Getting to Jaiharikhal
By Road (From Delhi) – about 6 hours travel
The best way to get to us by road is as follows:
Stage 1: Delhi to Meerut 70 kms. If you leave Delhi by 0600 hrs then one can go right through Meerut town, upto Begum Bridge and turn RIGHT on the Mawana road ( NH 119).
If you leave Delhi later than 0600 hrs, then you should take the Meerut by-pass to avoid traffic delays. Drive approximately 9 kms on the by-pass, and you will come across a second flyover. DO NOT go over this fly-over, but take a RIGHT turn from below the fly-over and proceed towards the Cantonment. After 3 kms you will come across another fly-over – but DO NOT go over this. Instead, take a left turn next to it and enter an Army gate. Proceed another 2 kms till you hit a T-JUNCTION, then take a RIGHT turn and cross a rail line, then immediately after that take a LEFT turn and the natural turn to the RIGHT. You will see another couple of Army gates on your right, and then come to a CROSS ROAD. Continue going STRAIGHT till you come to another CROSS ROAD where there is a huge Hanuman statue. Here you need to take a LEFT turn and after approx 800m take a RIGHT turn till you reach Sophia Girls Higher Secondary school. Keep the school on your right and continue going straight till you reach the Meerut- Haridwar highway. Here you will need to cut DIAGONALLY RIGHT, which is the road to Mawana/Bijnor.
BREAK: Stop over at Monty Millions a restaurant just 2 kms out of Meerapur. It has clean rest rooms & you can have breakfast/lunch depending on the time you reach there.
STAGE 2: Take a RIGHT turn from here to the barrage over the Ganges 15 kms away then onwards. Bijnor to Kiratpur is 16 kms and from there to Najibabad is 15kms and then another 25 kms to Kotdwara.
STAGE 3: 2 kms out of Doggada there is a T-junction. Take the LEFT turn on the PAURI road (the right turn goes to Lansdowne which is 23 kms from this point ). 15 1/2 kms from this turn one has to take a RIGHT turn for Lansdowne and Oak Grove Inn at Jaiharikhal is just 5.2 kms away.

By Rail (nearest station Kotdwar) – about 8 hours travel (7 hrs train + 1 hr road)
Take a train to Kotdwar railway station (40 km/1 hr from us). The best option is Mussoorie Express (dep: Old Delhi 10:15 pm; arr: Kotdwar 5:20 am) Hire a cab to Lansdowne, should be about Rs 750. We can arrange to pick you up from there.
TIP: Please fill up some fuel at Kotdwara on your way up. It’s cheaper in Uttarakhand than in UP🙂
