We are a family of four and will be travelling from Katra to Dalhousie. I have the following options in mind:
Option 1: Hire a taxi from Katra to Dalhousie.
Option 2: (a) Katra to Jammu by Taxi = Rs. 1200 (b) Jammu to Pathankot by train Rs. 80 * 4 = Rs. 320 (c) Pathankot to Dalhousie by Taxi = Rs. 1200. Total = Rs. 2720
I am not sure about the cost for option 1 and would like to know which one would be cheaper.
Also the train from Jammu to Pathankot i.e. Jat Adi Express departs at 0740 hrs. Please let me know if it would be feasible to travel from Katra to Jammu at 0530 – 0600 hrs in the morning?
I read in one of the posts that the road to Dalhousie is closed. What is the current status? If it is closed, please suggest a comparable nearby destination where we can spend 2-3 days.
