Hey Devi, The main thing in Kashmir is road trips (Srinagar->Pahalgam and Srinagar -> Gulmarg). Both places have their own charm. A trip to Kashmir is incomplete without visiting Gulmarg and Pahalgam. Spend at least one night at the houseboat in Dal Lake in Srinagar. Happy travelling!!!
Actually, there are several places to visit in Pahalgam. Aru valley A must visit and picture perfect place in Pahalgam. 12km away from the town of Pahalgam, it was mostly 30mins journey to Aru Valley. A breathtaking beauty between the way Pahalgam and Aru Valley. The place is surrounded by meadows, peaks, a whisper of pine and valley and a clear blue canopy over the head.
Chandanwari You can go to chandanwari from Aru Valley which is situated a distance of 16km away from the town of Pahalgam. Chandanwari is famous for Amarnath Yatra which begins by the end of June or July and continues until the end of August. The distance between Amarnath and Chandanwari is 32km. Betab Valley which is located on the way to Chandanwari. This place got the name from the Bollywood movie ‘Betab’ that was shot there. Betaab valley is one of the perfect places of mother nature where you can enjoy the heavenly pleasure. Good Luck!!
Betab Valley and snowy hills nears Betab valley (Pehlgam) are the best memories of my Kashmir trip. But still one day is enough for Pehlgam if you start your day in morning and pre plan the day. You will need a local vehicle and local driver to visit these places our taxi was not allowed to go there.(2013) Take snow wear only if you are willing to visit that snow place.No need of any extra cloths at Betab valley.
