Hi Guys,

I am planning to do a solo trip to Chandrataal from Delhi using mainly public transport and trek during the second week of September 2014. As per my Initial research from various blogs/travelogues and transport people I have planned the below:

9th Sept : Depart Delhi ISBT 7.30pm (Leave for Kullu in overbight bus - Haryana or himachal Roadways)

10th Sept : Arrive Kullu 8.30am (check-in hotel near bus stand for 1 night / Visit Local Kullu / Get bus ticket for next day to Kunzum La from Kullu - As per info received there is only 1 HRTC bus to Kaza (via Kunzum La) from Kullu which departs Kullu at 4.00am for which tickets are to be taken a day in advance from 4.30pm onwards. I intend to take this bus from Kullu as I do not want to take risk of non-availability of seats from Manali and i have seen Manali n number of times)

11th Sept : Depart Kullu 4.00am ....Arrive Kunzum La 12.00pm.....Trek to Chandrataal (Approx 8.5 kms / 4 hrs)...Arrive Chandrataal 4.30pm...Night at one of the Camps (Jamaica Camps or Tenzing Camps)

12th Sept : Start Trek back from Chandrataal to Batal around 11am (approx 14kms / 5 hrs)....Stay at Chandra Dhaba overnight.

13th Sept : Take morning bus from Kaza to Kullu (rchng Batal approx. 8.30am-9am) or any other mode of transport upto Manali so as to reach Manali by 4pm.......Depart Manali by Evening Volvo to Delhi (if available) or by other bus.

14th Sept : Arrive Delhi ISBT in Morning.

I just have a couple of queries in above regard:

1. In case the Bus from Kaza to Manali is full can we get easily any other mode of transport from Batal to Manali like a shared taxi, Pick-up etc.
2. In case anybody has recently done this trip can anyone throw light on the rates of the camps available at Chandrataal. I was trying to contact Jamaica on his available nos but they were not reachable.

Any opinions / advices would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Atul

You should not face a problem getting into the bus (seat or otherwise) at Batal. There are also shared taxi's available towards Manali.
Last year, I paid Rs 1000/ per night for tent and food. Rates depend on weather / occupancy.

if you miss the bus, then you can catch sharing taxi.
