

4. I hope Dharamshala and around places allow taxis from outside. = yup

5. Last point where no one can say definitely but only predict- what is the general weather condition of Mcloedganj during end December? I am asking this question only because of my one year old baby who would be travelling for the first time to such a cold place. = as of now weather prediction for next week is clear weather. but do carry heavy woollens esp for the little one.
O mine is the lone trail, the hard trail, the best,
Wide wind, and wild stars, and hunger of the quest!

My little used to be an avid traveller till he turned one. Now it's a full time job for the missus to keep him entertained and happy for barely half an hour till we take a stop. After that I have to spend some time running after him or carrying him He is just a little over fourteen months as of a now. Best wishes to you
