Around 5:30 am we reached the isbt kashmeere gate. Actually private buses don't go into the isbt but the point where we got off was walking distance from kashmeer gate metro station.
Some tips :-
Originating point of pvt buses from delhi is mostly Manju ka tila but it varies from operator to operator. So make sure that you know the originating point before hand.
Originating point of HRTC buses from delhi is ISBT kashmeere gate. They don't wait for anybody and are very punctual so try to reach atleast half an hour prior to the departure schedule.
Always see the weather forecast before planning. If it's snowing heavy then don't go by your own vehicles because we saw how people were suffering there who took their own vehicles. And it's best to go by buses because they are experienced drivers and you can enjoy the journey much freely.
Manali is also famous for stuff like hash . Don't get fooled by duplicate material.
Most important if any problem occurs talk to locals there , they are very friendly people and are always ready to help.
Make memories 😁.
