How to reach Warwan Valley?
Warwan Valley is just about 68 km from Kishtwar and 150 km from Srinagar. It can be reached from Kishtwar via Sinthan top or from Srinagar via Anantnag. The route from Srinagar is via Kokernag (Anantnag) to Voile, crossing Mati-Gauran and then through the roads which are rightly called the Death Valley due to scary curves and uncertain landslides. But it is in this Death Valley that one can find a fresh breath of life again, and soak in the serenity.
Through Death Valley, one reaches the Mighty Margan Top which is a ridge that separates the Kishtwar district from Anantnag and Jammu division from Kashmir. This Margan Top becomes the most preferred location for nomads in summer and also has alpine lakes (Chohernag 1 and Chohernag 2). After 1.5 hours of drive from Margan top, one can lay their eyes on this paradise, calmly embraced by the mighty mountains and Warwan river romancing through the very center of it.
You’ll see wooden houses scattered here and there, clear water streams flowing down the valley, the people in their traditional attires, and women carrying woods on their heads - definitely, coming from the urban chaos, all of these might seem very unrealistic yet pleasing.
