"Long road to Dharamshala (scenic but tiring)"

6/7

Travelled as: Group

We were a group of 7 people and were planning to go to a hill station for nice scenic trek. After a lot of research and googling we zeroed in on this destination. Had read some really good reviews/experiences. We started on 1st October so that we get the 2nd oct off and the long weekend. Started early from Delhi to beat the traffic. The route was nice and beautiful, most of it highway and well maintained roads. Lots of dhabas and hotels on the way for food. On your way to Dharamshala, you will find Jwala devi shrine and Anand sahib Gurudwara which are must visit place, no matter what sect or religion you belong to. One tip, take breaks while on your way otherwise it becomes tiring and your back may become stiff. Gorge on the delicious road side dhabas and enjoy the lassis and ch ...Read More

"Travel experience by car"

We started at 7 am as it’s going to take about 10-12 hours by road. In fact starting at 6 am is the best opinion according to me. Car was expectedly clean since it was hired by MakeMyTrip. Driver looked experienced but he was feeling sleepy in the morning and looked unwell and was sometime looking to drive off the road. During conversation we came to know that he was also from Himachal and living somewhere close to Dharmashala. We reached in the evening at around 7 pm. The car meter clocked about 515 kilometres. On day two- The driver told us to visit the DL Temple and explore the Mcleodganj Market and would take us for the site seeing on Day 3. On Day three- We found that car had run about 90 kilometres on day two. Then we understood that driver had taken the car to his home ...Read More

"Road is in very good condition providing a comfortable drive"

The best time to start is early morning. We started from Dwarka at 5:30 Am and within 30 mins hit the GT Road, 3 hrs to Ambala. The best route to take is Kharar-Banur rd then to Nangal. The State Highway is in very good condition providing a comfortable drive. Nangal to Anandpur Sahib and on thru Kangra to Dharamshala. Total driving time with two breaks in between is 8 hrs approx. Plenty of Dhabas and Resorts on the way, so one can choose according to his budget.

"Travel by our own car was cost effective"

The experience was good travelling by our own car. It was my personal car, a diesel swift. We were three friends and we did not realize the tiredness. We were very much comfortable in our own car. As travelling by own car helps us to stop anywhere and go anywhere as per our own choice. The car resulted as a comfortable and spacious means of transport for three of us. And it was cost effective too.

The journey was safe and sound. Other facilities were also good. It took 10 hours to reach Dhramshala from Delhi. There were few stoppage during the journey, and the halting restaurants were good and economical. There was good arrangement for entertainment in the bus as they played a Bollywood movie. They have provided us the bottle water.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
