hello friends.. greetings and smiles..
i m taking a month long vacation in May, 2008 and need tips, pointers and advice from u all on my trip.. i m taking this month long vacation after a gap of about 7 years and i know much has changed as per tavelling, vacationing and other stuff is concerned.. i m travelling alone and
i m posting my itinery which is as follows..
day # Programme
1 (April 30) Leaving Nagpur - Boarding Navyug Express @ 0255 hrs to go to Jammu-Tawi.. whole day in train..
2 (May 1) Reaching Jammu-Tawi railway station at 1350 hrs.. take a bus go to Katra.. take up a room in a hotel or dharmshala.. freshen up and start 'yatra' for 'darshan' of Vaishno Devi and Bhairav..
3 (May 2) Climb down from Vaishno Devi yatra...

i have enrolled with the Youth Hostels Association of India for their National Himalayan Trekking Expedition and m doing their Saur Kundi Pass Trek and Saar Pass Trek back-to-back.. i have to report on 5 May, 2008 at Babeli Base Camp near Kullu for Saur Kundi Pass Trek (Group No. SK_11) and on 15 May, 2008 at Kasol Base Camp for Saar Pass Trek (Group No. SK_15).. As such, from 5 May, 2008 to 25 May, 2008 my schedule is as per the schedule of the trekking groups..

i m not certain about how to travel from Jammu to Kullu.. i have seen online that there is bus service from Jammu to Shimla.. however, i m not certain about the frequency and time taken for travelling by bus from Jammu to Shimla as also the time of departure of the bus.. i am also not certain about how much time it takes and the frequence of buses while travelling from Shimla to Kullu.. i have to reach Kullu on 5 May, 2008 in any eventuality.. under such circumstances, would i be better advised to stay for a day in or around Jammu or to travel down to Shimla / Kullu and stay near those places.. i have three clear days at my disposal (2 May, 2008; 3 May, 2008 and 4 May, 2008)..

after the trekking camp is over on 25 May, 2008 during morning hours, i have to return to Nagpur.. is it more advisable to travel to New Delhi from Kullu and catch a train from New Delhi or traverse to Amritsar / Chakki Bank and catch a direct train right upto Nagpur.. how much time does it take to travel by bus from Kullu to New Delhi and what is the frequency of buses that ply on this route.. alternatively, how much time does it take to travel by bus from Kullu to Amritsar / Pathankot / Chakki Bank.. or should i keep my options open to travel by toy-train from Shimla to Kalka and then from Kalka to New Delhi.. what is the scheduled timing of toy-train from Shimla to Kalka and from Kalka to New Delhi..

oh God !!!.. i m so full of questions..

thanks in anticipation..

smiles for u..
