Kinnaur Bus Timetable – Schedule of Bus Service in Kinnaur

by Vargis.Khan

Below is the latest Kinnaur Bus Timetable showing the schedule and frequency of Bus service in Kinnaur valley. If you were planning a trip to Kinnaur by Bus or other means of public transport, then the information below can be of great help in drafting your travel plan.

Please note that all these are ordinary HRTC buses that ply between local towns and villages of Himachal. These are not luxury, deluxe or AC Buses and there is no booking system available. It is like you will catch a local bus in your own city from one destination to another; you reach the spot, board the bus and buy the ticket. Some of the buses travel within Kinnaur itself; while a few others are actually for other destinations, but can be used to reach and explore Kinnaur valley.

The frequency of these buses is still not that great due to which the locals rely a lot on shared taxis as well. If there wasn’t a bus available as per your timing; or you missed a particular bus then you will definitely be able to find a shared cab going your way.
