Gurez is a valley located deep in the snow-capped mountains. Due to heavy snowfall, the valley remains cut off for around six months in a year. The road to the Gurez Valley is broken and difficult, but the stunning scenery and the majestic Habba Khatoon peak make it completely worth the pain. Special permission is required to tread into this valley that can be obtained from the police station at Bandipur, which is on the way to Gurez.Location: Around 123km from Srinagar, through the Bandipura and Razdhan PassHow To Get Here: Get a shared taxi for Rs 250 from SrinagarWhere To Stay: At the Jammu and Kashmir Tourism Development Corporation hotel in Dawar or tents in GurezTulail Valley

About Bandipora

We were on the arduous journey to Gurez, a valley tucked deep in the Bandipore district of J&K, the turquoise blue waters of the Kishenganga river bisecting it between India and Pakistan. The inhabitants of the valley belong to the Shina-speaking Dard tribe, a mountainous people who have spent centuries in the Himalayas; a larger section of the tribe now living in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan. The isolation has been a boon, which has preserved the cultural heritage of the place.
