There are share jeeps available to all the above. Possible delays due to landslides on gangotri route, depends on the severity of monsoon.Fairly sure there are buses too, might have to change sometimes, for instance mussorie to gangotri may require a change at uttarkashi.

By public transport you may need following breaks:

Mussoure to Uttarkashi by bus/sh.jeep
Uttarkashi to Gangotri by bus/sh.jeep
Gangotri to Harshil by bus
Harshil to Uttarkashi by bus
Though it is October it is better to book advance from Gangotri otherwise you may not get seat from Harshil.

For Jakholi you can catch sh.jeep to Srinagar from Uttarkashi. The break will be as follows.
Srinagar to Tilwara by bus
Tilwara to Mayali by bus
Mayali to Jakholi by reserved car (8 km)
There is bus from Dehradun to Jakholi via Srinagar, Rudrapryag, Tilwara in the morning.

If you want to go via New Tehri ,Chirbatiya khal.....
Harshil to Chamba by bus
Chamba to New Tehri by sh.jeep (11 km)
New Tehri to Ghansali by bus ( left hand seat for view )
Ghansali to Mayali by bus ( right hand seat for snow peak view)
Mayali to Jakholi by reserved car

Jakholi to Rudrapryag by bus
Rudrapryag to Pipolkoti by bus

Lot of break. So travel light.
Bus is preferred for view but sh. Jeep is better for handling luggage.

Dear Sir ,
thanks for your detailed and in depth reply.
Feel that it will be not very easy to cover the entire tour depending upon local transport/share cab
Still I am finalizing the tour plan for your consideration and betterment keeping in mind the availability of buses/share cab from point to point in the following way. I have some doubt .would be a great help if you can gather specific/current information and let me know.Take your time and we have no hurry.

12th &13th October Gangotri(depending upon direct non stop bus operated by Baba Biswanath via Suakholi/Thatyur/Pantwari/uttarkashi route on 12th morning.Need more information on advance booking and timing)

14th&15th October-Harsil(by bus from gangotri on 14th )

16th October-Uttarkashi (by bus from harsil)

17th October -I have a doubt on getting public transport to Jakholi via Chauringhikhal Ganshali Mayali.Alternatively we can stay at New Tehri on 17th to avail buses/share cab towards Ganshali/Chirbhatiya /mayali to reach Jakholi

18th&19th October-Jhakoli(considered one buffer day)

20th&21st October-Pipolkoti ( via rudraprayag by bus or share cab)two night stays at pipolkoti to Auli and temples of Joshimath-better staying option than joshimath also.

22nd October-Khirsu if possible via rudraprayag/ Khankara or will stay at Rudraprayag

23rd October -Hrisikesh via pauri or directly from Rudraprayag.

our return train ticket will be from Haridwar on 25th October night at about 11.30 p.m

please do not hesitate to comment on the tour plan as above .is it very hectic?please try to make it better and more scenic if you can, considering the fact that we have to depend on public transport to cover the entire trip.
I agree that there are too many breaks in this tour plan but hiring a cab for the entire tour would be costly for us .please suggest some ideas even if revision is required in this tour plan.





regards

Mussoorie to Uttarkashi
By UTC - There's a direct bus that comes from Dehradun and departs from Picture Palace at 6.45 am. Thing is, if this bus fills up at Dehradun itself, it bypasses Mussoorie.
By TGMOC - There are 3 buses a day from Dehradun to Uttarkashi. Read this on how to catch one at Mussoorie:
Uttarakhand bus time table
By share-jeep - They leave from Landour Community Hospital. Faster than the buses but packed tight and jolly uncomfortable. I'll prefer a bus any day, specially on this particular road with many twists and turns.

New Tehri to Jakholi
It'll be better to go via Ghansali, even if it requires changing a few times. If you can get something direct to Gadoliya or Ghansali, you've got it made.

I don't think you can advance book on Kashi Vishvanath express bus, which is more an ordinary bus. Shouldn't be any problem getting aboard.

Or take shared taxi. Shared taxi from UK to Gangotri, always available. Also shared taxi, bus to Ghansali, Srinagar and onwards, or connect to go further up valley.

You could stay at Joshi for Auli. Wouldn't worry too much, season winding down and rides, accommodation should be straightforward enough.

Your plan is ok, but diverting to Khirsu for just one night is not really worth it.

1) The buses are upto Uttarkashi, as mentioned. Advance booking is possible ex Dehradun an hour or so before departure. No advance booking possible ex Mussoorie.
It will take 8-9 hours to get from Mussoorie to Gangotri.

3) Quite nice, I stayed there once. From Jakholi, you would have to reach Tilwara. From there, any transport that'll take you to Ukhimath. From there, bus or share-jeep to Dugalbitta. Transport on this last sector is scarce, so you might have to hire a full jeep.

4) Joshimath or Auli.

Well you should be able to go straight through to Gangotri on the bus from Mussoorie, reaching before 3pm hopefully, take snacks and water obviously.

Considering it terminates at Uttarkashi, that'd be an achievement.



P.S. Long time no see.

The itinerary is OK. That is all I can say.

You don't need to follow the plan rigidity. As it is end of season no need to advance booking. Only for Jakholi you can call them (online booking available only in 3 days advance). Dogalvitta also only one option but you can stay at baniyakund if required.

Why pipolkothi ,stay at Joshimath for Auli.
Day 16th you can skip Uttarkashi and can reach Chamba/New Tehri from Harshil.

After Dogalvita you can spend a night at Mondal.

As already posted " wouldn't worry to much". Enjoy the journey in one of the beautiful part of Garhwal.

thanks seaface for your prompt reply.
1. the only accommodation option at dogolvitta is PWd rest house,so far I know. probably they will not give accommodation without advance booking.Is there any private lodge?Do not know about Buniyakund.please narrate some details and lodging facility.
2.pipolkoti as a place is scenic and lonely than Joshimath and Auli is almost same distance by road from Pipolkoti and Joshimath.this was the reason to stay at pipolkoti instead of Joshimath.However we shall go by your advice.

regards
