Mughal Road

The historic Mughal Road, a 84 kms long route rich in cultural significance and rich in history, is tucked away in the center of the picturesque Shopian district. This historic route, which dates to the Mughal era, was essential in connecting the plains of Punjab with the Kashmir Valley. The Mughal Road, which crosses the Peer Panchal Ranges and is a historically significant highway, is extremely significant. This route led through the apple town of Shopian and was once used by the Mughal Emperors, after whom the road is named. The majesty of Mughal caravans traveling along this road is still visible at Shadmarag, where there is a sarai (resting place). One interesting fact about the Mughal Road is that emperors and nobles used to travel along its meandering paths in royal caravans that were lavishly decorated. It is still a well-liked travel destination today for travelers looking for off-the-beaten-path exploration and adventure. Whether you're interested in history, the outdoors, or just want to have an amazing trip, the Mughal Road promises to be a breathtaking, mysterious, and adventurous experience.
