Jammu-Srinagar highway to open for one-way traffic

The strategic Jammu-Srinagar highway is slated to open for one-way traffic on Monday, according to a traffic department official.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

“Traffic moved from Srinagar to Jammu yesterday (Sunday). But many vehicles are yet to cross the Ramsoo-Ramban stretch of the highway,” the official said.

“After these vehicles cross the Ramsoo-Ramban stretch, one-way traffic will be allowed from Jammu to Srinagar today.”

The 300-km long national highway that links the landlocked Kashmir Valley to other regions was restored on February 15 for traffic.
