Dear Sumi

You have the option of travelling by the morning Shatbdi( around 8AM) which takes you to Kalka on the foothills by 12-12.30 and connect to the narrow guage mountain train which is an interesting 5 hour trip, or take a cab from there, which mya take an hour less. You can also take a flight to Chandigarh, about an hour's flying time and take a cab.

Best is to catch a Volvo from CP, New Delhi.

Takes abt 9 hrs and rates are Rs600/-, reach Shimla in 9 hrs, no headache no tension of changing trains.

Enjoy !!

<i><A HREF="http://himachal.nic.in/hrtc/route.asp">VOLVOs</A></i> are the best option. The first VOLVO leaves New Delhi Bus Station at 6.30 am. You will have to come to Kashmiri gate bus station to catch a bus for Shimla. There are quite a lot of bus stations in Delhi. You can reserve online for the VOLVOs <i><a href="http://www.hp.gov.in/hrtctickets">click here</a></i> Airport to the bus station should take a maximum 40 minutes as there will be no traffic in the morning. Better to take a pre-paid cab from the taxi booth at the airport
