If you're looking for a peaceful and quiet place to relax your life then Patnitop is the most suitable place for you. The tiny and beautiful hill station is located 112 kms from Jammu, the city of ancient temples. This famous hill resort is perched on a beautiful plateau, at an altitude of 2024 metres across which the Jammu-Srinagar Highway passes. Enveloped by thickly wooded forests, Patnitop offers beautiful picnic spots, peaceful walks and breathtaking views of the mountainscape of the Chenab basin. In winter, the resort is generally covered with a thick mantle of snow thus providing opportunities for snow games like skiing.
Patnitop is the best developed tourist spot of Jammu and is second to none in its natural charm, climate, pine forests and lush green cover. The occupancy of the huts and Dak Bungalow remains full in summer months which speak of volumes about its popularity.
From Patnitop, you can visit Sanasar which resembles Patnitop a bit. The only difference is that Sanasar is situated on a higher location. While on your way to Sanasar, Mathatop is another place worth your visit. From Mathatop you can get a clear view of Patnitop and this place will offer you an excellent opportunity for trekking.
