Chandigarh to mannali is 320 kms. by innova i would take around 9-10 hours depending when you start from chandigarh and no. of stoppages on the way. The earlier you start the lesser time it takes.
The best route is:
Chandigarh--- ropar--- kiratpur---swarghta---bilaspur---sundernagar---manidi---raison---kullu---manali
Manali to chail: manali-kullu-mandi-shimla-chail: around 7 hoursReport Abuse
Chandigarh-Chail-Kulu-Manali by Innova/Tovera;
Chandigarh-Parwanoo-Barog-Kandaghat(NH 22)=85Kms (A)
Kandaghat-Chail (Other Normal Road) = 29Kms (B)
Chail-Kufri-Tattapani-Chindi-Nerchawk-Mandi = 213 Kms* (C)
* Normal Road
Mandi-Panhoh-Aut-Kulu-Manali (NH 21) = 69 Kms (D)
U can cover Chandigarh - Chail (114 Kms) first. I am sure U will make a night halt here, I don't think U will NOT just touch Chail & drive further. If U make a halt here then
Ur first leg journey is 114 Kms & on Second leg U can cover Chail-Kulu-Manali =282 Kms ( By Innova it should take about 8 hrs, provided roads are clear).
I had taken a Tavera for 4 of us and followed same route during mid Sept'10 & we had lovely experience.
Have a nice trip to Himachal.
