A couple of hours drive from Udhampur, at the end of which a stunning hilltop scene awaits. The drive is quite steep and one needs to be careful. If you go towards the end of winters you’ll find snow capped trees and roads that make it look straight out of a movie scene. Warm clothing is a must, though I can’t answer for hotels since I stayed in an army accomodation myself (completely satisfied-defence families are especially encouraged to visit it once). You might want to take snow boots to get a grip while walking down the slopes, but for mountain lovers Patnitop proves to be an absolute delight.
- Night driving is a strict no no.Being a national highway, its bustling with trucks and one needs to be careful. Also because the route hasd been carved out on a hill, the turns are sharp and you need to be extra careful about them.
A peaceful tourist hotspot with picturesque surroundings, almost 112 km away from Jammu. Home to beautiful meadows and forests. Breathtaking views of the Chenab basin and the Pir Panjal range.
No direct connectivity. Travellers planning to visit the town via airways or railways have to get down at Jammu airport and then take a bus or a direct taxi to the city.
Sparsely populated, Patnitop is a great place for people looking to relax. It is also a good starting place for amateur trekkers and skiers.
