Wondrous ways throughout Kashmir & this is a man made marvel . 9 kms taking 20 to 30 minutes to cross , it is a thrilling experience to drive through.
Take the sharp right bend bend to Patnitop as the boards on exit do not specify directions to NH44!. Besides one is in awe of seeing daylight after this long under -mountains PatniTop tunnel that one can miss that turn , like we did .

From patnitop, while returning to Jammu we took Batot route so that we can pass through tunnel. It is marvelous and can be described as 8th wonder of the world created by our engineers. It is 9 KM long. It reduced more than one hour journey time & 40-50 KM distance from Jammu to Shrinagar. While visiting that area, one should pass through this tunnel.

This is Asia's Biggest Tunnel located at Chenani which is on NH 44. This is connecting Jammu with Srinagar and after this tunnel comes into operation, travel time between Jammu & Srinagar is reduced by 2 hours. this is 9.28 km in length and with fully integrated tunnel control. no one is allowed to stop vehicle inside tunnel. If any one stops inside immediately signal goes to control system. There 2 separate emergency exits for this tunnel on both sides, which is unique in India.

While going to Jammu Airport from Patnitop, we specially went backwards towards Ramban side and entered the Tunnel to go to Jammu side. The Tunnel was inaugurated by Our Hon. Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi on 2 April 2017. It was worth and proud moment of travelling through the Tunnel as it is constructed by Indians. Tunnel is built with world class technology with fully integrated tunnel system. The Tunnel is sixth in world with a transverse ventilation system which checks the Oxygen Level inside the tunnel and after every intervals pumps Oxygen for fresh air inside tunnel. This is All weather, Water and Snow Proof Tunnel bypasses Patnitop, Kud and Batote which used to block Highway by Snowfall and Avalanche in Winter. The Tunnel have two lanes & have parallel escape tunnel. The Tunnel is Longest in India approx 9 KM in length and built at altitude of 4,000 feet in difficult terrain. Tunnel reduces travelling time between Jammu and Srinagar by 30 km & time is cut by two hours.
