Located at a distance of 19 Km from Muzaffarabad, it is a gateway to Neelum valley and can be the first journey break on the way. A mini zoo and a fish hatchery have turned the place into a site of diversions. AJK Tourism Department has constructed a Tourist Rest House here, which is very popular among tourists. Patikka, is first spot after Muzaffarabad to Neelum Valley. Two Restaurants on river side are famous among tourists in Patikka known as Marco polo Restaurant Patikka and Green Valley Restaurant Patikka. Both are good for Desi Foods. There is not fast food in Neelum Valley unfortunately except Mr. Cod Muzaffarabad.
