DSC00285Patnitop is a beautiful hill station around 112 kms away from Jammu on the Jammu Srinagar national Highway in India.

It is almost at an altitude of approx 6500 ft above sea level. The river Chenab flows in close proximity to this region.

This place is enveloped by thickly wooded cedar & deodhar forests. In winter ,it is covered with a thick carpet of snow thus making it possible for winter sports such as skiing. The other sport which is common is paragliding.

A very peaceful & serene place.

There are many places of importance nearby  like Sanasar, Nathatop, Manthalai, gaurikund etc. The holy shrine of Mata Vaishnodevi ji is around 75 to 80 kms from Patnitop & the famous Shiv Khori temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is also a must see…
