Day 6 -- Katra to Srinagar

We were warned about bad traffic jams on Katra to Srinagar road but nothing could have prepared us for what was to follow.
5:50 AM We were out of the hotel and on our way to Srinagar.
7:40 AM Found our first traffic jam.
Miles long traffic Jam
This was one of the first traffic jam that we encountered that was kilometers long. We were stuck here for almost one hour.

9:15 AM Got into Chenani Nashri Tunnel.

9:20 AM Stopped for breakfast at a place called Karmeel. The last good aloo paratha that we will have on this trip.
The good views from the restaurant are just bonus.

11:32 AM Crossed the place called Ramban
2:40 PM Crossed the place seemed like a truck stop with many restaurants, Could not catch the name. Google marks it as Shaitan Nallah
3:25 PM Stopped in Qazigund for lunch.

3:45 PM Started after lunch.
6:25 PM We arrive at Dal Lake, We had booked a houseboat in Nigeen Lake, so we drive around the Dal Lake to reach that place.
