The three-hour ride from Baramulla to Banihal passes through some of Jammu and Kashmir’s most beautiful landscapes, from hills covered with snow to wintry trees swaying gently in the wind, before the train enters a 10-kilometre-long tunnel at Banihal.

With heavy snow blocking the main highway in winter, this train is extremely popular among travellers; it cuts travel time, is safer and keeps Kashmir valley connected with the world outside.

Earlier in the week, due to heavy snowfalls in the area, the 136 Km train service between Baramulla-Banihal had been suspended.
