The Kangra Valley Railway, Himachal Pradesh

The Kangra Valley Narrow Gauge Railway lies in the sub-Himalayan region and covers a distance of 164 kms from Pathankot to Jogindernagar. Commissioned in 1929, with the primary purpose of connecting the broad-gauge railhead at Pathankot to the Shanan Power Works at Jogindernagar, the line is a wonderful way of sampling Kangra’s beauty. While the Kalka Shimla Line has its tunnels, the Kangra Valley Railway has its bridges – there are 971 that span wide rivers or small streams. En-route, the line displays all the beauty that Kangra is justly famous for – from the waters of the huge inland lake, Maharana Pratap Sagar to the majesty of the snow-covered Dhauladhar mountains.
