If we hire a car and driver to take us to Shimla from Delhi, is it possible to break the journey and stay overnight somewhere on route?
Yes you can but cab cost will be calculated accordingly.
Thank you will look into that as I have looked at buses and they all go overnight, we would prefer to see some of the scenery but it is a long trip during the day, best if we break it up.
HRTC Volvo operates during day too.
My preferred route : sleeper train Delhi-Kalka, quick chai before the toy train starts , arrive for lunch. Car from Kalka is faster , and less fun. The scenery before Kalka is easly missable , to be diplomatic.Edited: 05 August 2018, 08:31

# 6 : Not my way. The sleeper train from Delhi ( tenish ) arrives in time for morning chai & switching to the toy train in Kalka.
