Detailed Road Assessment by UNJLC

 

Distance: 12.7 kilometers

Drive Time: 25 minutes

Assessment: 

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.

Conclusion:

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
