Dear All,
Hi.

Query regarding to Hotels or Resorts in Manali for Honeymoon (5N/6D)? Budget approx average 5000.

we will travel by own car to enjoy the trip, since dont have experience to drive in hilly area so is it safe to drive. Want to know about the road condition.

Pl suggest.

Regards

Is the driver a good a cautious driver in the plains? (Be realistic). Does s/he enjoy driving? Can he start a car from scratch on a steepish incline and go up without rolling backwards?

If no, thenthe answer to your query is no.

If yes, driving in the hills is safe in daytime but a)check the car out completely, including brakes, handbrakes etc and b) drive very cautiously, honking at each turn , c) never in neutral going downhill, d)never when tired e) give appropriate right of way and f) do not overtake or pass at a curve.

It is then quite safe

And I don't think a better reply to that question is possible. I agree with every point.

One more thing I want to know:

While travelling from Jaipur to Chandigarh via Delhi, Do we need to enter in delhi or is there any bypass... otherwise it will take 2-3 hrs to cross delhi.

Driving in hills is as safe as in plains but accidents are dangerous. Be very cautious while at wheels. Don't over stretch, stay in limits in both speed and km coverage in your drives.

Fully avoid driving in nights last but not least get your car surviced few days before leaving.

No need to book anything in november could be a good advice for bunch of friends who are out for kick. But when it comes to honeymoon Planning always pays.

good luck

Please go via delhi. I am assumin the following:
a. You can get yourself over to nahargarh's rear entry and practice on that incline. Manali is then a piece of cake
b. You will be traveling during the week so will get less traffic anyways.
c. Bike in Manali - search up on BCMtouring.com - they had that info
d. Neither route Nalagarh is industrial area - i.e truck heaven. forget it.

You must do - Ambala - Banur - kharar - Kiratpur - swarghat. This saves 10+km, chandigarh traffic and their uber strict cops.
SMASH!!!!

I feel driving on hills is not that difficult as people feel.

If you are a good driver in plains its no big deal to drive on hills. All you need to do is stick to your side and honk on blind turns and keep the speed in control. If you are beginer, concentrate on the roads and turns and let your partner enjoy the beauty of nature on your behalf.

I remeber I had inhibitions on my talent on driving on hills but I directly did Delhi to Mcleodgand and it was pretty good..
A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.

Which bike would you want to take on rent. When you go from mall road to Rohtang pass there are a lot of shops where you can get bike on rent. I generally take a Yamaha RX 100 which will cost you Rs 300 a day which you can bargain. You need to deposit your driving license and bear the petrol money.
