How to go to Kashmir from Dhaka

If you are planning to travel to Kashmir you must travel on one of the first flights international that go from Dhaka towards Delhi Indira Gandhi International Airport or From Dhaka to Kolkata. From there, you can take an international plane towards Jammu and Srinagar Airport. There aren’t any direct flights connecting Kolkata towards Srinagar. This means you need to travel to Delhi. However, if Dhaka-Kolkata-Delhi-Srinagar is broken up in this way, the cost is comparatively less. In addition, If you purchase a ticket at a minimum of one month ahead it is possible to fly at a low cost.

Prior to landing in Srinagar Airport, you can glimpse the white snow shining on the summit of the mountain through windows. It is possible to travel via train or bus to Kolkata and Delhi. The Kolkata train will drop you off in Jammu within 41-45 hours. It is possible to fly to Srinagar in only 15 minutes, from Jammu. You will be able to get a close view of snow-capped mountains. You can see the snow covering the mountain, and also the hugs and hugging in the clouds, like cotton balls.

The road that connects Jammu to Kashmir is expected to be shut down in winter. Jawaharlal Nehru Tunnel, the only means of communication. A long tunnel was constructed near the foot of an altitude of over four thousand feet over sea level. It is often rainy in Kashmir and the Himalayas between March and April. The road is closed. Because of landslides. That is the only way to communicate via land. When the road is shut, Kashmir is made a prisoner, closed. There is another route, that can be used to communicate for 12 months. That is Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road. If that route is maintained, Kashmir may be added via the road that connects Mecca, Medina, Tehran. Nearly 1,200 km from the other side, Kashmir products, such as shawls, and dry fruit can be transported into the harbor of Karachi. People’s movement on this route is now banned and controlled. As Mozaffarabad is now part of Pakistan.

In the middle of this road, it is the Line of Control between India and Pakistan. Indian soldiers, on one hand, Pakistan on the other. This means that you need to travel to Kashmir whether by air or by climbing up mountains relying on the grace of nature and crossing the Jawaharlal Nehru Tunnel. Whatever route you prefer to take either by land or air first, you must obtain a tourist visa through the Indian High Commission.

Estimation cost to travel to Kashmir via land

Between Dhaka To Kolkata, it is estimated to cost between 1800 and 2000 Taka for the Greenline, Shohag, or Shyamoli AC bus. Another option is to save money. This is to travel to the border via a domestic bus. Then, cross the border and get to Kolkata with a local bus or train coming from India. If, for instance, you plan to traverse the border Haridaspur (Benapole-Petrapole) boundary then first, take the bus that runs from Satkhira until Navaran junction. It’s only 20 Tk to get to Benapole via autorickshaw from Navaran. Once you have crossed the frontier to the countries of the opposite, a second autorickshaw will cost just 20 Tk until Bangaon railroad station. Trains connecting Bangaon towards Kolkata are accessible nearly every hour. Tickets are priced between 20-30 Tk.

Once you have crossed your border you will need to change your money into rupees. In this case, it is advisable to be aware of the value of rupees and online currency before you leave. Whatever vehicle you choose to use it is necessary to travel across the border by walking. When crossing the frontier with Bangladesh immigration, you must pay 500 Tk in foreign tax on travel.

You will arrive in Kolkata and take a rest for a few hours. The train departs to Jammu later in the evening. Jammu-Taobi Express. However, be assured! The chances of securing an unused seat are very slim. Indian trains have certain quotas for foreigners.

It is possible to get an area to sit. It is advisable to buy the ticket ahead and get it through an acquaintance in Kolkata. A guide to tourist attractions can assist you in this situation. The cost of a train ticket between Kolkata up to Jammu is approximately Rs. 800-900 for general sleeping class. Its cost in AC class is between 1600 and 1500 rupees. It takes anywhere between 36 and 44 hours to get to Jammu. Minibusses and microbuses that are bound towards Srinagar are available immediately after they are there. The cost of renting will range from 600 to 700 Rs per individual. The trip takes about 8-10 hours. The hotels in Srinagar are accessible all of the time. The hotels located in areas like the Dal Gate area are the most suitable for travelers. The price for a 2-bed room is between 1200 and 1500 rupees dependent on the time of the year. If you wish you could accommodate three people in a room that has two beds.

You can covert taka to rupee from this website.

How do you take a guide?

The majority of travelers from Bangladesh use a guide or travel agent either from Kolkata or Dhaka. Guides located in Dhaka can help with the processing of visas. The sole job of a guide for Kolkata is to purchase train tickets. The remainder of the work doesn’t require the assistance of a guide from Kolkata. Most of the time, a guide from Kolkata is sufficient. However, the interesting part is that there are a few who can provide more information about Kashmiri society. It is recommended that you consult an experienced Kashmiri. If you can communicate with them prior to via the internet, they’ll also be able to take your train tickets from Kashmir.

When to go to Kashmir

Kashmir is essentially an all-weather tourist destination. Kashmir is a four-season destination in terms of geography and climate. Summer (June, July, August), Autumn (September, October, November), Winter (December, January, February), and Spring (March, April, May). In the context of tourism, the seasons are known as Green Valley, Fruit Valley, or Flower Valley. There are four forms of Kashmir with four seasons. If you’re planning to visit Kashmir during winter, you must be well-prepared. Warm clothing, gloves, and boots are essential. If you want to travel by land, it’s best to stay clear of December, January, and March. Since if the road is shut in the middle of the month, you might have to go back.

Therefore, its beauty is unique. Due to the fact that it is off-season prices of everything is significantly less. If you’re planning to go to Kashmir what is the advantage of obtaining the port-in-visa? If you don’t have problems with the budget when traveling to Kashmir and you want to travel comfortably then it is possible to fly direct to Dhaka towards Delhi. If you do this, you’ll reduce time, but the cost will be slightly more. It is also possible to fly from Dhaka in Bangladesh to Kolkata. If you do this, time will be greatly reduced, but it’ll cost a bit more cash. If you’re a budget-conscious traveler, then travel to Kolkata via the highway. In that case, your port is Benapole or Haridaspur. If you’re finding the train or rail journey to be enjoyable, then you could use Darshan or Gede port for train travel to Dhaka up to Kolkata.

Where do you go

If you plan for a trip across the border from Dhaka to Kashmir you should plan at a minimum of 9-10 days. It could require four or five days along the way. You can spend the remaining time doing what you like. Look around at the daily life of those living in close proximity to nature. In general, visitors are taken by various packages like Pahalgam, Gulmarg, Sonomarg and Mughal Gardens, and Hazratbal Mosque in the vicinity of Dal Lake in Srinagar. However the stunning beauty of Dudhpatri Kokarnag Daksum, Synthentop is really more intriguing. Aharbal Falls is also a one-of-a-kind destination. It’s difficult to comprehend the shape of the Himalayas without traveling along the route to Charar-e-Sharif in the Budgam district.

Further up further, you can view Dudhganga. Ular Lake is the largest freshwater lake in South Asia to the north. Another smaller lake located in Ganderbal is known as Manasbal. The look of Manasbal sitting on the summit of the hill is similar to being stunned. And I have to tell intelligent, conscious people that you shouldn’t leave without visiting Kashmir University.

Things to remember

  • There isn’t a monsoon season in Kashmir. But, it could occur at any time. Make sure to carry an umbrella with you.
  • It is important to remember the fact that Kashmir is a ‘low-intensity conflict zone’. It is possible to have a curfew, strike, or bandh at any time. In all of these scenarios, it shouldn’t come as an issue if the site could be closed for a few days within the course of your visit.
  • Make sure you don’t wander out of the hotel after 7 pm. Be sure to carry all necessary documents like passports. As a reassuring fact, Kashmir as with many other destinations for tourists is not likely to be taken advantage of by inflated rates or other services.
