Jammu and Kashmir is a great place to visit. We found the car trip from Jammu to Srinagar memorable. The road half way is risky cutting across the mountains, besides Tawi River. The long pine trees near Patnitop area seem to touch the sky. The view of Baghlihar Dam across Chenab from the Highway is ecstatic. After some half way the path is more flat on the onset of the valley. We started from afternoon around 1 Pm and reached Srinagar around 10 Pm.

Kashmir port is a WORST agency, we (11 families) have ever experienced. In return journey (Srinagar to Jammu) the agent left us on road at Quazigund, saying that the Highway was blocked for one way on 24-5-2015. Instead of arranging any alternate (like small vehicles) he simply left us carelessly and no agent accompanied us except bus driver and cleaner, who were help less in arranging alternate means. The proprietor of Kashmir Port Mr. Sameem did not respond to our phone calls during the critical time. We arranged vehicles on our own, but still we missed our train from Jammu to Delhi. Again arranged our own vehicles from Jammu to Delhi, making all of us ill-health and our pockets became empty. So NEVER opt for KASHMIR PORT. It is a DIRTY agency.

Going by car will make your trip cooler as you can see the mountain scenery in between and click photos of that. Yes travelling by car will take 10 hours to reach so start your travelling early morning like 5 so that you can enjoy natural beauty of valley.

I actually lost my way after reaching Jammu. I mistakenly took a bus to Katra ( base Camp for Vaishno Devi), somehow managed to get a bus to Udhampur, and from that took a shared taxi to Srinagar. The road is very scenic and properly maintained. There are a lot of travellers who do motor cycle trips on that route too.

I was not able to get enough of the market from the road, and knew that to fully absorb this scenery, I needed to be on the same platform as them. It was actually difficult to get a shikara at that time of day, and when I did find one, the boatman repeatedly informed me, that hardly many...more »
