train journey would mean that you will have to go to ambala first and den change trains there, as there is no direct link between the jal and shimla.... bus would probably be through chandigarh...cant really specify nythin bout times as it depends upon the train you take nd if it gets delayed....bus shld be 8 hours!!!!

As suggested by Indian-jones, there is no direct connectivity between Jalandhar and Shimla. First you will have to reach Chandigarh ...Its best to take AC bus from Jalandhar to Chandigarh. There are about 4 Mercedes/Volvo Bus operators between Amritsar to Chandigarh...all these buses pass through Jalandhar Byepass. You can pre-book these buses and board from either PAP Chownk Or from Haveli Restaurant . Alternatively, normal buses/government AC buses operate every 5-10 mins from Jalandhar to Chandigarh from Jalandhar bus stand.

Once you reach Chandigarh, you will have to take a train/bus further to Kalka. My suggestion is to take bus to Kalka/Shimla. The toy train to Shimla starts from Kalka (Narrow Gauge Line) and it takes more than 6 hours to reach Shimla.

The fastest is bus travel. Jalandhar - Chandigarh - Shimla - Approx 8 hours with back to back connectivity.
