How to reach Srinagar...

By Road

Srinagar is accessible by road from all directions of Uttaranchal. However, there are few main routs which take you to Srinagar if you are approaching from New Delhi.

1.a. Delhi to Haridwar - 220 kms.
1.b. From Haridwar via Rishikesh - 132 kms.

Rishikesh-Srinagar - 108 kms.
If you have broken your journey and starting from Rishikesh, there are regular trips available run by GMOU. We recommend you to start your journey early. Taking more than 100 kms. journey post afternoon in the hills is not recommended and bus frequency also lessen towards sunset.

Follow the National Highway 58 (Delhi - Badrinath/Mana)
Starting Delhi Border - Ghaziabad - Modinagar - Meerut - Muzaffarnagar - Manglaur - Roorkee - Haridwar - Rishikesh - Shivpuri - Devaprayag - Srinagar

2.a. Delhi to Kotdwar - 287 kms.
2.b. From Kotdwar via Pauri - 138 kms.

Follow the National Highway 58 (Delhi - Badrinath/Mana) upto Meerut
Starting Delhi Border - Ghaziabad - Modinagar- Meerut

From Meerut, take the State Highway to:
Bijnore - Najibabad - Kotdwar - Dugadda - Satpuli - Pauri - Srinagar

If you are not compelled to go via Kotdwar, the National Highway 58 - the Delhi-Rishikesh-Srinagar route is ideal and which is mostly chosen by all. The road is fairly decent and saves your time.

The most convenient way to get to Uttaranchal is by road. The golden triangle of Haridwar, Rishikesh and Dehradun in Garhwal region is a reasonably well-maintained road link from Delhi as is getting to Nainital, Almora and other tourist destinations of Kumaon. Buses reach to virtually every tourist point of Uttaranchal. The state roadway has a very extensive network - plying deluxe, express and air-conditioned coaches.

And, Srinagar does not offer other options such as Rail or Air as means of direct access. From any direction, a minimum distance of about 100 kms. has to be covered by road only.

Nearest Railhead is either Rishikesh (108 kms.) or Kotdwar (138 kms.).

And the nearest Airport is Jolly Grant, Dehradun (149 kms.).

To reach Kotdwar or Haridwar, if you are settled with your own or any private vehicle, the National Highway No. 58 (Delhi to Badrinath-Mana) has to be followed.

There is a good frequency of govt. and private bus-services from ISBT, New Delhi for going by road and also a number of trains available from New Delhi to reach Haridwar. Rail Reservation well in advance is advisable if you want to take up the Train. Beware of touts/agents who are often found around Bus-stations, Hotels, and Railway Stations. In case of taking a bus, ensure your seat no., type of bus and its departure before hand.
