Himachal Pradesh is one of India’s most beautiful destination in north India for Hill stations, full of mystical dreamy charms, enveloped in a unique mesmerizing appeal. The popular Hill stations of Himachal Pradesh are always full of tourists, be it any season or time of the year. Hence, presented here is a comprehensive guide on how to reach Himachal Pradesh most conveniently by Air, Road and Train mediums.
Any lack in Train or air connectivity is more than compensated by roads which link to all major cities across India. The roads are tough and reliable. Besides there are affordable bus services organized by the State Government that also connect well to other important cities like Kashmir, Delhi, Haryana and Chandigarh.
Being a mountainous area, surrounded by lofty hills, there are no major railway tracks anywhere within the state. For tourists opting for railway travel, the best option to reach Himachal is the Kalka Railway Station, located approximately 90 kilometers away from Shimla. From here, you either have the choice of travelling by road or ride the famous toy train (A UNESCO World Heritage) into the picturesque hilly regions of this amazing destination.
Although being a major tourist destination in India, air connectivity to this state is not as robust and reliable as other stations in the country. Jubbarhatti Airport in Kullu, Bhuntar Airport in Shimla and Gaggal Airport in Kangra, connect by flights to major Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Chandigarh. Taxis and cabs provide easy connectivity from these airports to within the state.
