Feel that two night stays at Uttarkashi is not required 12th and 16th Oct .please suggest some alternative within this tour plan.
Utc site shows one bus at 5 am from Gangotri to Haridwar. Arrival time at Haridwar 5 pm. Chamba should be reached before 2 pm. As far as I know bus goes via Chamba. New Tehri only 11 km from Chamba. So you can reach New Tehri before 3 pm instead of Uttarkashi.

Dear seaface
I agree with you .I have heard that buses and share cabs are available from uttarkashi to rudraprayag via ghansali ,tilwara route and will take roughly 07 hours.hence we have decided to stay at uttarkashi on 16th october.
however we shall inquire more on this route when we will be at uttarkashi on 12th.if it is not available we shall stay at new tehri to follow your suggested route. we have an extra day also as per the final tour plan.

regards

That's right via ghansali bus transport available from Uttrarkashi, don't know frequency however, also bus to Srinagar may be more frequent and one simply changes to another bus from there.

For your knowledge Private taxi Uttarkashi to Srinagar, approx 4500.

Dear Paleface

We shall stay at jakholi on 17th and 18th October. Hence we have to avail bus or share cab which plies via Ghansali ,mayali,Tilwara route from Uttarkashi
private taxi is expensive for us and not affordable.

I have little doubt about direct bus/ sh.jeep from Uttarkashi to Tllwara via Ghansali, Chirbatiya, Mayali. Enquire it carefully at Uttarkashi.

Like our home state the bus service is badly effected in UK due to sh.jeep/small car. For example now there is only one bus for Burrakedar from Rishikesh when it was three few years back.

The sh.jeep route from Uttarkashi to Srinagar as posted in blog (# 26) is different. Ghansali should not come on this route. As we know jakholi can be reached via Srinagar,Rudrapryag,Tilwara. But we preferred the Chirbatiya khal route.
Uttarkashi to Jakholi by bus should take long time due to break. New Tehri is best for night 16 and also for onward journey.

Dear seaface
We have also doubts on availability of getting direct bus service from Uttarkashi to Tilwara via lambgaon ,ghyansali ,chirbatiyakhal route though one of my friend engaged in trekking association of kolkata has confirmed the availability of bus/share jeep service on this route .
As per our tour plan ,we are staying at uttarkashi on 12th October. we shall inquire in detail at that time.On 16th October we are again staying at uttarkashi to avail that Bus/share jeep if it is there.otherwise 17th is the buffer day for us and we shall stay at new tehri.

Google says 158km from uttarkashi to jakholi via gyansali .it should not take 7 to 8 hours if direct transports are available.

please let me know if you get definite information on this.

we are staying two night at jakholi.Have heard that only accommodation GMVN is there.room rent is beat costly for us.

is there any private accommodation cheaper than GMVN?

if we can not afford that what is the 2nd choice where we can stay for 2 nights-Mayali ,Tilwara?

Regards

This is the shortest route. If you find any direct transport even up to Chamiyala/ Ghansali that should be best......By the way Burrakedar is only 18 km from Chamiyala.

But via New Tehri it is approx 225 km with following break.
Uttarkashi to New Tehri By bus/sh. Jeep
New Tehri to Ghansali by bus
Ghansali to Mayali by bus
Mayali to Jakholi by reserved car

Don't know about any other accommodation at Jakholi.If not Jakholi (it's expensive for me also) my choice is Kalimath and Ruch Mahadeb. But it is little off route.

If there is any extra day spend a night at Mondal valley. Probably you will enjoy the evening walk in plain land with a river.

Dear seaface

Thanks for your advice. We shall try to reach at least up to ghansali on 17th october depending upon availability of direct transport via short cut route else we shall stay at new Tehri on 17th October and shall proceed for jakholi on 18th Morning .

Dilliwalaji had suggested in another blog to stay at tilwara on the way from Gangotri and Kedarnath.
we are also thinking of staying at tilwara on 18th and 19th October if we can not afford lodging charges of GMVN Jakholi.

please let me know if any current information is available on transport on this route.

regards

2.NO DIRECT BUSES ARE AVAILABLE FROM MS TO UTTARKASHI FROM PP BUS STAND EXCEPT ONE WHICH IS UNCERTAIN SUBJECT TO AV OF SEAT(FROM DD).ONE HAS TO TAKE A BREAK AT CHAMBA TO AVAIL BUSES TO UTTARKASHI---LONGER TRAVEL ROUTE THAN VIA SUOKHALI---8 TO 9 HOURS REQUIRED TO REACH UTTARKASHI VIA CHAMBA
3.NO BUSES ARE AVAILABLE IN THE MONTH OF OCT TO AVAIL GANGOTRI FROM UTTARKASHI,ONLY SHARE JEEP SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE FROM SHARE JEEP STAND WHICH IS HALF A KILOMETER AHEAD OF UTTARKASHI MARKET----200/- PP---4.5 HOURS
4. TERRIFIC PROBLEM FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORT HAVE BEEN FACED BY US .GETTING ACCOMMODATION AT SHARE JEEP IS REALLY DIFFICULT AT GANGOTRI.
5.GANGOTRI TO HARSIL BY SHARE JEEP -100/-PP ---1HOUR
6.HARSIL TO UTTARKASHI -AGAIN PROBLEM FACED WITH THE SHARE JEEP .ONLY FEW NO OF JEEPS ARE AVAILABLE ---150/-PP 3.5 HOURS
7.HARSIL TO SRINAGAR---LONG JOURNEY VIA LAMBGAON . ONLY PRIVATE BUS SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE AT 6.30 8.00 AND 8.30 AM ---8 TO 9 HOURS REQUIRED---260/- PP
8. SRINAGAR TO BADRINARAYAN-- ONLY ONE GOVT BUS IS AVAILABLE AT SRINAGAR BUS STAND AT 8.30 AM (starts from RISHIKESH) WHICH GOES TO BADRINARAYAN DIRECTLY AT ABOUT 5PM ---GOOD SERVICE BUT DIFFICULT TO GET SEATS FROM SRINAGAR AT LEAST UP TO KARNAPRAYAG----310/-PP
9. BADRINARAYAN TO JOSHIMATH-----BY SHARE JEEP ---FREQUENT SERVICE -100/PP
10. JOSHIMATH TO AULI BY ROPEWAY AND BACK--- TRY TO AVAIL THE 1ST TRIP IN THE MORNING TO GET CLEAR SKY ---1500/PP WITH GST
11.JOSHIMATH TO DOGOLVITA-- NO DIRECT BUSES AND JEEP SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE--BREAK 1 -JOSHIMATH TO CHAMOLI BREAK 2-CHAMOLI TO GOPESHWAR -- THEN UPTO DOGOLVITA WE HAD TO HIRE AN ENTIRE JEEP FOR 2000/-

ACCOMMODATION AT BIRLA DHARAMSHALAS AT GANGOTRI AND UTTARKASHI ARE GOOD .GMVN JAKHOLI IS GOOD BUT GMVN HARSIL IS NOT UP TO THE MARK COMPARING THE COST OF ACCOMMODATION .KALI KAMLI RISHIKESH AND HARIDWAR ARE NOT BAD TO STAY.
