The Kangra Valley Narrow Gauge Railway lies in the sub-Himalayan region and covers a distance of 164 km from Pathankot to Jogindernagar. Commissioned in 1929, with the primary purpose of connecting the broad-gauge railhead at Pathankot to the Shanan Power Works at Jogindernagar,the line is a wonderful way of sampling Kangra's beauty. While the Kalka Shimla Line has its tunnels, the Kangra Valley Railway has its bridges there are 971 that span wide rivers or small streams. Enroute, the line displays all the beauty that Kangra is justly famous for - from the waters of the huge inland lake, the Maharana Pratap Sagar to the majesty of the snow-covered Dhauladhar mountains.
