Nainital to Haridwar

Hello,

I'm planning to go from Nainital to Haridwar in the morning/day (Nov. 25.) - are there any bus or rail options? If not, is it possible to hire a vehicle and what should it cost? Thanks a lot in advance for answering. Regards, linde83

There is no direct train in between, you may hire a car, it would charge Rs.5500 (Indigo) or Rs.8000 (Innova) the journey takes 7 hrs approx.

Thank you for the helpful answers.

I would like to travel by day because I believe it's a nice journey (or?) which I don't want do sleep through.. I would like to reach Haridwar for the evening Aarti (anyone who knows when it starts by the way?)

Are there no morning-buses neither from Nainital, nor from Haldwani/Kathgodam?

Did you mean the car rent is possible from Nainital or from Haldwani? Do Indigo have comfortable, secure AC cars? ( Rs. 5500)

One more question: I will arrive Kathgodam early in the morning. Is it preferable to go by bus or taxi to Nainital? What should a taxi cost?

Thanks again.

Best regards

Car can be hired from Nainital itself. Indigo is a comfortable AC car, however, Innova is the most comfortable as well as secured for hilly terrains.

Cabs readily available at Kathgodam on arrival of major trains. Small car will charge Rs.750 for Nainital.
