Hi Folks,

I visited Kulu and Manali back in 1983, and would like to revisit this autumn, now that I have retired...

My hope is to discover a bus or coach that connects from Manali to Jogindar Nagar, in order that I can travel by train to Pathancot. (The train ride is a must, but I can catch the train at a stop nearer to Pathancot if that makes connections easier...)

I assume that I will have to change bus somewhere, maybe Dharamsala area?

Any suggestions welcome!

Edwin

Have you tried using this to conduct your search - http://hrtc.gov.in/hrtctickets/Availability.aspx.

It's not working at the moment for me, might be due to corporate firewall.

That's a long time to wait for a trip. All the best!

Hi,

Thanks, I can probably stitch something together with the websites and a map, was just wondering if anyone knew the main bus hubs and easy route!

Cheers,


Edwin

You could change the bus at Mandi. There is a direct bus from Manali to Dharamshala. Check at the bus stand if it goes via Joginder Nagar.

Thanks aarosh,

I looked on google maps and it seems as if the bus route from Manali to Dharamsala via Mandi is pretty much bound to pass Joginder Nagar.
When I visited many years ago, we would just go point to point... get down from bus and find somewhere to stay, but my wish now to take trains where possible will mean a lot of pre planning this time...

Cheers,


Edwin

Kangra Palampur Jogindernagar e.t.c. too are on rail track.
Dharamshala is not.

There are 2 ordinary buses every morning that go Manali-Kullu-Jogindarnagar Dharmsala. One of these can be booked online from Manali upto Jogindarnagar. The second one cannot be booked online, but quite possible there's advance booking at Manali bus station upto J'nagar, you'd have to check. In any case it can surely be taken upto J'nagar if there are seats, but that ticket would have to be bought on departure at the bus station (if no advance booking possible).
Either bus could also be boarded at Kullu of course, if seats are available.

There are other buses listed on HRTC's site from Manali to Pathankot which would pass through J'nagar.
Other than that, there could be more buses originating at Manali or Kullu headed for Palampur, Kangra, Dhasa or Pathankot via J'nagar, you'd have to check.
And lastly, Mandi is another place from where buses would be available for J'nagar.

Tell you what else has changed in 30 years, the spellings of two of the places, to Kullu and Pathankot.

Certainly does. There's only one route between Manali and Dhasa and J'nagar is right enroute.

Yes, Mandi is indeed the place to change buses if required.
