there're 3 options:
road
railways
air

by road, you can go to delhi and get both luxury and usual buses straight to d'shala, or go to Shimla-Bilaspur-Hamirpur-Kangra- Dharamshala, that can be a sort of sight seeing trip with small breaks!

by rails, you can go from delhi-amritsar/pathankot then dharamshala, by further rail or road, whatever you like, its not very far from pathankot!!

by air, you can book a flight from delhi to gaggal (near bilaspur), take a bus or taxi from bilaspur to dharamshala!

feel free to ask for more

No need to go to Delhi.

You can:

1. Take the Hemkunt express from Rishikesh till Chakki Bank. From Chakki Bank take a bus/shared taxi/independent taxi.

2. Come to Haridwar and take a direct bus to Dharamshala. It's an ordinary bus.

3. Come to Dehradun and take the Air Conditioned night bus to Dharamshala.
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Thanks for the Help!

Thanks so much for your help ! .. I ended up getting a train from Rishikesh to Chakkibank ... I then got a rickshaw to Pattankot where I was going to catch the local bus but was then offered a ride in a taxi by two nice ladies and I only had to ay the fee I was going to pay for the bus ! .. SO thanks again, the advice helped a lot.
