Anyone done this journey before?

Do I have to massively advance book tickets or can I buy them the day before?

Also what's the bus like from Pathankot to Dharamsala?

Thanks.

There are options of bus as well as train. Train you need to book.

Are you going to Pathankot to get to Dharamsala/McLeod Ganj? If so I'd reccomend taking a bus. It's more straight forward and probably quicker (and cheaper) than transferring in Pathankot.

Yes I am and was thinking the transfer is something I could do without.

Also there isn't really anything to see in Pathankot. I paid just under 400 rs from Delhi to McLeod, it took about 12 hours including stops and a half hour fight with the luggage hold door which got jammed by dislodged luggage!!!

My last trip was by bus, but is was chartered so everyone knew each other etc.

Where in Delhi does the bus go from and what sort of time? Are there many food/toilet stops?

if you're thinking of going by train, book in advance, you're right it's tuff to get tickets on that route, choose a train that drops you early morning (till 5am) @Pathankot, and then you can get a bus to Mcleodganj from the HRTC bus stand at the Rly Stn itself....otherwise you can take an HRTC volvo bus to Mcleodganj, do book tickets in advance!

I have heard good things about the train ride , but always wound up taking the bus from Majnu ka Tilla- I guess you are familiar with Majnu. I got good service from a new travel agent just across Wongdhen House this year, they should be able to set you up with bus or train tickets in advance.
Let me know if you want the contact info.

I'm staying in Majnu ka Tilla so that would be the best option. I've got accomodation sorted, but the travel agent details would be 'jettekult'.

Takk sa mycket!
