Welcome to IM!!!

1. Though I have not seen any bus from Katra to Srinagar, but http://www.jksrtc.co.in/index.php/services/bus-services shows bus service between Katra & Srinagar.

2. Do not drop Srinagar.

3. There is a trip report at
Kashmir Trip Report - 11th to 20th August 2012

I find it most useful.

There is no bus between Katra and Srinagar hence will have to come to Jammu to catch bus to Srinagar. It will come cheapest.

But, for fastest a cab could be taken from Katra and reach Srinagar.

Light woolen would be required in the evening, especially for the kid.

Sorry no idea about charges, as have never attempted! It should take around 8 hours from Katra to Srinagar by cab.

As there is no direct connection to Katra either from Srinagar or most probably from Anantnag, you may take bus from Srinagar and ask the driver to drop you at Domel (which is on Srinagar - Jammu Highway) so that you could reach Katra. You would find local vehicle to reach Katra.

Alternatively you may reach Jammu and take any bus to Katra.
