How to Reach Punjab

How to get there by Air

Amritsar and Ludhiana are the two main airports in Punjab linked to Delhi by regular flight services. The Union Territory of Chandigarh functions as the capital of Punjab and Haryana also has a domestic terminus that is connected to many places of importance in India.

How to get there by Rail

Trains ply between Delhi and Chandigarh and Amritsar and then you can get a connecting train to anywhere in India from Delhi. Lucknow, Calcutta and Varanasi also have direct train routes to Amritsar.

How to get there by Road

Driving into Punjab is probably the best way to get here as all the national and state highways are well maintained and have plenty of enroute service stations and highway motels/restaurants. Little “dhabas” dot the highways all over Punjab and one of the pleasures of driving through the state is to stop and have a meal at one of them. You will not be disappointed! The bus services are good and consistent with the option of deluxe airconditioned or ordinary buses. Hired cars or private cabs also make for great driving - Amritsar from Delhi (7 hours), Chandigarh - Delhi is 5 hours.

The road crossing between Pakistan and Punjab is at Wagah (Indian side). The border is open daily between 0900 to 1600 hours. The Samjhauta Express bus connects Lahore (Pakistan) to Delhi passes through Punjab though is often delayed for border checkings and immigration formalities.
