Welcome to Jammu & Kashmir -The crown of INDIA and the Northern most state of India . Being in the north ,the state shares its borders with pakistan and china and these neighbours have not proved out to be good for India. pakistan being a mean neighbour always makes attempts of breaking the peace by ceasefire violations , firing mortars and bullets at the Indian villages. The firing from the other side is unprovoked and can happen any time ,so, the Indian forces remain alert every time.
About 35 KM from Jammu is Suchetgarh in RS Pura sector which is a an area where pakistan is not even miles away ,its separated just by a fence. pakistan has been messing with India through this area just to get beat down by the Indian force's retaliation every time.
I had heard about mortar bombardments and firing from pakistan and the border gate where Indian tourists are allowed to enter and see the border from just a few feet away.Some of my friends in college belonged to Suchetgarh itself and the stories about bullet marks on walls and mortar shells in the fields were kind of adventurous and frightening. So, i wanted to go and experience this environment full of tension and adventure and to see where our lands end.
How To Reach: Its the airport road that leadts to RS Pura(so cab can be booked from the jammu airport)(its should cost around RS 600).
Cab can be taken from the railway station also(its should cost around RS 600-700).
Don't relie on the bus ,bcz its crowded , slow ,not frequent and drops only till RS Pura bus stand(Then from there u have to take an auto or a tempo)
Where to stay: Jammu city has lot of hotels which can be booked online beforehand.
TIMING: Make sure that u visit by the afternoon .Don't go too late.
TIME REQUIRED FOR EXPLORING: ONE HOUR
Its morning 10 am and my two buddies came up at a meeting point and we were on the move on our bikes. The road is good and fun to ride . RS Pura from jammu city takes an hour to reach .We had lunch(ALOO NAAN ) at a restaurant at RS Pura market and then again moved ahead towards the border. Just when you are about to reach the border , less and less houses will be seen and Indian posts will be see. The pakistani towers can also be seen from a distance which means that you are close to the destination.
(Suchetgarh)Its a rural area in the middle of the fields where the road ends at the border. We parked the bikes and entered the tourist area which guarded by the BSF.
