It was a wonderful day I spent in Patnitop (2050mtr Altitude) along with my friends which uncovered the less known beauty of the Jammu region to us. It was a 25 Jan evening around 4pm when we left Jammu to reach Patnitop (110 Km) before too late but instead of getting direct bus to Patnitop we got bus upto Udhampur from where we again got a shared cab tll BATOTE through Chenani-Nashri Tunnel (Dr. Syama Prasad Mookerjee Tunnel, also known as the Syama Tunnel – Longest Road Tunnel). It was raining then, when we reached Batote at 9pm and there was no one to take us 12 Km away upto Patnitop from there. Then we decided to find a stay there in Batote and luckily we found a decent guest house there on the main road. We took a rest there for the night.
Next day morning we woke up around 7 am and got ready till 8 am to catch the first cab to Patnitop. It was a very cloudy morning then , so we reached Patnitop at 9 am and first went to JKTDC restaurant to have breakfast. We had a nice and decent breakfast to enjoy Patnitop with a full stomach. Although Patnitop is a very beautiful hill station of Jammu, the weather that day was an awesome experience for us. After breakfast we had some fun in the snow by doing some adventure activities in main park and strolled around while enjoying the weather and view of nearby snow covered peaks. We were enjoying every bit of the moment there.
In the afternoon after having lunch and wasting a lot of deciding on the next course of action at 3 pm we went to Natha Top (2800 m Altitude) 12 km away from Patnitop. We were happy as it was looking like a highly awesome place to be from Patnitop but after 5 km we got stuck in traffic jam due to which no vehicle was going to NathaTop. It was very late for us as we needed to reach back to Jammu on the same day so it was kind of disappointing then for us but we knew whatever we felt there it was also a magical and special experience which was worth our short and spontaneous trip. That day we reached back to Jammu at midnight right after leaving Natha Top at midnight after lots of struggle but we made it safe and happy.
