The best way to travel to Pithoragarh from Chennai is by air. A train journey will be immensely tiring and take days to reach the destination. The nearest railhead to Pithoragarh is at Tanakpur, which is 138 kilometers away. From there you can either hire a taxi or take a bus.

However, if you plan to travel by air, it will take you close to 6 hours to reach Pithoragarh from Chennai. The nearest airport from Pithoragarh is Pantnagar, which is 241 kilometers away. You will first need to reach Delhi Airport from Chennai and then take a flight to Pantnagar Airport. From the Airport you can a hire a cab to Pithorgarh. You can search for flights on our site and book your tickets accordingly. 

You also have the option to take a bus from Delhi and reach Pithoragarh. It takes some 8 to 10 hours by road and it is quite a pleasant journey. There are a number of buses that ply regularly from ISBT in Delhi. However, these are not direct buses and depending on what your last stop is, which could either be Haldwani, Tanakpur or Almora, you can take a cab till Pithorgarh. For booking your bus tickets you can log into our site.  

If you plan to hire a vehicle from Delhi, the route via Almora is considered to be the best and takes minimum amount of time.
