How to reach
Mandi is a small town in Himachal Pradesh. It is at the center of Himachal pradesh. Most of the people come to Mandi through Delhi or Chandigarh. There are two options for reaching Mandi.
After landing in Delhi, go to ISBT (interstate bus terminus), Kashmiri gate. In ISBT, buses to Mandi will
be available on platform 6-8. You can catch the buses going to Manali or Mandi. The distance between
Delhi and Mandi is ~475 km. This distance can be covered in approximately 12 hrs (it depends on traffic
on the roads and other conditions) by bus. If somebody plans to come by car/jeep or other personal
vehicle, the journey time may be less than 12 hrs. There are different varieties of bus facilities from
Delhi – ordinary, deluxe and AC buses. For details, one can visit hrtc.gov.in (this is website of himachal
road transport corporation). Other state buses and private buses are also available to Mandi.
The alternative to reach Mandi from Delhi is to travel by train up to Kiratpur Sahib by Delhi-Unahimachal
express (4553). From Kiratpur, there is no option other than traveling by road. The bus frequency
from Kiratpur may be good, but the details are not known to us. All the buses going from Delhi and
Chandigarh to Mandi have to pass through Kiratpur.
From Chandigarh also, one can get buses to Mandi and Manali. The frequency from Chandigarh may be
good because buses from Delhi pass through Chandigarh and some buses start from Chandigarh itself.
The other choice from Chandigarh to Mandi is to travel by taxi. The distance between Chandigarh and
Mandi is 200 kms. This distance can be covered in approximately 6 hrs by bus. By taxi, it takes around 5
The nearest airport to Mandi is the Kullu Airport at Bhuntar, at a distance of about 75 km from Mandi
town. This small domestic airport cannot house large aircrafts and consequently only small aircrafts fly
to Kullu. Flights to Kullu are restricted only from Delhi, and Shimla. There are no international Flights
to Kullu or from other major cities of the country. Anyone interested in coming to Mandi by air needs
to first take a flight to Delhi. Delhi is well connected to different parts of the country as well as the
important cities of the world. From Delhi, the travelers need to take any of the connecting Flights to
Kullu which is a journey of about 90 minutes. Two of the airways operating Flights to Kullu are Indian
Airlines and Kingfisher Airlines. The latter has more frequent Flights toKullu. In fact, Kingfisher Airlines
operates daily Flights to Kullu. Flights to Kullu are prone to getting delayed or cancelled in the monsoons
on account of bad weather conditions.
