I was given a seat on some other bus - not a Himachal holiday tour bus. The seats were too close to each other will no leg space. The seats themselves were not very comfortable. There was no blanket or water provided. The bus started late. The driver refused to keep the ac on throughout the ride. The windows were like that of a non ac bus (they could be opened and had holes in them which let air in), this made us wonder if it was actually a non AC bus. The tyre got a puncture 2 hours into the ride in the middle of the mountains. The bus was again delayed by about an hour because of this. Also I was scared for my life. 2 stops later the empty seat next to me, a 25 year old girl was occupied by a rude middle aged man. This made me uncomfortable. There were no other empty seats so i did not want to create a scene at night. The bus stopped for dinner at 12.30 at a restaurant with unnecessarily expensive yet disgusting food. We were dropped off early in the morning and the bus conductor was not amiable or responding clearly when we asked where we were being dropped.
Terrible Terrible journey.
