Dangerous experience but lovable

Jan 9, 2015
Mode of Transport: Taxi

The route was such that below the road, there was river valley and above the road high hills with long trees. View of the road is similar like snake crawling but only one way. During our visit they are extending the road for two way which is also the national highway, Jawahar tunnel was superb but if something happens to our vehicle then entire traffic has to be stopped for getting repaired. Sharp edge corners created life risk journey over the road.

Fabulous journey from Pahelgam to Katra through Mughal Road

Aug 7, 2015
Mode of Transport: Taxi

Our journey from Pahelgam to Katra was very adventurous and fabulous. We started our journey from Pahelgam to Katra early in the morning. But due to one side closing off National Highway, our travel manager decided to change our route as we have to reach Katra by evening from where our Vaishno Devi Yatra was scheduled at night.

Actually, the closing off of the high road then gifted an opportunity and also a lifetime achievement to us that we had to change our route and go though the Mughal Road, at the Poonch and Rajouli District. The road is 84 km (Approx. ) long. The road was used by Mughal Emperors. One side of the road is deep Pahari Khad and other side is surrounded by mountain ranges with full of snow. We had gone through the tunnel of ice. Sunny morning, clear blue sky and white frost all together created the beautiful nature as well as wonderful atmosphere and we felt that we have entered in the snow world, the real heaven, the place of God. Our mind was full of peace and happiness then.

Pathetic roads

Oct 25, 2015
Mode of Transport: Taxi

The travel from Pahalgam to Katra was extremely tiresome and daunting. The roads are not in good condition and have very dangerous turns. Less or no public toilets further add to the woes of travellers especially ladies.
It took us a total of 9 hours to reach Katra, and we have promised ourselves that we shall never travel to Katra from the state of Kashmir by road.
