Hello everybody!

This thread is addressed specially to our Kashmir Experts in IM and also to those who had traveled to Patnitop recently.

Our train would reach Jammu Tawai Station at around 12.20 hours.

1. Assuming the train is on time, can we proceed to Patnitop from the Station itself at about, say, 13 hours?
2. If yes, what would be mode of transportation? Can we get public bus service?
3. If not, I believe, the only option would be taxi service, But then would we get share service or we have to hire a full taxi?
4. Would we get public transport from Patnitop to Srinagar next day morning? Or, Share Taxi ? Or, exclusive taxi from Patnitop to Srinagar?
5. What are budget options of accommodation available at Patnitop? A few such contacts would be very much appreciated.
6. As regards ourselves, we are 4 member team, 2 senior citizens and 2 young adults. We are budget travelers.

We would appreciate a quick response on the above quarries. Thanks.

There are chances of train being late, as it generally happens!

Let us presume it would be timely, you may visit taxi stand just opposite railway station and talk to the association people. It is mandatory for them to have night stay at Patnitop if the taxi starts after 2 PM from Jammu.

If you wish to go to Patnitop by bus, then you would have to visit Bus Stand by local city buses, and check whether there is bus for Patnitop. There itself you may book bus for next morning (to travel between Patnitop and Srinagar).

hi, don't know about bus service from jammu to patnitop but if possible you can hire a direct texi to patnitop. i think it will charge 4k to 4.5k (time duration 6-7 hr) from jammu to patnitop and don't forget to see nathatop, its around one and half km from patnitop. in patnitop many hotels its depends on you which one will be suit you. Room starts from 800/- to 4500/-. We had hired a texi from katra to nathatop via patnitop & charges was 3800/-, qualis was the car. Texi driver name is RK KHAJURIA (9086565337, 9906265337), nice guy & has lots of knowledge of jammu & Kashmir. Happy journey

Any bus going towards Srinagar/Pahelgam will take you up to Patnitop.

Sajjad, I do not have any idea about the hotels at patnitop but you will get accommodation there.

I always prefer journey by bus, which starts from Jammu Bus Stand in the morning.

@rockyhuss

Regarding budget accommodation at Patni Top, here is an extract from my travelouge, which contains some info. You may find it useful.

QUOTE

Patni Top:

I stayed at the following Hotel:

Hotel Himalaya View, Kassel Morh, Patni Top, Udhampur, Phone: 01992-287541 Contact: Rishi ( 09906995359)

I paid only 500/- per double bedded room. Excellent property, large room, geyser, wall-to-wall carpet, TV etc., impeccable maintenance, Restaurant attached. The best thing that I liked about this Hotel is its location and the view it offered from the room. Simply marvelous. This is the best Hotel out of the three Hotels that I stayed during Kashmir trip.

At the upper ridge, where the Green Top is located, I had inspected another Hotel; named Hotel Holiday Inn (I don’t think this one is a part of the famous “Holiday Inn” chain of Hotels). It is also an excellent property overlooking the famous Green Top of Pahalgam. Phone: 01992-287570/287591 Mob. 09419163001. Web site: www.holidayinn.co.in. They asked 1000/- per double bedded room. I didn’t bargain as I was happy with my Hotel, which I had already occupied. But, I must say that this is a very good property.

Hope, this helps!

@asishdas

Dada thank you so much for the info, Hotel Himalaya View will be perfect if i can get 1 double bedded room for Rs 1000 considering May is a peak season. I will have to book 2 double bedded room as we are 2 couples and 4 kids. I will call Rishi and try to get the rate for 1 week of May 2013.
I also checked the website for Hotel Holiday inn but the rate seems to be high its around Rs 3090 for semi deluxe room.
Thanks once again I will get back if i need in more advice.

Regards
Sajjad

I don't think we will get a bus after 3 pm from Jammu railway station for patnitop. I will have to book a private Car (Tavera)
The only thing i am not sure is as you mentioned that it is mandatory for them to have night stay at Patnitop if the taxi starts after 2 PM from Jammu?

Actually their rack rate is 1000/- as per their Card. As I was there during off season, and most of hotels were empty at that time, I could bargain hard and got the best room at 500/-. However, since their printed rate is 1000/- only, I find no reason as to why you will not get the D/B room at 1000/-. This notwithstanding, don't forget to bargain! Best of luck!

Most probably there is no bus on the route. You will have to come down to Jammu to take one.

You may utilize the services of railway from next month.
