Hi there,
we are three people planning our second trip to India in march 2019.
For the northern leg of our trip, after some days in McLeod Ganj, we would like to proceed to Amritsar for a 3 days stay.
I've found (on there are two daily buses to Amritsar , but they leave from Dharamsala (not McLeod) very early in the morning (4:10AM and 5AM - trip takes about 5 hours). How can we reach this bus from McLeod Ganj so early in the morning? Should we plan to sleep in Dharamsala the night before?

Or maybe we should take a bus to Pathankot (there are 7 buses - about 3 hours trip) and then a train to Amritsar (PRK - ASR, 2,5-3 hours).

Would it be possible to find a taxi that can carry us to Amritsar, and how much would it cost us?

What is in your opinion the advisable mean of transport between McLeod Gnj and Amritsar?

Many thanks in advance

I think from Dharmshala (lower Mcleadganj) you can take bus to Pathankot and from there by train to Amritsar. The journey as per me is convenient than other options

It will be best to take taxi from Mc Leod Ganj to Amritsar. Going by bus to Pathankot is not so easy, due to crazy driver, pothole roads etc. Not easy either travel by train from Pathankot to Amritsar. That train is not express train, passenger train. Usually arriving late, no seat reservation system etc.

You can check from Taxi Stand in Mac lead Ganj about the rates. Or, call my friend Mr. Anju and he will let you reach Amritsar wit a lot of fun. *+91 821-9474761‬

We did a cab couple of years back. But can't remember the exact cost. Also, we had the cab for a few days before. Hence, can't recall the split for that trip. The car owner is an excellent guy and well reputed on this forum. Couple of friends have availed his service as well. You can call him on this number and he won't disappoint you.
