Hello Friends,

I am planning a trip to Shimla from New Delhi (West) roughly between 10 Jan to 18 Jan 2016. I will be driving bike Pulsar 150. I am not new to hill driving as I drove once in Ooty . I will be going with my friend. Please guide me about the following points:

1) Distance
2) Route
3) How safe is route for night driving
4) Safety as I hope there will be snow on roads.
5) How much time to reach over there with 1 or 2 stops, if I start at 6 AM

Please do let me know what to take as respect to bike repairs/maintenance. Please If Iam missing something please add.

Thanks in Advance.

1) Distance
350-400 km

2) Route

Delhi - Ambala - Under Zeerakpur Flyover to turn right towards Kalka Expressway - Shimla.


3) How safe is route for night driving

Safe.
But better drive in morning in hills.

4) Safety as I hope there will be snow on roads.

Chances are there as it is going to start snowing on Monday till nature wants.


5) How much time to reach over there with 1 or 2 stops, if I start at 6 AM

7 -8 Hours.
Enjoy food at this route at some special places.
Drive slowly in Hills to enjoy views. You will reach few hours late.


Please do let me know what to take as respect to bike repairs/maintenance. Please If Iam missing something please add.

Take few tubes & Pump if you have these in stock.
Otherwise everything is available on this route in towns enroute.
