If you want to do the whole trip by train, then
Hyd-delhi and then Delhi-kalka. From kalka to shimla you can take a toy train or go by cab/bus.

I dont think there is a rail station anywhere near kullu. You will have to take a bus/cab for the journey Shimla to kulu/manali.

Dear Nayan,

Thanks for the immediate reply.

Do you have any idea whether there is direct train from Hyderabad to Chandigarh. I think shimla is around 120 km from chandigarh.

No, no direct trains between hyd and chandigarh.

The most comfortable way of doing the hyd - shimla journey is to take a late afternoon flight from hyd to delhi and then take a overnight volvo from delhi to shimla.

If you do the hyd-delhi by train (AP express or nizamuddin exp) you will reach delhi in the morning. You can do sightseeing in delhi for that day and take then take the overnight volvo to shimla.

There is no direct train between Hyderabad and Chandigarh.
As already suggested by Nayan change the train at Delhi. Kalka lies between Chandigarh and Shimla and Toy train to Shimla starts from Kalka. Chandigarh is also a nice cityand worth a visit. So you can do Hyderabad - Delhi - Chandigarh. by train. Tour Chandigarh for 1-2 days and then go to Shimla either by Bus / Car direct from Chandigarh or by Toy train from Kalka.
Reg: Shimla to Manali. As there is no train connection, so you have to go by Road only either bus or car. If you can afford then the best would be to hire a taxi from Chandigarh for the entire route Chandigarh- shimla - Manali- Chandigarh.

Planned to travel to Manali/Kullu (Shimla is not in the plan currently) in May 2nd week. I will start from Hyd, reach Delhi morning then catch train to Chandigarh and reach by evening. Stay one night at Chandigarh and then catch a bus or hire taxi to Manali (want to avoid night bus journey from Del to Manali).
Can anybody please inform me that if I can get bus or taxi from Chandigarh to Manali for day time journey?
Also I want to know how is the road condition in that route?
From where in Chandigarh I can hire the taxi or catch the bus (name of the place/terminus etc) to Manali?
If possible please let me know the charges for hiring taxi?

Greatly appreciate your kind responses..

Thanks
