Keylong does not have an airport of its own. The closest is the Bhuntar Airport in Kullu Manali. The airport is considered to be a challenging one for pilots when it comes to landing as the only runway is set in a valley and surrounded by peaks. There are plans to upgrade the airport to improve connectivity. The airport is connected to Delhi and Chandigarh via Air India Regional and Deccan Charters. Dharamsala's Gaggal Airport is close to Keylong as well. The airport has many flights to Delhi via Air India, Spice Jet, and Jagson Airlines. Jagson Airlines also connect Dharamsala to Chandigarh and Kullu Manali.
Nearest Airport: Situated at a distance of 71 km Kullu Manali's Bhuntar airport is the closest airport to Keylong . The Gaggal Airport in Dharamsala comes a second close, situated 78 km from Keylong.
Safety Suggestion: The route to Keylong is difficult to drive on as the roads with mud, snow and water make the driving worsen.
The Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) has buses plying from Keylong to Delhi, Haridwar, Dharamsala, and Shimla. There are also several buses plying from Manali to Keylong and vice-versa. The first bus leaves as early as 4 AM, followed by others, which leave at 6 AM, 9 AM, and 11 AM. The last bus leaves at 12 PM. Buses are not operational from October through April as the road between Manali and Keylong is closed during this period of the year on account of heavy snowfall and landslides. The Himachal Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (HPTDC) has regular buses to Leh and Manali from July to September.
Journey Suggestion: Keylong is accessible by the road that connects Manali to Leh, and to reach Keylong, one must pass the Rohtang Pass, which could get a little tricky because of the formation of ice. The region experiences heavy snowfall from October to April, and the roads are closed, making the time between May and September the safest time to visit Keylong. For those who wish to drive to Keylong, MUVs are a safer bet and ensuring that an experienced driver is behind the wheel is essential.
As Keylong does not have a railway station, so those who wish to travel to this hill station will have to catch a train to either the station in Amb Andaura, which is 131 km away or the one in Una Himachal, which is a good 142 km away. Amb is connected to Ambala, Delhi, Una, and Nangal Dam. Una Himachal is connected to Delhi, Ambala, Amb, Nangal Dam, and Haridwar.
