The most widely used route is:

Delhi - Ambala - Kharar - Ropar - Nangal - Una - Dehra - Ranital - Kangra - Nagrota - Palampur.

Alternate route(shorter) is:

Delhi - Ambala - Kharar - Ropar - Kiratpur Saheb - Bilaspur - Hamirpur - Sujanpur - Palampur.

This route has much higher percentage of hilly terrain to negotiate compared to the 1st route & might not be the fastest.....

Agreed with Ashish on the route. Taragarh is 11Km from Palampur on route to Baijnath. So route extends further...

Is there any good place to break journey on this route? I prefer driving only300-350 km per day..

Hello Ashish,

The route suggested by you is absolutely correct. Just after Ambala Cantt flyover there is a diversion for either Chandigarh or Amritsar. We have to take the Amritsar route and follow it straight till you reach a major toll. There is a right turn just before the toll which will lead to Kharar-Ropar.
