      I plan to go from Chandigarh to Shimla and Amritsar and back to Chandigarh. Can you suggest a travel route? Order does not matter, but travel time is to be minimum! Couldn't find flights to Shimla, SLV from Chandigarh or Amritsar.

      Hello there,
      I need some help. I'm going to India 1st or 2nd week of Dec. I'm flying from Kuala Lumpur to Delhi. Plan to take a local sightseeing tour in Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Then, I would like to go to Shimla. My questions are :
      1. Since I'm a budget traveller, I'm taking the cheaper bus - ISBT, not the luxury HRTC. Is this the bus that referred as always crowded and never on time ? Hope not. Do you know how much is the fare from Delhi to Shimla, and also the bus timetable ? How long is the journey ?
      2. I'm thinking of getting to Shimla by bus and back to Delhi by train, to get more taste on India transportation. How do I get the train (toytrain?), how much is the fare and do you know the timetable ?
      3. I want to go skiing at Kufri, for the 1st time in my life. Will it already snowing at the time I arrived there ? Where can I rent ski equipments and any idea of the rate ?
      4. I understand that I can take a bus up to Kufri from Shimla. How frequent is this bus ?
      5. Which is the nearest backpacker hostel to Shimla bus station ?
      I'm sorry if I asked too many questions, and most on expenses, because I travel on a shoestring budget. Hee...hee...Thanks.
