Various airlines fly to Srinagar from New Delhi,
Chandigarh, Amritsar, Jammu and there are flights
operating from Srinagar to Leh and back. Flights are more
frequent during the summer Tourist Season; at that time
there will probably be several flights a day between Delhi
and Srinagar. Some services are direct, while others
operate via Chandigarh, Amritsar or Jammu. Flight time
duration from Delhi on the direct flights is about an hour
and ten minutes.
Srinagar's railhead is Jammu, which in turn is connected
to all parts of the country, including Delhi, Kolkata,
Pune, Mumbai and Kanyakumari. The distance is about 876-km
from Delhi to Srinagar although almost everybody coming up
from Delhi, or other Indian cities, by land will come
through Jammu from where the buses run daily to Srinagar.
Srinagar is connected by an all weather road to Jammu,
which in turn is connected to many parts of North India.
One can catch buses from Delhi but people making the trip
by road should take up the route via Chandigarh, Amritsar
or from the Himachal Pradesh hill stations.
