By Air
You could fly down to Bhuntar Airport, at 10 km from  the Kullu Valley. There are daily flights being operated by the Indian Airlines, Deaccan Airways ( 1 hour flight from Delhi) and a helicopter ( 2 hours ) by Jagson Airlines. The tariff varies from Rs 3000- 7000 depending on the time you book. Once in Bhuntar you can hire a taxi from the union or ring us up to arrange your travel arrangements.

By Rail
If your catching a train from anywhere else in the country you might by pass Delhi and stop over at Ambala ( 8 hours by road from the Tirthan Valley) or even continue to the Railhead at Kiratpur ( 7 hours ). Taxis and buses are easily available for the remainder of the journey from just outside the railway station at Ambala. We also send local taxiís to the railway stations from the valley for ease of access. A shatabadi down to Chandigrah and a taxi is a comfortable way to come up. Taxi charges from Chandigrah to Kullu valley Valley may vary from 3500 Ė 5000 depending on capacity.

By Road
To get to the Kullu (550 kms from Delhi) one must turn off on NH21 .  The roads are fine all the way. There are two ways to do this. Drive down in One day. An early morning departure at 5 a.m. from Delhi should have you in Chandigarh by 11 a.m., at Aut by 5 p.m. and at the Kullu Valley by 6.30 p.m. in time to freshen up, stretch your legs on a short walk, and sit around a bonfire before dinner.

Another way to do it is to break journey at the Tourist Rest House in Bilaspur / Sawarghat along the way . You could leave Delhi at 11 a.m. to be in Bilaspur by 7 p.m. in time to book in. An early departure at 6 a.m. the next morning will have you in the valley by 11 a.m. with most of the day still ahead of you.

One of the most popular ways to come to the valley is the air conditioned Volvo bus . which can be caught opposite Imperial Hotel on Janpath at 6 p.m. It stops for dinner enroute at about 9.30 p.m. and reaches Aut about 7 a.m. The overnight journey can be quite painless if you slip into the spirit of things. . Bus tickets cost approximately Rs. 400 - 500 each ( deluxe) , 800 ( Sleeper) 1000 ( Volvo) and the taxi, seating 5 0r 6 from Aut, another Rs. 200per head. One can be in mobile touch as we send taxiís to pick up guests early morning to reach this amazing valley.

Traveling back is much the same with the bus leaving from Aut at about 6 p.m. It hits Delhi at about 7 a.m. the next morning and after a brief rest at home you should be able to take on a days work at the office.
