    Dear Vargis Bhai,

    Does it take lot of time to travel from Kargil to Srinagar.

    22nd May - Leh to Kargil, Kargil Night Stay
    23rd May - Kargil to Srinagar, Flight from Srinagar to Delhi at 17:45.
    When should i start from Kargil so that i can reach Srinagar Airport atleast two house before my flight?
    Please advise.

    Thanks,
    -Rakesh

    Rakesh Bhai - Kargil to Srinagar can easily be 7-8 hours and there is also a chance of traffic congestion around Zojila. Ensure that you start from Kargil by 5 in the morning to ensure that you reach well within time.

    Thanks Vargis Bhai,

    Then it is better to go to sonamarg
    22nd May - Leh to Sonamarg, Sonamarg Night Stay
    23rd May - Sonamarg to Srinagar, Flight from Srinagar to Delhi at 17:45.

    What do you suggest.

    Leh to Sonamarg will be very long. Do Leh to Dras. That too is long but doable. Start early from Dras, keep your breaks limited and you should make it to Srinagar by 3 PM.

    Dear Vargis Bhai,

    As per what we are seeing in the newspapers and internet, is it advisable to travel to Leh from srinagar via road i.e. Sonamarg, Kargil from 17th May to 23rd May?

    Another question shall we continue our one day trip to Gulmarg from Srinagar on 16th May?

    Assuming violence may stop as Ramzan begins from 16th/17th may.

    Please advise.

    Thanks,
    -Rakesh

    Rakesh Bhai it is really hard to predict anything about Kashmir. Things can change there by the hour but yes, as you mentioned, Ramzan will start next week onwards so there won't be much of a problem anywhere at this time. I am myself traveling to Kashmir on either 18th or 25th of this month.
