ISBT Kasmiri Gate 1/7 by Tripoto

Get Bus from Delhi to Other States
The gate was built by military engineer Robert Smith in 1835. It was the Northern Gate that leads way to the walled city of Delhi. The name of the gate was given so because the way from the gate led to Kashmir. This is still one of the prime attractions of the city mainly because it is the gateway to many an important attraction such as the Red Fort, St. James’ Church and others. This is also a symbol that brightens up the history of the capital city, earlier known as Shahjahanabad. When the British Raj started, the rulers found the walls of the city in a state of ruins. It was decided then that the repair work will be started soon and what resulted was the Kashmiri or Kashmere Gate. The ISBT stands for the Inter State Bus Terminal. It is also known as the Maharana Pratap Bus Terminal and it forms one of the most important communication links in the city.

Day 1: Next day I booked Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation 10:00 hrs bus going to Haridwar. The bus reached ISBT Kashmiri Gate at 11:00 hrs. The bus was expected to alight us at 17:00 hrs. But we were late by 2 hrs as little did i know that I'm going to find a huge jam the moment we entered U.P. and then the rest was done at Roorkie. At Haridwar we got to know that there's only one bus going towards Auli which could drop us at Rudrapyag and that too departs at 5:30 in the morning. After booking tickets then and there in advance as is was 8-9 hrs journey i didn't want to be uncertain about my seats in the bus, the ticket would cost ₹470 as there is a flat ticket regardless if u need to drop in between. And we left to find a hotel for the night stay.Day 2: The Bus departed at 6:00 and after a long 8-9 hrs journey we were finally at Rudrapryag. Now I didn't had a clue on how to reach deorital, I asked some taxi drivers and I'm telling u don't even dare to ask em they were asking for ₹1500 to ₹3000. And then I found out that there was a bus at 14:30 hrs that cost us just ₹60. At 18:00 hrs we started the trek to Deorital. But the action was left to happen. At around 19:30 hrs it started to rain and and the visibility was near zero we all had our headlamps on, by 20:00 hrs it was raining heavily and we were yet to set the tent. By the time the tent was ready to take us in I was soaked now it's sleep time ... Atleast that's what I thought and expected.

I boarded Uttarakhand State Roadways bus from ISBT Kashmere Gate (Delhi) and reached Haridwar after an overnight journey. I had even travelled by my own car and once by train from New Delhi Railway Station which takes comparatively fewer hours than a road journey. When we reached Haridwar in the morning, the city welcomed us with a cool breeze. The serene view of Shivaliks and River Ganga heals all your tiredness. After getting down at Haridwar bus stop we took an auto for Baba Harihar Dham, a dharamshala located in Motichur region of Haridwar.Stay At Dharamshala & Innumerable Memories

As we all are corporate slaves so after having months of work, we decided to go to some hilly areas. After doing some googling we have decided to go Dharamshala and McLeod Ganj.On Friday eve we took a Volvo bus from Kashmere gate (New Delhi). It is always better to book Volvo from Himachal roadways. It was a 12 hour journey till Dharamshala. Wait wait, we have not reach Dharamshala yet. What more add on to the flavour is the Dhabas culture of Haryana. You can have delicious food on the highway till Chandigarh, started from Ambrik Sukhdev at murthal, Jhilmil dhaba at Karnal and Chache da dhaba at Kurukshetra. If you have more money in pocket you can leverage the haweli culture all along the highway. You can enjoy your dinner for the night on these places. But please avoid MACd or KFC on this highway because you can get it in your metro or tier 1/2 city also.For the tea time you can enjoy near Una which is again a 3 hour journey from Chandigarh.Most of the Volvo buses halted at these places and if you are travelling with your personal vehicle you are the sole decider for the stops.But please do not sleep during the journey, as the roads and the alongside beauty after Una will add more flavour to your trip. Which can be a perfect start for the trip.

My exams completed on 11th June and on 12th noon, I made a phone call to my friend Piyush and asked him " Chal kahi ghumne chalte hain ". His reply was " chal, but kahan ?" I said "kasol".Then we met at kashmere gate metro station at 6 pm and boarded a bus of 9: 15 pm and that was the starting of our memorable trip to kasol.It was an ordinary HRTC bus with fare rs 585 per person.The bus stopped at Murthal. The halt was supposed to be of 2 minutes but I somehow managed to made that halt of 20 minutes :D.Then bus took another half hour halt for dinner at 12 30 am(yes u read that right) and resumed its journey towards the land of mountains.

DAY 4Early in the morning at 5, we were at ISBT Kashmere Gate, there was a huge line outside the metro and so we decided to board the metro from Civil Lines which hardly ever has any soul boarding the metro. We took the first train to Huda City Centre and reached my place and dozzed off again.

Kashmere Gate ISBT, Delhi: A mad dash through the bus terminus saw me aboard the 7:24pm bus to Rampur (HRTC air-conditioned service; 1,200 Rupees). Soon the coach was speeding down NH 44 heading North. After a pit-stop for a wholesome dinner of roti, dal, vegetables, and yoghurt (130 Rupees) at Murthal, we were off again, racing toward the mountain destination of Rampur, my first stop.
