We arrived at Chandigarh ISBT bus stop around 7am in the morning. The bus stop was teeming with people and our next target was to find ourselves a place to stay. We hadn’t really planned anything for today. It was hot outside and after coming from temperatures in single digits, we weren’t looking forward to venture out in Chandigarh. After much deliberation, we decided to spend the rest of the day at ISBT bus station itself. The bus station has dormitory on the upper floors and we got ourselves a room for Rs. 600 for the day. The beds were clean and the place alright. After negotiating with the manager, we used the shower in the next room and just watched movies for the rest of the day until it was time to go to the airport. We did some quick asking around and found out that there is a bus to the airport. We paid Rs.15 per person and took the bus to the airport. The bus ride was approximately 45 mins and was hassle free. The bus drops you outside of the airport and not inside. However, you can reach the airport in less than 10 mins walking. We had reached a couple of hours before the scheduled departure of the flight and spent the rest of our time idling away on the phone waiting for our flight to depart.
This trip was one of the best trips that I have ever had. The fact that we were able to complete the trek the way it was planned originally 3 years back only brought more joy in our hearts.
