How to Reach Kasauli From Delhi: Fuel Cost, Budget Hotels, and Car Driving Directions

Updated on July 5, 2011

Kasauli is one of the nearest hill stations from Delhi and is located in Himachal Pradesh, India right on your way to Shimla and Chail, which is another exotic tourist friendly place near Delhi.

Car Driving Directions from Delhi to Kasauli

Via road, Kasauli is approximately 300 kilometers from New Delhi and the entire route is a fascinating drive. From Delhi, you have to take NH1 and continue till Ambala crossing through towns like Sonepat, Panipat, Karnal, and Kurukshetra (Pipli). As you reach Ambala 192 km from Delhi, you have to continue straight on NH22 towards Chandigarh, right road going towards flyover goes to Amritsar on NH1. Now continue till Zirakpur on NH22 crossing through Lalru Mandi and Dera Bassi. As you approach Zirakpur, take right on NH22 towards Kalka. Straight goes to Chandigarh on NH21. Now continue on NH22 till Dharampur. As you will approach Dharampur, you will see the signboard indicating to turn left for Kasauli, take this left turn and it’s a beautiful State Highway Road up to Kasauli. Though you can also take the road from Kalka to Kasauli, which is a shorter route, the condition of roads is not so good on this stretch; therefore, I recommend the little longer but better route via Dharampur.


Fuel Cost Calculation from Delhi to Kasauli and Kasauli to Delhi

The distance from Delhi to Kasauli is around 300 kilometers and if you decide to visit all the places of interest in Kasauli including Shimla, it will add another 250 kilometers to the trip so the total kilometers from Delhi to Kasauli and back would be 600 km plus 250 km of local travel, so it comes to around 850 km. Now, let’s calculate petrol and diesel cost. As the fuel prices have been revised in Delhi recently, we will take petrol at 54 km per liter and diesel at 41 km per liter.

Petrol: 850/15 = 57 liters x 54 rupees per liter = 3078

Diesel: 850/18= 47 liters x 41 rupees per liter = 1927

How to Reach Kasauli from Delhi by Air?

Via air, nearest airport to reach Kasauli is at Chandigarh and it is approximately 70 kilometers away from Kasauli. From the Chandigarh airport, one can hire taxis to reach Kasauli.

How to Reach Kasauli from Delhi by Train?

Via train, nearest railway station is located at Kalka only 38 km away from Kasauli. Prepaid taxis from Kalka to Kasauli will cost you around Rs 750 to Rs 1000. To reach Kalka, one can catch the morning Kalka Shatabdi train from Delhi Railway Station.

Accommodation and Hotels in Kasauli

As for stay, Kasauli is a popular destination near Delhi and has plenty of choices ranging from huts and lodges to budget hotels to luxury palaces and resorts. On an average, one can get a decent budget hotel within the range of 3000 per day on dual occupancy basis, so for four people, it will cost you 12,000 INR for 2 nights and 3 days trip.

Food in Kasauli

Food is also available in Kasauli in variety and the cost depends on where you are eating. Still on an average, it will cost around 2000 a day for 4 people excluding liquor, so it comes to around 6000 for 3 days.

Cost of stay, food, and private car travel with fuel comes to around:

Total Budget on Petrol Car: 12000 + 6000 + 3078 = 21078/4 people = 5270 INR per person

Total Budget on Diesel Car: 12000 + 6000 + 1927 = 19927/4 people = 4982 per person

So above was my advice on how to reach Kasauli from Delhi, fuel cost, hotel cost, and private car travel to and fro from Delhi to Kasauli with driving directions and route map. Best of luck and enjoy your trip to Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh, India.
