Pathankot Tourism & Travel Guide

Located at the foothills of Kangra in Himachal Pradesh, Pathankot is a beautiful city famous for its rich historical past. Lush greenery, winding mountain roads, sparkling clear waters and clean, crisp mountain air make Pathankot a delight for every nature lover. Pathankot was once the capital of the state of Nurpur, and the city's glorious past can be traced back to the mighty Nurpur Fort. About 900 years old, this fort was built by Pathania Rajputs and later renamed by Shah Jahan after his beloved wife Nur Jahan. Pathankot houses two of the most revered temples of the region, namely Kathgarh temple and Nagni temple. The Kathgarh temple's 6-feet-high Shivalinga will leave you wide eyed. Decorated with intricate carvings, the Nagni temple is dedicated to the goddess of snakes and is believed to grant the wishes of the faithful. To reach Pathankot, one can easily catch a bus from Delhi or Chandigarh.

Now my journey started from Mumbai, my city. I picked up the train for chakki bank station, then next day i used a bus service for tour of Temple of Mata Aashta Bhuja, Saperu. then, after a night stay in temple, washed out from soul then, I moved to the path of Dharamshala by bus. Journey was very good & the view which i saw inside from the bus was amazed me. Many of the foreigners , domestic people sat on the rocks of valleys and studied books, Meditations. I was seeing the view to the very sincere way. then bus reached to the bus top. Some people went out and come in. I was surprised to see people because everyone was very happy without any reason, then i learned Happiness not come from any reasons or things, It is our greatest assets and it's our rights.Now I reached to the Dharamshala.Dharamshala is divided into two distinct areas that are separated by a 20-30 mins, 10 kms bus or jeep ride.Lower Dharamsala, consists of most of the government offices, Schools, the local Hospital, and commercial areas. It also has a few tea gardens. One in the area of Chilgari and another just beyond Dari. It is a typical small Indian town that, other than for the bus station, is of little interest to tourists. One can enjoy the view while driving through.

Weekend Getaways from Pathankot 

Best time to visit - January,February,March,April,May,June,October,November,December
Once known as Shyamala, synonymous with Goddess Kali, Shimla has been a summer retreat long before India even gained independence. This famous hill station similarly has a lot of places and things to see untouched by time. For instance, take a vintage joy ride from Kalka station to Shimla in a charming toy train that will take you through towering Deodars, hills and villages. Shimla truly comes alive during winters when a blanket of snow covers it all over making every nook and corner gleam and glisten. One such place is the ice skating rink (natural ice) near Lakkar Bazaar that opens from November to December. More winter sports include skiing, which can be enjoyed 21 km from Shimla in Kufri. Adventure activities such as rafting at Tattapani or a trek to Shali Tibba and Pabbar Valley are also worthwhile experiences. If you are fond of haunted stories and interested in having your own spooky adventure, you'll love Shimla. A lot of people including the renowned Rudyard Kippling (in 'My Own True Ghost Story) have written various eerie stories set around Shimla. A place known most for giving many people the jeepers-creepers is the Charleville Mansion. Another time travelling portal is the antique bookstore, Marina Brothers, located on Mall Road, which is truly a reader and collector's paradise. There are many luxury and budget hotels here, meaning you'll never fall short of options. Popular places to eat include Wake & Bake, Ashiana, Cecil and Minchy's that serve commendable Indian and multi-cuisine dishes and delicious gourmet food.
