I booked a cab from owner Ram Sewak Singh, who is very friendly and soft spoken person. Whole tour was from Amritsar- Dalhousie- Khajiar- Amritsar was very comfortable. Day-1 Left Amritsar by 10:00 am onwards to Dalhousie. We had Lunch at Mamas Restaurant (Good facility for refreshment and wash-rooms). We reached Dalhousie by 5:00 pm. We visited local Mall road on the first day. Day-2 We left for Khajjiar by 10:00 am and returned from Khajjiar by 2:00 pm. We stopped by Kala top by 2:30 pm and left for Amritsar by 5:30 pm and reached Amritsar by 10:00 pm. Must visit : Kala Top. Advice to the traveller: Do not book hotels without validating the facility, since I booked Hotel Goher and it was the worst experience I ever had. ...Read More

I travel to Dalhousie from Amritsar by my own car twice a month. Because my two kids study at Dalhousie Public School. That's why I travel regularly on this route. Amritsar to Pathankot road is very good but after Pathankot to Dalhousie road is very damaged road. Dunera is centre of this route but very traffic in this town so every time traffic jam & waste too much time.

The journey was very comfortable and surrounding was very beautiful. The mountains in the routes were looking beautiful. It was my best journey ever. The food of dhabas were very healthy and tasty. I want to eat it again. The best time to start a journey is morning and evening.

We travelled from Amritsar to Dalhousie. Journey was good, lots of scenic beauty, although the condition of the roads needs to improve. We went via Phatankot, it took us almost 6 hours to reach Dalhousie. On the way, we stopped for lunch at a dhaba Punjab ka Dhaba and dal makhani which was excellent.




"Good adventurous trip"

We had booked with Sandhu Travels, and Mr Varandeep Singh the manager provided us with a A/C coach bus for this trip. The drivers and the tour operator was very cooperative in spite of the fact that our group did put forward quite a lot of demands! The road till Pathankot is good. After which the ghat road to Dalhousie is just ok. Unfortunately the bus broke down 2 hours before Dalhousie. The tour operator, talked to the local Dalhousie operator for another bus. But this took time, but we took it along, all through this struggle one should appreciate the tour operator who was cooperative.
