Rishikesh --> Shimla

Hi,

I would like to get advice on traveling from Rishikesh to Shimla? I will be traveling around the 19th March. I have heard about the Kolka Shimla train which sound great, but how does one get to Kolka?

Thanks in advance,

Kalka is nearly 65+ kms from Ambala, so you need to catch a Bus from RIshikesh or Dehradoon for Ambala or Zirakpur or direct Kalka, and the timing should match with Kalka Shimla Train.

As I remember, Kalka Shimla leavs Kalka 6:30 to 7AM. there are 2 more trains around 9:30AM and 12PM. Please check irctc.co.in website.

Best option is to take Bus/Taxi from Rishikesh to Kalka. It is 225 KMs. Bus will take 6 to 7 Hrs. whereas Taxi will take 5 Hrs.
