I am put off by the thought of a 16 hour bus journey from Delhi to Manali. How about this as an alternative?

i. Fly to Chandigarh, spend the night.

ii. Go to Manali by taxi but split the journey in two days; four or five hours driving each day.

Can anyone suggest a good place to stay a night midway between Chandigarh and Manali?

Does anyone have an idea about the taxi fare Chandigarh to Manali? How much extra would the taxi charge to stretch the journey to two days?

Mandi is the best place to stay.
Rewalsar can be also a good idea to stay in the night, between Chandigarh to Manali

Ofcourse Mandi is the best place to stay enroute chandigarh to manali, but as far as rewalsar is concerned, its out of the way from mandi, as you have to take different route.... so i guess rewalsar wont be recomended to stay enroute.
LiFe Is BeAuTiFuL !!!

Taxi fare will be around Rs. 15 per km, depends on which kind of taxi you gonna hire, and if you are stretching your journey to two days, taxi may charge you anything between Rs. 1000 to 1500 for the night stay.

Thank you for those comments. Perhaps we don't need to keep the taxi overnight but find a new taxi in Mandi for the journey to Manali. Is Mandi likely to have taxis?

We went to Manali from Chandigarh in December 2010 .The indica from Chandigarh charged Rs 6 - 8 per kilometer depending on how much can you bargain.We started from Chandigarh early in the morning to reach Kullu by evening - 5- 6 pm. The next day we went from Kullu to Manikaran and from Manikaran to Manali.

Thanks for the info.

Is Manikaran worth the visit?

instead of flying from delhi to chandigarh pl look into going by bus/train
it would definitely be cheaper and may be quicker.
what time do you land at delhi and what time is your flight from delhi to chandigarh?
also depending on the no of days you want to spend in manali you could check the price for the whole journey.
as it is all the cabs charge for return kms.as vonline posted 6-8 for indica is OK.

I looked at the bus and the train. But the flight leaves from Terminal 3 at 4pm. We arrive at T3 at 12.00 midday. So that fits in nicely. The flight to Chandigarh is only 2,500 rps; quite reasonable.

Thanks for confirming the taxi rate.

Chandigarh - Mandi - Manali on Rickshaw

Hi I am planning a similar journey but on rickshaws, driving ourselves.

We are planning to stop at Mandi over night too, but will that stretch from Chandigarh to Mandi be possible in one day?
