Hi,

Can you please share your experience with JKSRTC bookings?

1) I will be reaching Jammu by Shalimar express. It reaches Jammu at around 5:30am. Is is possible to get tickets for Jammu - Srinagar hitech bus (JKSRTC) directly then and there itself (on the day of travel) or do I have to reserve tickets in advance?

2) Is there any JKSRTC bus from Gulmarg to Pahalgam directly? Or will I have to come to Srinagar to catch the bus to Pahalgam?

3) Also, is it necessary to reserve the bus tickets in advance for Srinagar - Sonmarg, Srinagar - Gulmarg, Gulmarg - Pahalgam (if that exists)? Or will I be in a position to get tickets easily on the day of travel itself?

Thanks

ANIL B> Go via Rajdhani - It leaves DEL at 08:40 PM and arrives JMU at 05:00. there is a bus stand and after every train current bookings are done on first come first serve basis. It has some delux buses as well. In case you are going by the bus, make it sure you are covered as temp. will drop from 8-12 at Jammy and then to 20 C in day to -2 and night maybe upto -6.



2) Is there any JKSRTC bus from Gulmarg to Pahalgam directly? Or will I have to come to Srinagar to catch the bus to Pahalgam?

ANIL B> YES, Gulmarg - SGR - Pahalgam unless you have a group or a package

3) Also, is it necessary to reserve the bus tickets in advance for Srinagar - Sonmarg, Srinagar - Gulmarg, Gulmarg - Pahalgam (if that exists)? Or will I be in a position to get tickets easily on the day of travel itself?

ANIL B> Winter rush is less compared to Summer due to cold. You should get current booking but pls check the road condition befre start.listen to local news at about 7 - 830 PM. Ask the hotel reception for the news timings or you can watch local cable for updates. Trust me, people do not start in winter unless they are sure of road condition as else they get stuck up for days.

Thanks,
Anil Bhan

Hi Anil,

Actually I am going in mid April. So was worried about the reservations.

Thanks for your valuable inputs.

Could you please suggest some budget hotels if you know of any. I had called a couple of them and they said they are already full for that period.

Thanks

yes you can get the bus ticket at railway station , and also there is private coach run from jammu to srinagar
and out side railway station you can get small cab for srinagar drop

2) Is there any JKSRTC bus from Gulmarg to Pahalgam directly? Or will I have to come to Srinagar to catch the bus to Pahalgam?l
No there is no bus run from gulmarg to phaagam and you have to come to srinagar to catch the bus for phalgam

3) Also, is it necessary to reserve the bus tickets in advance for Srinagar - Sonmarg, Srinagar - Gulmarg, Gulmarg - Pahalgam (if that exists)? Or will I be in a position to get tickets easily on the day of travel itself?
its best to use srinagar as a center

Thanks kashmir1. Your inputs always helps. Have seen your reply's to other Kashmir related forums as well.

If you can help me with some budget hotels as well? Just need a clean and decent hotel.

Also, is it worth staying at Gulmarg? I know there are JKSRTC buses that will take me to Gulmarg from Srinagar and return back the same day. Will I be able to do a Gondola trip in that time(upto the second point, if weather permits)?

Thanks

Yes Kashmir1, I am seeing the snowfall in Gulmarg in news almost everyday..

Thanks for the hotel info, will surely look at it!

Could you please reply to the second part of the question if possible?

There are JKSRTC buses that will take me to Gulmarg from Srinagar and return back the same day. How much time do they allow us to spend there? I need at least 4-5hrs in the snow....

Thanks!

Hi Kashmir1,

Hope every things fine in Kashmir with all that snow...!

I wanted to know what facilities one can get in A & B category houseboats? Are they clean, decent and comfortable? Considering the fact that deluxe boats are bit costly.

Thanks!
