Delhi to Manali by road is
Delhi (NH 1)– Sonepat – Panipat – Karnal – Kurukshetra – Ambala – Chandigarh (NH 21) –Rupnagar– Bilas Pur – Mandi – Kullu – Manali

Total distance is 550 km.

This would be too tiring to cover in one day by car.

Alternative is to reach Kiratpur Sahib by train from Delhi by Himachal Express/14553.

Train departs at 22:15 hrs and reached KS at 05:48 hrs. One can take taxi from Kiratpur Sahib to Manali. Distance Kiratpur Sahib to Manali is 240 KM.

Unfortunately, there are no hotels in Kiratpur Sahib to rest and refresh after overnight journey.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Splitting up your journey in Shimla perhaps...

Opt for the over night buses Volvo a/c they leave at night and reach the following early morning. They i guess would be more comfortable.
Real freedom lies in wildness, not in civilization.
