So I reached Pathankot early in the morning at 3:00 Am
. Since the bus stand is far away from Pathankot Railway Station , so I board a journey in a shared Auto ( Fair : 20 Rs per head only ) .From there I took an ordinary bus (or Himachal Roadways ) for Dalhousie which costs me Rs 130 to reach Dalhousie. Actually for reaching Dalhousie , there are lot of direct buses for Banikhet ( Chamba District) from where the distance of Dalhousie is only 6 Kms.
So you can also take bus for Banikhet as well. There are lot of private buses for Dalhousie from Banikhet .
As I was lucky , so I got a direct bus for Dalhousie from Pathankot Bus Stand. It takes about 3 hrs to reach Dalhousie . So I reached Dalhousie at 8 Am in the morning . The next target is to take a room for 1 night to take rest . So I searched and concluded that the rooms which was on the main roads like near bus stand and Mall Road , there costs are very high . (Normally INR 2000 or 3000 ) . But if you want to stay in budget , so take a room which is on the upside or downside of the hills or main road because there costs are normal for a budget traveller . As I was in a group of two ( means we two people) , we took a room ( SONAM GUEST HOUSE ) in 600 Rs which means we divided money in 300-300 Rs to stay .
After a rest of 2-3 hours , we sat out to explore Dalhousie .
Firstly we visited Sant. Jone's Church which was built in 1863 by the Sant Jones and Peter . This is the British style Protestant Church and have Sant Jones and Peter's Paintings.
After that , we walked for 1 hrs to reached Panchpula which is the place for adventures lover. There you can do many adventures activities like zip-lining and all in only 100 Rs per ride.
After spending sometime there we came back to our hotel . It was 4 pm when we came to our hotel. And believe me if you covers some distance by trekking and walking , you always got time to feel nature views and for photoshoot. If I talk about lunch and all, so you can feed yourself in 80 rs only. In breakfast , you can take aaloo -pratha and tea in just only 50 Rs . Well I would not like to discuss about meals , because it can vary person to person . But recommended to take heavy meals when you travel.
In the evening , we sat our for markets and mall roads and famous places like Subhash Chowk and all.
The markets are very beautiful in the Dalhousie.
