By plane

Newly upgraded Gaggal Airport (IATA: DHM) in Kangra, 10 km away, has flights from Delhi on Air Deccan (daily via Pathankot) and Jagson Airlines [1] (three times weekly via Kullu). Flights are prone to cancellation due to bad weather or because enough passengers didn't show up, so leave some leeway for onward connections on the way out.

By bus

Most people come to Jaisinghpur by bus. It has good connections with other parts of North India, although the journeys are often slow due to the narrow winding roads in the hills.
