Either Agra to be excluded or plan to be extended. Otherwise, the itinerary will be too tight.

Option –I

We prefer a Tempo traveller from Delhi-Shimla-Manali-Kullu (If Shimla cannot be accommodated it can be removed)

In addition we are also looking for a 1 day trip to Delhi and 1 day trip to Agra on return after above trip

We plan to arrive from bangalore to Delhi on 5th July night and return from Delhi to Bangalore on 12th July evening

Note: Please confirm weather conditions is conducive to travel during this period

Option –II

We prefer a Tempo traveller from Delhi-Corbett-Massouri-Nainital (If Massouri cannot be accommodated it can be removed)

In addition we are also looking for a 1 day trip to Delhi and 1 day trip to Agra on return after above trip

We plan to arrive from Bangalore to Delhi on 5th July night and return from Delhi to Bangalore on 12th July evening

Note: Please confirm weather conditions is conducive to travel during this period and if the Corbett National Park is opened.

Neither of the of the options are recommended in July. It would be monsoon in hills, chances of landslides are there. Corbett will be closed, Agra won't be affected by rain.

Thanks a lot Sir for your quick reply! :)

Our original plan(taken from one of the tours company) included Chandigarh as well. I forgot to mention that. Is there anything worth seeing at Chandigarh?

It was like Delhi -Chandigarh- Shimla-Kullu-Manali-Chandigarh-Delhi.

We want to see if Delhi and Agra can be covered easily.

Thanks!

You can come to Kalka via Chandigarh, but it would not worth. There is nothing much to see in Chandigarh except the city itself and Pinjore garden etc. Rather, Agra is more wise inclusion.

Hello Sir,

I wanted to know if Train No. 52453 , Kalka Simla express starting from Kalka at 6 am is as good as train no 52451 , Shivalik Dlx exp.? I wanted to book shivalik dlx on 18th May 2012, but its not available. (WL52) :-( Is there any chance that it will get confirmed till 18th?

While 52453 i.e. Kalka Simla exp. maybe available. It is giving error for this date for availability of this train. Does it open just a month before, because I cud see status of 24 April only today? So, I am guessing.

Please suggest a good train as we are planning to reach kalka from dehli by 12311(HWH DLI KLK MAI) at 4.30 am on that day itself.

Thanks a lot,

MGH

These are popular trains from Kalka – Simla :

52451 Shivalik Dlx Exp KLK 05.30 SML 10.15

52453 Kalka Simla Exp KLK 06.00 SML 11.05

52455 Himalayan Queen KLK 12.10 SML 17.20

72451 Rail Motor KLK 05.10 SML 09.50

There is no hope of confirmation of WL52 in Shivalik Dlx Exp.

Oh ok. Shivalik dlx exp status is WL36 actually. Still no hope right?

And I confirmed with irctc customer care that booking for 52453 i.e. kalka simla at 6 am open only before 31 days. So, it is not showing status right now.

I have booked delhi- kalka (12311) ticket. Just hoping to get confirmed ticket for kalka simla exp. 52453 next month.

Thank you,

MGH
