Plan was to go only till Udhampur or Banihal but it was some energy that came in all of us and we pushed straight to Sonmarg.
Hi All, we had started our road trip from Delhi on 19th Aug at 5:45 PM and as per the plan we had reached Udhampur at 6 AM on 20th Aug. Although we had planned to halt at Banihal / Ramban but considering weather and road conditions we planned to skip this and go beyond so that we dont get stuck around Ramban area. But before we could have moved a surprise came in that Chenani Narshni tunnel was closed as there few landslides around Ramban. So we took an alternate route via Patni top and reached the end point of tunnel. There we came to know that road to Ramban and Banihal is open. This added excitement to our journey and with this in no time we crossed Banihal and by passed Srinagar. Thanks to our Columbus (our Ecosport) and my family who gave full support and without much fatigue we reached Sonmarg in evening around 7:45 PM . Next day our plan was to reach Kargil which will be covered in next part . Thanks.
Great captures. Great going. I took a stop at Patnitop. But 26 hrs drive..whoaaa! I know the fatigue. During my return, I did Kargil to Delhi in 28 hrs in May'2016. I was hallucinating after Jammu. But it was fun and thrilling.
