Early morning glmpse of the Dhauladar range is exotic. Reached Pathankot at early morning via Jammu Mail which leaves old Delhi station at 8 PM. The train kept to its review of being quite punctual. Its one of the many trains to Punjab, via Pathankot which you can avail.

It took us two minutes to decide whether we wanted to take a bus or be part of the historical heritage train journey (longest in India) to Kangra. The train whistled! we quickly bought tickets and took seats (there are no fixed seats. So be quick).

The ride was absolutely gorgeous. View of the Kangra valley through the wooden tran windows is breathtaking. The train travels through 17 tunnels and mountain ridges. Its a small narrow gauge train, so travels slow, letting you inhale the fresh himalayan air and stops at every station briefly.

Its a passenger train, so is crowded. If you like observing people and love making friends, an experience to remember. If you are crowd conscious and getting late, you might want to take the bus which takes 2 hours to Dharamsala. But know you will miss the wonders of Dhauladar. The train also has two toilets (Not very clean)
in every coach for your convenience.

We reached Kangra in about 4 hours. thrilled with the train journey we took the bus down to Dharamsala and then to Mcleodgunj. It was exciting to be part of the Indian rail heritage. Look forward to the same again soon.

I was exited to reach there I just went to the bus stop and I saw HP bus transport and took the tickets and then got my seat. I was glad at the beginning as it was great and slowly the the bus starts getting crowded. The bus was smelling badly but when it started then every thing was ok and I saw beautiful scenes of nature and at last in three and half hour we reached to the McLeodganjrn
