Once you have landed in Dalhousie, you would surely wish to know as to what all is available as a means of transport to carry you around on your excursions in the city. Well, given the steep roads and the snowfall, all the modes of transport may not be functional here.
But worry not. We are happy to do our bit. Go on reading.

  • Taxi
    For those of you who wish to explore the place on their own and want to keep a personal vehicle which you can use as per your whims, hiring a taxi car is a very good option. Depending on the type of car you are hiring, the taxi operators will charge you between INR 5000 and INR 8000 for 3 nights and 4 days. One can find taxis on the local railway station or the taxi stands. You can contact the local taxi, Taxi Union at: +91-1899- 242739
    Otherwise too you can always hop onto the local taxis whenever you have travel around Dalhouse. Do haggle over the prices then. The locals might help.
  • Bus
    Buses, across all these years, have remained the most popular means of transport in this scenic hill-station. Buses can be boarded from the arterial roads and cover most of the nooks and corners of the town.
    A trip from one end of the city to another will cost you nothing more than INR 30. So the buses are an efficient and cheap mode of travelling around the place.
  • Horse Carriage (Tonga)
    If you still have that zest to go back and experience the charm and timelessness of the old-world, these lovely horse-carriages plying almost all around the city will be your most perfect option for short trips.
    However, they are not very efficient and do not boast of much comfort or cleanliness. They are majorly advised for recreation by the locals. The fares can be very easily negotiated.

So, now that you have the various means given to you here, we are sure you will judiciously make your pick, so take any of these Dalhousie packages and set on a joyride across this city of the hills.
