That's Gool - a small town in Ramban District of Jammu and Kashmir, surrounded by the mighty Himalayas and perfectly rests at an elevation of 1421 m above the sea level.
The vast lush green meadows and the gushing river are its inherent assets. It also has a famous ancient site called ‘Gora-Gali’, where ruins of giant sculptures and horses can be seen. It is believed to be craved by Pandavas out of monolithic stones. Due to several insurgencies in the past and lack of interest from the locals, this area could never make it to the tourist's map of India, and remained as a hidden gem for decades.
How to reach?
Gool is 52km from Ramban, 160km from Jammu and about 190km from Srinagar.
The route from Ramban to Gool is quite picturesque, where the mighty Chenab River keeps accompanying you on one side with the lofty mountains embracing you in their lap.
Where to stay?
Gool is in the stage of transition from a village to a town, so you will find very few hotels in the area. Gool Residency is one hotel where you can enjoy a comfortable stay with food of your choice and if you are in mood of some adventure, you can safely camp near Dagantop area and breathe wildly in rhythm with nature.
