The journey from Delhi to Mashobra takes about 7-9 hours, depending on the traffic, season, and time that you leave. The journey across NH8 bypasses the cities of Panipat, Karnal, Ambala, Chandigarh, Solan, and finally Shimla.
The road from Delhi - Chandigarh is almost in the competition stage for a stoppage-free highway, with 1-2 choke points left.
The stretch from Chandigarh to Solan has two choke points at Zirakpur and Solan, but more the most part the Himalayan expressway is ready to impress you. The stretch from Solan to Shimla is under upgrade and has a few spots that might have traffic snarls.
