Answers to travel information on
Dalhousie in Himachal Pradesh
You will have more options at Pathankot. Travel by own vehicle or taxi should be prefered if one can afford it. I prefer to travel by own vehicle, you can stop where ever & whenever you like. This way you can enjoy the journey as well as destination.
From Pathankot Bus Stand, several buses go to Dalhousie. Punjab government buses are more in number that Himachal buses. All buses are usually always over crowded ( u need to travel into one to experience the definition of over-crowded ).
Buses take almost 3 hours to 3.30 hrs and whatever be the time a bus halts at Dunera for some time. Various small eating places and kiosk selling sundry items, but I enjoy local dishes here, particularly Dal Fry and roti. Aampapad are good ( 2 varieties).
If u dont like crowds, hire a private vehicle. Usual charges should be about 1500 or so ( depending on time and weather).
No other mode of transport available here. A suggestion: if u r with female company and/or going for first time, do hire a vehicle. The travel is equally enchanting as the destination.
Wish u happy moments there.Report Abuse
If you go during seasons, you may get a cab from Chakki Bank station itself. Otherwise go to Pathankot busstand by taking an Autorickshaw(Rs.50 approx), from where you will have a lot of options. Busses are avilable or you can hire all sorts of vehicle from there.Try to contact the driver/owner of the cab/vehicle directly,do not contact any tour operator. You can save handsome amount.Report Abuse
I am not sure if I could answer your query. I had taken my own vehicle for the trip. You need to check within your local area or internet for the same
Hi, I don't think, you'll get transport from Chakki Bank, unless you have already booked a cab. Pathankot has more options, moreover you'll find buses from Pathankot. You may take a shared auto-rickshaw from outside Chakki Bank station to Pathankot (10-15 minutes ride) bus stand, from where you may enquire about the bus or taxi to Dalhousie.Report Abuse
