National Highway 1 (NH 1) is a National Highway in North India that connects the Kashmir valley to Leh. The western terminal is in Uri in Jammu & Kashmir and the eastern terminal is in Leh. Stretches of NH 1 run through some extremely treacherous terrain and shut-offs because of avalanches or landslides are common in Winter months.[1] An all-weather alternate road project that will cut short the distance between the two cities by 82 km (51 mi) and the travel time by two-thirds is currently being considered[2][3]

National Highways Development Project[edit]

Approximately 534 km (332 mi)stretch of NH 1 from Uri to Leh is a part of the North-South Corridor.[4]
