Getting around

Buses 1 and 3 run from Dera Adda Chowk to Nawan Shahr Chowk (Rs 3), Nishtar Chowk (Rs 3), Kutchery Chowk (Rs 3), Eidgah Mosque (Rs 5) and finally the main bus stand (Rs 8). Others run from Ghanta Garh Chowk to Dera Adda Chowk. Fixed route tongas run from Aziz Hotel Chowk to Dera Adda Chowk and then on to Bohar and Haram Gates for Rs 7 to Rs 9 per ticket.

An autorickshaw from the main train station costs around Rs 40 to Dera Adda Chowk and Rs 65 to the fort. To hire an autorickshaw for a half/full day costs about Rs 600/800, which should include the waiting time (foreigners are usually quoted much higher rates so don’t be shy to haggle). Autorickshaws are much quicker and more convenient than the buses.
