it is recommended to take the train as it will be cheaper and more
comfortable as compared to other modes of transportation. The nearest
international airport is New Delhi. You can easily take a train from
Delhi to Pathankot, the nearest broad gauge railways station, and then
to Kangra--the nearest meter gauge station. From Kangra you can take a
taxi to McLeodganj which will only take about 20 to 30 minutes.
There is frequent bus service also that you can take. This
route might take more time but, considering the picturesque setting of
mountains and valleys, this is worth taking.
You can easily find a hotel or rest house with all the basic
amenities at a minimum cost. However, before choosing one, make sure it
is within walking distance from your area of interest. For example, if
you are here on a pilgrimage then it is better to stay in and around
the temple area rather than in a hotel on the outskirts. Mentioned
