Jammu-Srinagar highway opens for one-way traffic 

Jammu, March 5: The strategic Jammu-Srinagar highway on Tuesday opened for one-way traffic, an official said.

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 will only move from Jammu to Srinagar. All stranded vehicles on the highway were cleared on Monday,” the traffic department official said.

Supplies of essential commodities are routed into the landlocked Kashmir Valley through this 300 km-long highway.

Acute scarcity of the commodities including vegetables, mutton, poultry and petroleum products hit the valley last month due to frequent and long blockades of the highway.

Last week it remained closed due to fresh snowfall and landslides.
