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.
