“The Kangra Valley Railway -- a real, genuine non-touristy mountain railway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2009

This is one of the prettiest train rides you can ever take. There's a superb view of the Dhauladhar range all the way, plus you get to rub shoulders with (or even get sat on by) the local populace. This is a real train, catering to real people -- housewives, farmers, students, tradesmen, shepherds, business people. And the fares are real, too, starting at 15 bucks. No inflation here, although I believe there is a luxury train too, if you'd rather join the fleshpots. Running between Pathankot and Joginder Nagar several times a day, it goes through the most fascinating little villages in the Kangra Valley. It's not just a tourist attraction, though it could easily be one. It's so cute, any lover of trains will swoon all over it. It's not terribly clean, but who cares? Just stick your head out of the window and enjoy!
