Hello everyone. I'm an American living in India for a bit over 3 months. Currently I'm working with an NGO in a village about an hour and a half north west of New Delhi. I'll be here for a few more weeks and then plan to head north to Daramsala. I want to take a bus, but I really don't think I can get into the city ahead of time to buy a ticket. Can I book a ticket online? As far as I can tell, I can't. If I wait until a couple of days before I leave (early June) will there still be tickets left?
My other question is about the train. I'm really happy I can just book e-tickets, but I can't figure out the code for Shimla. The one listed in Trains at a Glance is not on the website. The website lists something very similar (SHIMILIAGUDA(SMLG) instead of SHIMLA (SML) like in the book) but I don't want to book a ticket to the wrong place!
Thanks for any help. I'm loving India (minus the heat!) and already am planning my next trip here.
