Goutom : Ur intended programme is absolutely right.If U wish to visit holy place Amritsar,U should do in this trip only.Its only 510 Kms of road journey[additional>,why not stretch little bit more & cover up this also.This I am saying,if U are residing in Kolkota,but if U are stationed at Delhi,then yes,U can do it anytime from Delhi,whenever U wish.

Enjoy your HP Trip.

Dear Bhandari,
Thank you for your advice, I think it will be better to drop Amritsar in this trip and Delhi-Chandigarh-Kalka-Simla-Manali-Chandigarh-Delhi will be the most convinient route. Thanks again for your valued opinion.

Hi Goutom:Geographically Simla & Amritsar from C'garh are opposite direction.Considering this logistics,the most ligical route would be;
1. Delhi-C'garh: By Satabdi Exp[Delhi Dept.7AM>
2. C'garh-Amritsar[via Ludhiana,Jalandhar>on NH95 &
NH1 & Amritsar-C'garh-Kalka by hired car is best.
This total distance is 510Kms
3. Kalka- Simla:: Narrow gauge train
4. Simla-Manali & Manali- C'garh : By hired car or
HPTDC luxury AC Buses.
5. C'garh- Delhi: Satabdi[ C'garh Dept.7AM>

This covers up Ur intended visit places & toy train ride too. Hope you like this recommendation.Have a nice winter trip to HP & Amritsar.
