These semi deluxe buses are infact ordinary buses having a seating combination of 3x2. The Gurgaon Baijnath bus leaves Delhi around 9 pm and is a good bus. No proper Deluxe buses are available on this route. This bus is quite comfortable. Also there is an ordinary Haryana Roadways bus available on this route. Else you can take a VOLVO to Dharamshala and then take an ordinary bus to Baijnath. This will be a longer journey as by the time you reach Dharamshala, you will be at Baijnath if you take the direct bus
Three goodies for Indian roads-
Good horn, Good brake, Good luck!

Ordinary buses cannot be booked on the internet. HRTC has a booking counter at ISBT at Kashmiri Gate on the first floor where these buses can be booked. Also HRTC operates another booking counter at Himachal Bhawan at Sikandra Road, New Delhi. This place is opposite to Mandi House and can be reached by the Metro, stoppage being Mandi House. Tel. no. of Himachal Bhawan is 23716124, 23716125. The HRTC bus from Gurgaon leaves at 6 pm and Haryana state bus leaves at 4.30 pm and 6.30 pm. (HRTC is Himachal Roadways). From Gurgaon these buses come to ISBT Kashmiri gate. This place is bout 40 minutes in rush hour traffic from New Delhi railway station.

The best option would be to take Metro from ND railway station to Kashmiri gate. Ask anyone about metro station and when u step outside of kashmeri gate ask the gaurd in station about the ISBT gate number.. You will find yourself at the ISBT terminal. Metro is the best way to travel to Kashmiri gate. They have luggage restrictions though in the metro.

The HRTC semi deluxe is 2x2 with push back seats. Another bus from Kashmiri gate to Baijnath is Haryana roadways - a better bus as HRTC have taken a oridnary bus & put new seats, but there's no dicky for your large bag. you can't carry it on the metro either. you could leave your luggage at the railway station, catch the metro out to ISBT, make your booking, then go by auto with your bag to catch the bus in the evening. If you catch a Dharamsala bus get down in Kangra & catch a bus or taxi from there.
