TRAVEL OPTIONS
   

1. Fly: Delhi - Dharamshala (Gaggal airport)
For your convenience, we suggest that you fly with the group on the follow flight:
Delhi - Dharamshala: Sunday Sept. 20. Air India - AI 9713

Departure time from Delhi 10:55 - Arrival time in Dharamshala 12.40
Approx cost: 5.500 rps
Early bookings are cheaper, so it's best that you do not postpone.

Write to Mayank for any questions and we suggest you run your travel plans by him before your final booking.
Return Travel: Dharamshala - Delhi, Saturday Oct. 3. Air India - AI 9714 (see more return travel details below)

2. Train: Delhi - Pathankot (7-10.5 hr) & then taxi to Bir (2.5 hr)
Only if you want a classic Indian train experience would I suggest you travel by train.
There are a few trains from Delhi to Pathankot, both day trains and overnight trains with sleeping berths.
If you choose to travel by train, allow us to book your train ticket for you, to ensure you get the right train and we can also arrange a taxi to meet your train and drive you to Bir.
Approx. cost: Delhi to Pathankot train - 800 rps.
Taxi from Pathankot to Gaggal airport Dharamshala (75km - 2 hours) - 3.500 rps.

3. Overnight Volvo bus: Delhi - Bir (12 hours)
Approx. cost: 1100 rps. It is easier if we book your bus ticket for you.

You may also like to arrive earlier and spend a few days in Mcleodganj, Dharamshala. In which case, you simply need to taxi or bus from Mcleodganj to Gaggal airport to meet the group by 13:00 on Sunday 20 Sept.

*** If you opt to make your own travel arrangements, please inform Mayank of your plans.

RETURN TRAVEL FROM NAGAR, KULLU VALLEY - DELHI
   

Taxi Nagar - Dharamshala (Gaggal airport) & then fly Dharamshala - Delhi.
We suggest you return to Delhi via Dharamshala (the reverse route of how we arrived).
There are 2 Air India flights and 2 Spice Jet flights a day from Dharamshala - Delhi.
We suggest you take: Air India - AI-9714 Depart 13:05 - Arrive Delhi 14:50

NOTE: It is very unlikely the Dharamshala-Delhi flight would be cancelled and yet, you should allow 20 hours before the departure of your international flight, so that if the flight is cancelled you will have time to share a group taxi and drive to Delhi.

Fly from Kullu- Delhi:
Kullu-Delhi flight AI-9806. Departure time 08:25. Arriving in Delhi 09:40

This flight does get expensive and due to changable weather in Kullu valley may be cancelled. The Dharamshala flight to Delhi is more reliable.

NOTE: You must allow a minimum 20 hours before the departure of your international flight, so that if the Kullu flight is cancelled you will have time to share a group taxi and drive to Delhi.

Book online or contact Adhi if you would like him to book your domestic flight.

Travel by road to Delhi:  
By taxi: At the retreat we can arrange a shared taxi directly to Delhi or to Chandigarh from where you can fly or train to Delhi.

By Volvo bus: The overnight Volvo bus from Kullu-Delhi is an easy and reliable option to be sure to arrive on time in Delhi. The bus departs at 19.00 hrs, arriving in Delhi 07.00 hrs.

Arriving in Delhi: We can arrange for a reliable taxi to meet your bus, drive you to your hotel to rest for the day and pick you up again later that evening to take you to Delhi airport for your international flight.
