The Mughal Imperial Road meanders through diverse topographies -  the rugged, snowy passes of the Pir Panjal mountain range, conifer forests, rolling hills, orchards, agricultural fields, and scrublands  -  offering magnificent vistas of the natural heritage that combine with the cultural heritage assets along the route, to create a breathtaking, dynamic landscape.
