Pahalgam Tourism & Travel Guide

Popularly known as the valley of shepherds, Pahalgam is almost 95 km away from Srinagar. The small hamlet offers breathtaking views of highland pastures engulfing thickly-wooded pine forests and Himalayan ranges adorned with snow. The confluence of Lidder River and the Sheshnag Lake is a major leisure spot for tourists and a perfect picnic spot. The Pahalgam to Chandanwati route is popular to head to the world-famous Amarnath caves. Thousands of colourful camps hitched for pilgrims makes for a beautiful sight though the necessity to keep the environment clean becomes clearer when you look around! Winter sports such as skiing and sledging also pull tourists to a two-day long snow festival held in Pahalgam. The city lures adventure junkies with its wide range of treks and rafting on the Lidder. If you plan to stay here, you should have no problems in finding pocket-friendly options.
