Our Jammu & Kashmir family holiday packages have transportation facilities along with pick and drop from/at the airport and railway station. Below is the detailed description of reaching Kashmir by air, train, bus, taxi, and bike.
The fastest way of reaching Kashmir is by air. Board a flight to Srinagar from the major cities of the country. The Sheikh Ul Alam International Airport has direct and connecting regular flights. From Srinagar airport, you can take a taxi to reach the desired destination.
Jammu also has its own airport which is well connected to the other parts of India. Travellers can even board a flight to Jammu and then take a taxi or JKSRTC bus to reach Srinagar.
Board a train to Jammu as Kashmir doesn’t have its railway station. Jammu Tawi railway station is located at a distance of 270 km from Srinagar and operates several trains from Delhi. From Jammu railway station, you can take a taxi or bus to reach Srinagar covering a duration of 7-8 hours.
When planning a trip to Kashmir by bus, board a bus operated by JKSRTC which also connects Jammu to neighbouring cities by National Highway 1 & 44.
