Hi everyone,
I plan to go from Haridwar to Uttarkashi in march 2012 and looking for an easy and confortable way to get there (since I am traveling with an older person).
Is it possible to rent a car with driver from Haridwar (just one way, since i will stay for 3 days in uttarkashi..and then try find another car to come back to haridwar)?
How long does it take this journey (around 140km)?
How much would be a fare fee?
Other possibilities are going by bus, would you recommend?

Thanks and stay in peace!

Hi, the best way is to get to rishikesh and get a share jeep to uttarkashi around 200 rupees.To get to rishikesh fromHaridwar you can get a train ,bus or taxi. I normaly take the bus(23 rupees) as it takes about the same time as a taxi but is 500 rupees cheaper.It is also only 5 minutes walk from the train station that is if you arrive in Haridwar by train. All the best, Captain kKiy.

Hi, again. it will take 5to6 hours to reach Uttarkashi maybe longer, it depends on the state of the road. During monsoon and afterwards there are often landslides, though it should be fine around the time you wish to go. I forgot to mention that the share taxis leave Rishikesh early in the morning around 6 or 7 a.m. so unless you stay in Rishikesh the night before you will have to get up really early in haridwar to get there on time. Of course you can get a whole taxi at any time. Yours Captain Kit.

Hi!
I finally decided to go by car from Hardwar, since older people from the family came together.

A small Tata Indica (most popular and cheap in travel agencies), with driver, got around 2000 - 2500 rupees (one way).

I came back alone from Uttarkashi by bus to Hardwar, and had to get up early to get a 5:00..5:30a.m. bus (it may change, so better be early).

Since I didnt' look for the bus/jeep for the way Rishikesh-Uttarkashi, I don't know about the times. But much probably they are like Captain Kit had said in the previous post.

Peace!

Sorry to bump an old thread but from what hsaad said, there seems to be direct bus available from Haridwar to Uttarkashi. So if anyone knows the timing, please share with me. I would prefer a direct bus anyday than break at Rishikesh.

As far as my personal experience goes, whether buses run on such a route depends on the season. During the low volume tourist season, shared taxis, or several short bus trips might be the only option. IN Nov., for example, Badrinnath/Joshimath to Hardwar/Rishikesh buses don't run from end to end. They serve local traffic in low season. Rishikesh to Devaprayag. Look for enroute cities such as Narendra Nagar, Chamba, etc.

If you need a car, for the trip, I could possibly help you.

Thanks. Good to know that. I had to bus hop from Badrinath to Rishikesh in Nov. Badrinath to karna prayag, to Chamoli, and then Rishikesh. Every bus conductor Todd me it was going all thev way to Hardwar. But Rishikesh was as far I could go. Then I hoped on a night bus to Delhi, my destination.

Btw, it was the last day before winter closing. Om my way up to Badrinath from Joshimath, a.shared taxi was the only option.

I am planning a trip to Uttarkashi this month and hope to reach Haridwar by train reaching at 3:50am or 5:45am. Would like to take an earliest transport option to Uttarkashi, either by shared taxi or bus, whichever is faster. Can somebody give some input on this?

Thanks

Either of, or both, GMOU and TGMOC may have a bus from Haridwar to Uttarkashi. You can call them and check. Their stands are near the RS (ask for directions when you get there).
Tel. nos.:
GMOU - 01334-226886/719
TGMOC - 01334-265008 / 9412053641

UTC (roadways) may also have a bus. Check on tel. nos. 01334-227037 / 8476007537.

There may also be direct jeeps, but I'm not sure.

Other than that, you'll get transport from Rishikesh (Natraj Chauk).
