How to Get There
Gaggal, about 13 kilometres from Dharamshala, is the nearest airport. Air India and Spice Jet flights connect Dharamshala and Delhi via Gaggal airport. Tourists from other regions of India will find it more convenient to fly to Chandigarh and then book a taxi to Dharamshala, which is around 275 kilometres away.
To get to Dharamshala, you can take an overnight train journey. Pathankot, 85 kilometres away, has the nearest major railway station. Pathankot serves as a stopover point for many trains bound for Jammu and Kashmir. To go to Dharamshala, you can either take a taxi or a bus from Pathankot. Kangra Mandir, a tiny railway station 22 kilometres from Dharamshala, also serves the area, but none of the major trains stop there.
Several state-run buses and private tour companies link Dharamshala to Delhi and other cities in Northern India, making it a convenient destination for visitors. The distance from Delhi is roughly 520 kilometres.
The majority of buses stop at the main bus terminal in Lower Dharamshala, however certain public Haryana Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) buses travel all the way to McLeod Ganj’s main square. It takes roughly 13 hours to travel from Delhi during night.
Risk & Respond
Trekking at High Altitudes: Risks and Reactions A high-altitude hike necessitates an adventurous mindset, but going on an exciting excursion without first evaluating the hazards is foolishness. As a result, we’ve highlighted a few concerns along with TTH’s aim to mitigate or handle them as effectively as feasible.
Altitude is a risk: Before you begin the trek, you should be aware of the effects of high altitude on your body. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) symptoms include a moderate headache, nausea, and overall discomfort.
Response: If you have any of these symptoms, immediately notify the trek leader and follow his directions. To meet the situation, each campsite contains a stretcher, a fully stocked first aid kit, and oxygen cylinders.
Risk: Weather hazard In the Himalayas, the weather can be erratic. Even if we keep a close eye on the weather, no one can promise that there will be snow, rain, or sunshine. Please keep in mind that your safety is our top priority, and if the weather isn’t cooperating, we will not leave the campsite.
Response: The Trek Leaders and Guides’ decision to go or wait for better weather will be final.
Risk: Injury is a possibility. Minor injuries like calf sprains, bruises, and other minor ailments are common while trekking through challenging terrains. Serious injuries, such as fractures or significant cuts, are quite uncommon.
Response: All of our Trek Leaders are trained in wilderness first aid. They’ve been taught to affect emergencies and have well-stocked first-aid equipment to affect minor injuries. In the event of major injuries, the patient is carried to the nearest road-head on a stretcher and taken to the nearest medical facility.
