How To Reach Jammu and Kashmir

One of the major draws of coming to Jammu and Kashmir is the time spent on the road itself. High-altitude crossings like Zojila and Khardungla beckon adventurers from all corners of India. On the other hand, a flight to Leh or Srinagar allows spectacular panoramic views of the higher Himalayas. The state of Jammu and Kashmir is accessible by road, rail, and air. Travellers can easily book flights, trains, taxis, or buses to reach the northernmost state in India. The state has three major regions: Jammu, Kashmir Valley, and Ladakh.

Each region has at least one principal city where major modes of interstate transport are available for domestic and international visitors. So, if you are planning a holiday to the land of high passes and surreal beauty, here are the following means of transport to reach Jammu and Kashmir:

By Air

Srinagar International Airport (SXR), also known as Sheikh-ul-Alam Airport, and Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport (IXL) in Leh are the major airports in Jammu and Kashmir state. The airport in Srinagar is connected with major cities in India including Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Bangalore. The airport in Leh has direct flights to and from Delhi, Mumbai, and Srinagar. Taxi rentals and private shuttles are available at both airports in Jammu and Kashmir.

Furthermore, Jammu Aiport or Jammu Civil Enclave handles domestic flights from major urban centres in India.

By Train

Jammu Tawi, located in the state’s winter capital, is the busiest railway station in Jammu and Kashmir. It serves as the northern terminal of major trains connecting the city with the rest of India. Regular express trains from Jammu to Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Trivandrum run efficiently.

The picturesque section between Banihal and Baramulla of Jammu–Baramulla railway line passes through several towns in Kashmir Valley. It is an excellent alternative for those wanting to take the tracks not often taken.

By Road

Jammu and Srinagar, seasonal capitals of the state can be reached throughout the year by road. Jammu is served by a network of state and national highways. If you’re wondering about how to reach Kashmir Valley by road, follow the NH1(A) that passes through the city of Jammu to Srinagar in Kashmir Valley. The highway continues to the east before terminating at Leh in Ladakh region. NH1 is a major and vital highway which handles the primary traffic coming in and out of the region. Government and private operators run buses and taxis between Jammu, Srinagar, and Leh.

The Jawahar Tunnel, 2.8 kilometres in length, connects Jammu with Kashmir Valley. The 3,528-m-high mountain pass Zoji La carries the Srinagar-Leh highway extending into Ladakh. The 474-km-long Leh-Manali Highway is another major road with serving the Ladakh region. Both Srinagar-Leh and Leh-Manali highways remain vulnerable to weather conditions in winter as the snowfall blocks the road access.

    • Trip to Kashmir

      Memorable experience . Young Bombay boat house experience was excellent. Boat owners are very lovable. Mr.Omar family gave me excellent service. Close to gate number 9. With Driver experience was average only. To be improved by the way of listening their guests. Totally Unforgettable experience. Jammu is quite ok. but Srinagar is full of military deployment. But lifestyle is normal. Not to worry to visit Srinagar.

      Nice trip overall. But would have been better if hidden charges were removed. Tur Tuk is an amazing place to be in. Please stay in Tur Tuk atleast for a day if you are visiting Ladakh.

      Peacock travels is a well managed and professional company but in my case they didn't provided the well located hotels and traveller friendly driver. Hotels were well maintained but very far from visiting spot. We although knew about it bcz our budget was on lower side. But biggest let down was the driver who was a bore and he was trying various tricks that will make us cancel our plan or change itinerary. Yusmarg was a miss citing security reasons. Still I do want to recommend peacock for this vacation. They might be best of the lot in Srinagar. But next time I will plan this tour by my own. Many, apart from the immense beauty of nature, I loved the people who were welcoming tourist. They were so down to earth and caring.

    • Trip to Ladakh

      Was a very pleasant and well managed trio.Amazing India Routes managed the travel very well. The driver provided was really good. One issue where the travel iteniary had to be reaccomodated due to tensions in Kashmir was not well handled by Travel Triangle initially. But after contacting multiple times they finally agreed to modify the iteniary. Times where such unforseable circumstances need to be addressed show how reliable the customer service are. Apart from this 1 issue was a smooth experience.

      Kashmir is a great place. The scenic beauty with its natural essence is something that you cannot experience elsewhere. The hosts are one of the best and value for money is something you can never get anywhere else in the globe Sonmarg and Gulmarg both were breathtaking
