Transportation

Kashmir is the northernmost state of India and is connected transportwith rest of the country by roadways, railways (services being provided in selected areas of Kashmir) and airways. The valley is bordered by the Gilgit Mountains in the north, Kargil in the east and Jammu in the south.

Travellers can reach Kashmir by road or in a flight. At Srinagar city, there is one airport with international and domestic terminals. However, international air services are available from few countries only. Domestic flights from popular cities of India can be boarded to reach Kashmir.

By road, Kashmir is connected with other north Indian states by national highway, NH1A. The road distance from Delhi (the national capital) to Srinagar is about 900 kms. The distance from Jammu to Srinagar is around 300 kms. The means of transportation to reach Srinagar from Delhi include deluxe inter-state bus services, air-conditioned private coaches also famous as Volvos and sleeper coaches. Smaller tempo travellers, sumo cars and Qualis can also be availed from Delhi. The buses can be boarded near Red Fort.

The railway service for Kashmir is still not completely operational. Travellers sometimes reach Jammu by train and from there board a taxi. We would suggest taking the road from Jammu for the beautiful scenery, the roads along the mountains and deep gorges, but the road trip is taxing.

Yet, there is one ride you must never miss in Srinagar – the boat ride.It is more exciting to explore the interiors of the Dal and Nigin Lake. However, for safety we help tourists by providing services of expert guides.
