Detailed Road Assessment by UNJLC
Distance: 12.7 kilometers
Drive Time: 25 minutes
This is an unpaved, rough one-lane road referred to locally as "Defense Road." Like the main Neelum Valley road across the river, this route suffers from lack of maintenance. Landslides also remain a high risk due to the lack of vegetation on the south-facing slope of the valley.
Due to the potential danger in this route, it is advised to travel in convoy with a minimal following distance of 100 meters and to check in regularly with the Muzaffarabad Radio Room
