Default Delhi to Kasauli (Himachal) road condition

I am planning to drive upto Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh this long weekend (Friday is off for me).

I would like to get some feedback on the road conditions considering the kind of monsoon we have seen this time in the north.

The route I am planning to take would be NH1 till Ambala, then NH22 via Chandigarh and finally Parwanoo till Kasauli.

Any feedback on the road conditions, stopover ideas and places to stay in Kasauli would be greatly appreciated.

Upto Parwanoo, road condition is fine except for the heavy traffic and bottlenecks caused by road widening till Ambala. I have no idea about the road after Parwanoo.

The roads usually fine. No real issues ever unless something major happens. It can take anything from 5hrs to 8hrs depending upon you luck and stoppages. Nice places to stay are kasauli resort if you like conventional places. The hptdc ros common is nice but my fav is hotel alicia near the church.

Enroute nice places to stop are sukhdev dhaba,murthal for yummy paranthas. Dharampur has giani da dhaba and colonel's kebabs both with their benefits and shortcomings.

Road is good enough,and look up on google and you will find enough hotels.
Book in advance,as you may have a tough time in locating a decent place for stay at this time of the year.

I searched in google but many of the hotels coming up are not actually in Kasauli, but atleast 5-10 KM away, so was looking for first hand experience. Anyway thanks.

Try this link. I went to Kasauli in April 2010 and made my bookings through this company.

Hotels and Resorts in Himachal, Hotels Resorts Palaces in Shimla, Manali, Chail Himachal Pradesh,Hotels in Himachal Pradesh,Hotel in Himachal Pradesh,Hotels of Himachal Pradesh,India Himachal Pradesh Hotels,Himachal Pradesh Hotel,Himachal Pradesh Hot

Apart from Ros Common, you could look at Hotel Alasia, Kasauli Regency, Kasauli Woods or Baikunth Resorts. I stayed at Homestead Cottage which was a beautiful experience. Look it up under cottages in Kasauli link on the same page.

Some of the hotels like Hill's Pride and Shivalik among others are not located in Kasauli.

Here's a 2016 Update.
Delhi to the end of the Himalayan Eway is fantastic. No roadworks, no hiccups, and smooth traffic even with higher volumes. After the Eway ends though, the roads are pathetic and there is a lot of work going on. However, that is only for about an hour.
Go trip.
