    @metal_heart I forgot to mention an important thing. There's no authorised FIAT service center after Jammu, you can get in quite a bit of mess if something goes wrong. You might want to call the Jammu FIAT dealer to ask if they've any service provisions in Srinagar, last time I checked they didn't have any but that was more than 8 months back.
    And yes there was some storm coming but it's pretty normal now :D

    Thanks for highlighting that. I'm aware that there are no FASS after Jammu. Hence had requested member's in/around the valley to share details of any competent FNG.

    I'm just hoping for the best.
    Yesterday, read in another forum; that it wont be possible to take the vehicle to Gulmarg & Sonemarg . Sonemarg road access is closed and for Gulmarg, one needs chained tires

    Yes, was safe during the protest, but the returned got delayed by 3 days. Unfortunately, was also stuck in Kashmir (during one the protest). That was bit of a tense experience; but full points to Kashmir Helpline (had saved their number before starting the trip) and local SHO/Police Station.
