Hi there. I hope someone can point me in the right direction.....

We will be visiting Shimla in March 2014. I am confused about how to get to there!!

We do not want to use the toy train from Kalka. I was thinking of getting a taxi or a bus from near Phagwara to Chandigarh or Ludhiana and then a bus onto Shimla. I am having difficulty in finding something suitable - the bus from Chandigargh seems only to leave at 8.30 pm.... Is there nothing earlier? I have checked the hrtc website and it is not much help.... Also I can't find details of any buses from Ludhiana or Phagwara to Shimla - is there not such a service?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

There is 1 ordinary HRTC bus leaving from Chandigarh towards Shimla at 6:00 pm.

There is 1 Volvo RSRTC bus leaving Chandigarh towards at 10:00 am. The RSRTC bus if from Jaipur to Shimla.

Thank you for this information. The RSRTC sounds good unless there is another that leaves from nearer Phagwara??

Would booking this from the UK, nearer the time, be straight forward? - or am I better off booking on the day at the station?

I think it would be better to book this earlier closer to March, since the bus starts from Jaipur and will pass through Chandigarh.
