Hello, could anyone give me some advice on the best way to travel from Rishikesh or Haridwar to Shimla, then Manali, then Dharamsala? I hear bus is probably the best route, do busses connect in all these places? Any idea of the length of these bus rides? Thanks to all.

This says there are no routes from Haridwar to Shimla. How do you get to Dehradun? By taxi? Anyone know how far Dehradun is from Haridwar? Thanks

Dehradoon - Haridwar is around 50 kms. There are frequent buses plying between those two cities. If you are not comfortable taking a bus you can take a cab. There are also trains between them.

Also call the number mentioned in the earlier link. I think there should be a bus from Haridwar to Rishikesh.

There are direct buses from Shimla and Manali to Haridwar.

Basically there are two routes from Haridwar.

1) Haridwar - Roorkee - Ambala - Chandigarh - Shimla or Manali.

2) Haridwar - Dehradun - Paonta - Nahan - Shimla.

While most buses to Shimla take the second route, there are few buses which come by the first route also.

The first route is more comfortable when traveling to Shimla as it is mostly in the plains. Time taken is almost the same.

Haridwar to Manali is a 16 hour grinding drive where as Haridwar Shimla is a 9-10 hours drive. Most buses are overnight buses.

Besides HRTC, Uttrakhand and UP Roadways buses are also available on this route.

If traveling to Shimla, take the overnight bus via Roorkee-Chandigarh route.
