Go for the dierct train from Jaipur to Chandigarh
Its time Vs comfort,

If you take the train(there's one from Jaipur to Chandigarh overnight), you will reach chandigarh in the morning but from there you need to take an ordinary bus to reach Kullu(again tiring, will waste a day). Volvo's ply at night only, wait till late evening to catch one, again wasting the day and night from chandigarh.

If you reach delhi during the day and then reach Kullu by taking an overnight volvo, you spend lesser time travelling but comfort is compromised.

Take your pick.

Yes thats what I was thinking, at least one good night rest in the train. Now I have asked someone to find me details of buses leaving from Chandigarh to Manali. I am hoping that there is a day Volvo bus so that I can reach Kullu/ Manali by night and again rest.

I thought of that. But the train still appeals me as it starts jaipur at 2000hrs so atleast I will have full day of 4th May with me. If I take a bus from Jaipur to Delhi on the 5th of May I would have start start by 1000hrs to reach Delhi to take the 1700hrs Volvo to manali.

Starting at 10 am on the 5th or starting at 8 pm on the 4th I think doesnt save me a day. (apart from getting my own bed to sleep for a night)

But neverthless thanks for suggesting.

Thank you all for all your inputs. The plan stands like this.

1. Leave Jaipur today 4/05/10 by overnight train to Chandigarh. Arrive chandigarh at 0700 hrs.
2. take a/c bus at 0840 hrs on 05/05/10 and reach Kullu by evening. If I miss this bus or if seats not available take any bus to Kullu
3. 06/05/10 to 16/05/10 trekking
4. Take the ac volvo on 16/05/10 (tickets done on internet) to delhi and reach delhi on 17/05/10 by morning. Take the next bus to Jaipur.

Regards
Dhiraj
