Answer: Snuggled in a beautiful valley, this culturally rich town is never too far away from a traveller's dream. Make this dream come true, for reaching Jammu is never a difficult task. Plan your itinerary according to the different travel options, depending on how much time you have and how much you're willing to shell out. Here's a peek into the various options you can choose from:

  • By Air
    Feeling a little indulgent towards travel expenses and want to start your holiday right away? This trip to Jammu then is definitely not going to disappoint you. The nearest airport is at Jammu itself, just about 8 km from the main city centre. The airport sees regular flights from Delhi, with carriers such as Kingfisher Airlines, Indian Airlines and Jet Airways. There are also shorter flights that operate between Jammu, Leh and Srinagar, for those of you who want to go destination-hopping.

The station sees frequent trains from Delhi, Chennai, Pune, Amritsar and even the southernmost Trivandrum station and you can opt for taxis from the station to reach the city centre. Trains tend to be the cheaper alternative to flights, though they may take several more hours to take you to Jammu. But who's complaining when a happy holiday awaits?
