We took our own car and the route is fine and it is not that tiring. We started in the morning and reached there by evening. There are hotels and dhabas along the way. The route is same for palampur and dharamshala as they are nearby you can visit Dharamshala also and there are various temples along the way like kangra devi, you can also visit the kangra fort.

I will prefer himachal road transport corporation buses because the staff is very cooperative and they are very punctual. The seats of the buses was great. The roads are very good in palampur. I advice all the travellers to travel there in HRTC buses.
