The road is a two lane road with all weather connectivity but may get interrupted during extreme snow fall. Generally the connectivity gets broken near Jawahar Tunnel. The region from Jammu to Banihal is hilly after which you get to see the majestic Kashmir valley for the first time. But after entering the valley slowly you start getting the feel of any other routine part of country. But the apple orchids are a must visit and during peak season the price of apple can fall as low as to rs 15 a kg. Even bad looking apples are so juicy that you will forget any damn taste of the world. Also the ride from Srinagar to Sonamarg is highly recommended along the banks of river sind. Mindblowing.
