Srinagar city and side trips : A trip report

Great report kshastry, very useful and great photos.


Getting to Srinagar.

There will be a train to Srinagar early next year, it left Delhi yesterday but is experiencing delays. (only joking)

The new line to Srinagar is expected to be completed early next year.

There are flights to Srinagar from Leh (Indian Airlines), Mumbai (Go Air & Air Sahara), Jammu and Delhi (many airlines from Jammu and Delhi).

I will plan my trip to Srinagar once the train starts.
Say from Jammu to Srinagar by train & Srinagar to Jammu by road. Both the journeys will be equally rewarding scenery wise.

Less expensive way is to take JKSRTC bus from Srinagar to Sonmarg (cost Rs.170). At Sonmarg take a shared Sumo ride to Baltal (Rs.50). From Baltal I have heard, a pony would cost Rs.1800-2000 for a return ride to holy cave.

Make sure you have the registered permit with you. Good luck!
