Jammu: Patnitop Like Never Before

Jammu: Patnitop Like Never Before

Situated at the very top of a densely wooded hill above the Chenab River gorge, Patnitop has long been Jammu's most famous hill station. At 6,640 ft, it is the highest point along the Jammu-Srinagar highway and one of the few places in low-lying Jammu that receives snowfall in winter.

Cool and bracing even at the height of summer, it is besieged by day-trippers hurrying through the Jammu-Katra-Patnitop circuit, only to depart at sunset. To do so, however, is to overlook its charms, for just a few hundred yards away from Patnitop's touristy hotel strip are stunning views of the Pir Panjal range, quiet grassy meadows and hillsides of deodar and kail.
