Manchester Chandigarh

Chandigarh is a major city in the north of India and is the capital of the Indian states, Punjab and Haryana. The Chandigarh airport serves only domestic flights, so flying there directly is not yet an option. However, there are countless indirect flights from Manchester to Chandigarh. The journey takes around 20 hours, factoring in the waiting time for connecting flights. However, depending on the airlines you pick, this time may vary. A quick online search will give you a cheap flight that arrives at a convenient time. The stopovers are at major cities like Frankfurt, Doha, Brussels and Delhi, so don't be alarmed if your connecting flight requires a long wait- the airports in these cities are modern and luxurious so you'll find enough to keep you entertained.When your Manchester-Chandigarh flight lands, head to the car booking counters at the arrivals terminal. For a more local experience, travel by Volvo busses, or even three-wheeler auto-rickshaws, but only if you don't have much luggage.

Sightseeing Chandigarh 1 Rock Garden

2 Sukhna Lake

Treat your soul with a bit of restful meditation at the Sukhna Lake. This man-made reservoir is cool and peaceful - perfect for a picnic with your family or to meet some of the locals who come here daily. Those craving a little action can go sailing or water skiing.

3 Forest Trek from Nepli

For some close contact with nature, go trekking from Nepli to Kansal reserve forest. Surrounded by hills and dense jungles full of deer, jackals and antelopes, this is 'wild fun' of a different kind.

4 Zakir Hussain Rose Garden

Let the romantic in you go crazy at the famous Zakir Hussain Rose Garden. With over 1600 different species of roses, this garden is not to be missed. Those lucky enough to be visiting during the month of March will be able to attend the annual Festival of Gardens.

5 Feast on Paratha and Butter Chicken

A trip here is incomplete without feasting on north Indian delights like paratha (fried flatbreads), daal makhni (mixed lentils seasoned with onions, tomatoes and garlic), butter chicken, and the seasonal delicacy- Sarson da Saag and Makki di Roti (flat corn bread served with a dish made of mustard leaves). Butter and cream give these dishes their authentic flavour, so you'll definitely need to put your diet on hold to enjoy them.

Required travel documents for India

To visit Chandigarh you need a valid passport and an Indian tourist visa. The visa must be obtained before you start your journey. A regular tourist visa is generally valid for six months. Nationals from select few countries like Cambodia, New Zealand and Japan have the option of the 'Visa on Arrival' facility, valid for one month. However, if you're a British passport holder, you will need to apply for a visa online, prior to your journey.
Though a buzzing modern city, Chandigarh is extremely well planned, and has a lot of gardens, parks and natural attractions.
