Hi Ayush, First of all it depends where are you travelling from, I'm assuming you will be travelling from Delhi.
If you want to enjoy the journey i would suggest you to travel by road. There experience is wonderful, travelling through the valleys and along side Beas.
I would suggest you to travel by car or bike and if not bus would be great option. you can check for Himachal roadways buses both volvo and ordinary.
If you are looking for comfort volvo is your option and if not then ordinary buses are also good option as the cold breeze in mountains make it worth travelling.
