By Bus from Delhi to Mcleod Ganj and Dharamsala
There are a number of buses departing Delhi for Dharamsala each day. Most stop in lower Dharamsala and you will need to catch another bus or taxi up to Mcleodganj and Naddi.
Buses departing from the Tibetan area of Majnukatilla in the early evening, arrive in Mcleodganj early in the morning. Getting to Dharamsala by bus trip usually takes about 12 hours, including several stops during the night.
Tickets for Dehli to Dharamsala buses can be purchased through any travel agent.
For buses direct to Mcleodganj, tickets can be purchased from travel agents in Majnukatilla. Tickets cost 550 INR (about $14).
The buses can be quite cramped, with little leg room, and even painful when the person in front of you tips their seat back. If you're able to make your reservations in advance, request seats 1, 2, 3, or 4 for the most comfortable ride.
And although the buses may be cramped, the ride can be very peaceful, as Tibetan monks frequently take the bus from Majnukatilla to Dharamsala.
By Taxi from Delhi to Dharamsala
Getting to Dharamsala by taxi can take from 8 - 14 hours. A large air conditioned taxi with capacity up to nine people can be arranged for approximately 7000 INR (about $179).
