National Highway 1 (NH 1) in India runs between the union territories
of Jammu & Kashmir
. It comprises parts of old NH1A
The number 1 indicates, under the new numbering system,
that it is the northernmost East-West highway in India.
NH 1 passes from Uri
, Zoji La
. The route passes through high mountain passes and most of the road clings to mountainsides. The NH is the lifeline of the Ladakh
region. An alternative route, the Leh-Manali Highway
, exists but it climbs over even higher mountain passes. NH 1 passes near the India-Pakistan border.
The Jammu and Kashmir State Road Transport Corporation
(JKSRTC) operates regular Deluxe and Ordinary bus services between Srinagar
on this route with an overnight halt at Kargil
. Taxis (cars and jeeps) are also available at Srinagar for the journey.
