About Aru

Aru is 12 kms away from Pahalgam. One can easily find a cab from the taxi stand at Pahalgam and reach Aru.Leave Pahalgam early in the morning for Aru. Aru village is a small beautiful village located to the North of Pahalgam, famous for its scenic beauty and snow capped mountains, this place has been a location for many Bollywood films including the recent Bajrangi Bhaijaan.Aru is less crowded and away from the crowd of Pahalgam. The valley is so beautiful that you'd want to make a home in it. The gushing turquoise waters of Lidder river flowing with grace through the valley will transport you into another world. Trek upto a place called "Green Top" which lies on the mountain further up to Aru Village. It is a 2 hour trek from Aru village and one of the most beautiful places in Pahalgam area. One can see the whole Aru valley from here. You'll be greeted by shepherds throughout the trek grazing their sheep. There are a number of natural springs throughout the trek and one of the best experiences for me was to drink water from one these springs. You will easily spot them on the way and if not, ask a shepherd and he will be happy to show you one.Spend the day at the Green Top with the nature. Remember to carry water and some food with you if you're planning to stay there for the whole day. This place is secluded and only once in a while you'll find shepherds and sheep passing along your way.Return to Aru by evening and stay for the night.There's a hotel run by the Tourist Department of Jammu & Kashmir Government with nominal room tariff.
