Getting to TARA
TARA (Training and Research Academy) is located in northern India, approximately 500 km (310 miles) above New Delhi, in the town of Sidhbari, within the Kangra district of the state of Himachal Pradesh. We are located at the foothills of the scenic Dhauladhar Range of the Himalayan Mountains, about 9 km (6 miles) away from Dharamsala (locally spelled Dharamshala).
For those traveling from abroad, we recommend that you fly into New Delhi and transit to TARA from there via several options.
It is recommended to book these tickets at least one day in advance. Approximate pricing is as follows:
Both of these train stations are about 3 to 4 hours from TARA by taxi. We can arrange to have you picked up by taxi, which costs approximately 1600 to 2500 rupees. Or, you can take a bus from the Pathankot station to Dharamsala. This bus trip will take about five hours.
