Book a direct bus from Delhi to Manali. I booked a Northern Travels bus which cost me around Rs 1200. After passing kullu, there comes a Ramshila flyover, from there two roads are going to Manali.

If the bus goes via biasar route, then get down at patlikula from there one can easy get a cab to naggar.

If the bus goes via kais then one can directly drop at naggar town directly.
