Pavan

National Highway 1 (NH1) connects Leh with Srinagar. The distance of 475km can be covered in one and a half days. The road however passes through the insurgency hit areas of Kargil and Kashmir. Though Indian Army has practically fortified the road, a very feeble chance of Pakistani barrage or militant strike remains.

The route is Leh - Lemayuru - Kargil - Drass - Sonamarg - Srinagar

Time your travel properly. One needs to cross Zojilla Pass between the towns of Drass and Sonamarg. This pass is closed for traffic between 4p.m. and 4a.m. There are also some time restrictions on civilian traffic in and out of Kargil. Stay updated.

Jammu Kashmir State Road Transport Corporation buses ply on this route.
