I have read certain reviews that sometimes the route from Jammu is full of traffic jam and sometimes the 8 hour journey takes more than 16hours...
so is this true and is it very frequent/regular affair?? (apart from road blockades due to external factors like bandh or landslides etc).
Is it at all advisable to take the road journey??

It seems all of you have some sort of confusion! The referenced roads are okay and there are heavy traffic on the roads!

@BushiPoP, These are minor aberrations, which happens on narrow roads. There are cases of jams due to heavy snowfall or landslides!

Yes, off course! If you enjoy nature, you must prefer road journey in the Himalayas, that too, during daytime!

The only tip is that start early from Jammu, most probably you will not find any Jam and enjoy the road trip. Chances of road blocking in march 3rd week is quite less.

In case you reach at 9.55 a.m., what I understand you can only start by 11 a.m. from Jammu and you find lots of vehicle movement at that point of time and it will take minimum 10-12 hours to reach Pahalgam due to traffic (Considering you hire a cab for the same)
Anyway if you are too late you can opt to stay at Kanhabal or Anantnag or else even you can find accomodation in Pahalgam even late in night

If BushiPoP has time in hand, he may either stay a night either at Jammu or Patnitop and proceed to Pahalgam next morning.

Good Idea by Prakaant and if you hired a cab and have cushion for a day then better stay at patni top and leave early morning and visit Verinag, Achabal and then reach Pahalgam
