Rail

Train routes from cities and towns end in Jammu and the track to Srinagar is under construction. One can opt for travel by the State Transport Buses or Sumo jeeps which run regularly outside the Jammu Railway Station and bus stand which is 2 to 3 kms from the station.

Road

Travel to Srinagar on National Highway 1A by private car from Delhi (860km, 548 miles) and Jammu (260km, 165 miles) is, ideally, a two-day drive and can be a unique experience climbing winding roads through the breathtaking Pir Panjal range. There are several places en route developed for the convenience of the motorist—Jajjar Kotli, Kud, Patnitop, Batote, Ramban, Banihal and Qazi Gund, all have tourist bungalows and provisions for meals, snacks, petrol pumps and car repair.

One can also book a taxi which costs Rs [2,100 by Sumo jeep and Rs 2,400] by car. If you are traveling alone from Jammu, one can share a taxi for approximately Rs 460 per head in a car taxi and Rs 300 per head in a Sumo jeep from the Jammu Tourist Reception Centre.

Deluxe coaches are operated by Jammu & Kashmir SRTC and take about 11 hours to Srinagar.
