How To Reach Himachal Pradesh

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

There are three domestic airports that connect Himachal Pradesh to the rest of the country. These are located at Kullu-Manali, Dharamshala and Shimla. The airports have flights from Himachal Pradesh to Delhi and Chandigarh. You can conveniently travel via air and get down at the airport closest to the cities you wish to visit.

By Train

The kind of rocky terrain that Himachal Pradesh is located on, makes it slightly inconvenient to construct railway tracks. However, with best efforts, a train does run into the state from Pathankot in Punjab. Travelers can drive up to Punjab or take a flight and then take a train to Himachal Pradesh. By train, it takes only about seven and a half hours long. People usually take overnight trains to Himachal so that they reach feeling refreshed. The important railway stations in Himachal are Solan and Una. There is also a toy train available that connects Himachal to Kalka. Opting for a train proves to be great option as they are usually affordable, comfortable, well maintained and a lot more fun than a flight journey.

By Road

The advantage of states situated in the hills is that you can plan a comfortable road trip. The distance from Delhi to Himachal Pradesh by road can be covered in just about 7 hours or maximum 7 and a half hours. The roads are very well maintained and even during the monsoon season, it is safe to drive up to the state, just needs a little caution. Himachal Pradesh is very well connected to the major cities. To reach Himachal by road, you can hire cabs or even take a bus. A bus journey is usually affordable and comfortable too, as the buses stop from time to time and allow people to try out the hill roadside chai and some local delicacies.

    Naveena Peraka

    Vijayawada

    Naveena's 3 days trip to Himachal

    Better not to book with this travel agency. Travel agent Dheeraj was only helpful with the travel plan and bookings. But when we needed help, he turned his back on us. Travel agency did not take much care in booking the right drive at all. Driver was not at all aware of our itinerary or cared to listen to us. And when he was asked to pick us up at a point, he straight away rejected though the distance he has to travel back was just 3kms. We explained this situation to Dheeraj for help, but was useless. Funny part is the driver dropped us in that location few hours back and it was so hard to explain this to the driver or Dheeraj. Even locals tried to help us explain this to the driver, but stopped after hearing driver's rant. At a point, we were stuck on the road in cold weather and helpless as we can't explain to driver and Dheeraj was rude. He doesn't know how to deliver client's feedback to the driver at all. Driver argued with us for 30mins after picking up and didn't respect us at all for the feedback. On the last day, we tried to give 200rs for the driver as he had to travel back 3 times to pick us up the other day and for the fuel he had to use. He didn't accept the money saying he need minimum 500rs or doesn't need at all. Then also he was rude and didn't behave well. Finally our trip was a disaster because of this agency's planning and execution. Only good thing was the hotel and it's food and staff.
