We never thought that it would take over five hours for travelling just 200 odd kilometres. We had hired a taxi from Distance Travels.

We started in the morning so that we could get sufficient time to roam around at Dharamshala. We did reach at a reasonable time but due to bad condition of roads, the trip became tiring.

Once we reached Dharamshala, the beauty of the place made us forget our tiredness.

We hired a cab for our trip via Pathankot taxi services. The driver was very helpful and had good knowledge about the places we visited. The route which we took had breath-taking mountains all around. We stopped at a dhaba (whose name I don't remember now) for snacks which served good food but was little costly.

Mode of Transport:Bus
The HRTC bus was average and there is a communication problem between the travellers and the bus staff. The roads are more comfortable till Nurpur and after that hilly area starts and with that bus too starts shaking or vibrating which makes it uncomfortable. I would suggest a private bus service.
