Ways To Reach: Modes Of Transportation
You can reach Manali by plane, train or simply taking a road trip and driving up there. Manali is not directly connected to any airport or railway station, however you can reach there by traveling to neighboring airports and railway stations and then taking a bus/taxi for the rest of the journey.
Although the nearest airport to Manali is in Bhuntar, we wouldn’t recommend it as there is only one flight in a week from Delhi. The unreliable weather conditions also make it a difficult option to travel. A convenient way to arrive here is to reach Delhi via flight and then take a bus/taxi to Manali. But if you decide to come via Bhuntar, you may take a private taxi from the airport.
The nearest railway station is Jogindernagar, 146 km away from Manali, but there aren’t a lot of regular trains from there so we recommend coming via train till Ambala Cantt which is 200 km away from Manali and covering the last leg of journey via bus or taxi.
You may also take a private taxi to reach here.
