Day 1

Day 1 - Reached Delhi in the evening. So I had the whole night to myself until my friends joined me the next day. I stayed in Hotel Vaishnav in old delhi. Kept my luggage took a shower and headed straight to Chandni chowk.

Day 2

Day 2 - On day 2 I had a lot of time. My brother Sumit and his friends Kartik and Shaheer from Bangalore would reach by 13:00. Harshad from Pune would reach by 11:00. On day 2 I covered Paranthe wali gali and food street of Jama Masjid.

Later on Day 2, we got out Scorpio from Zoomcar. And headed to Amritsar.

Enroute Amritsar, we stopped at a small Dhaba in Murthal and had the best makke di roti and sarso da saag of our lives. Later we reached amritsar at around 23:00 and headed straight to the holy Golden Temple

Day 3

Day 3 - Amritsar to patnitop -

Today we had to cover a lot of ground. Amritsar to patnitop which would be around 300 km. Patnitop will be our first stop in J&K. Before reaching patnitop, we had to pass the mighty Chenani Nashri Tunnel.

We reached patnitop late at night and it was totally foggy. Visibility was surely less than 5 metres. Shahi santoor was the hotel where we rested for the night and undoubtedly it had one of the best view to wake up to.

Day 4

Day 4 - On day 4 we had to reach Srinagar. We said goodbye to our amazing host Khan Sahab and headed out. The condition of the road worsened for the first time in our journey so far.
