    This temple is on a hill and can be seen from every place of Bhaderwah.

    Temple has rooms for stay also. But due to restrictions after Article 370, nobody was allowed to stay as temporary measure.
    There were lots of Army personnel inside town and at every important place of Bhaderwah, including Chandi Mata Temple, Vasuki Nag Temple and Gupt Ganga.
    I had to identify myself before Army man at many places.

    After that I came back to Hotel Ashapati View and washed my bike. This hotel is run by a family who stayed behind hotel. Entire family is very helpful and cooperative. I talked to owner and his son about my ride and general situation there after removal of Article 370. I also used their phone to talk with my family.

    This was my homely dinner.

    Day 5

    Bhaderwah to Kishtwar

    Total 151 Kms


    Ride time 8.45 AM to 4 PM


    Today my plan was to visit Jai Valley and then ride to Kishtwar. It was a short ride and hence I was not in hurry to start early.

    The backyard of Hotel Ashapati View had lots of Apple Trees. Owner was kind enough to allow me to pluck fresh apples from trees.

    There were lots of apples fallen from trees and damaging. I learned that apples are sold at Rs.20 a kg at Bhaderwah.

    I washed my bike and loaded luggage.

    I also clicked picture with owner of hotel and his son for memory.

    It was a tourist spot, but I could found only grazing horses.

    There was a sign board of Jai Valley/ Ghati also.

    [​IMG]


    It was a green valley with 3-4 houses.

    Jai Valley is a beautiful place with water stream and lots of greenery.

    Due to disturbances and restrictions in J&K, there were NO tourists at Jai Valley at that time.

    [​IMG]


    Valley was looking like a movie set with mountains, temple & few houses.


    [​IMG]


    Jai Valley is a picturesque valley, located at a distance of 32 kilometers from Bhaderwah

    The valley is divided into two by the Jai Nallah.

    [​IMG]


    The valley is surrounded by coniferous forests on all sides.
