Many of you might have heard about Srinagar, Gulmarg and Sonmarg in Jammu & Kashmir, but I think none of you have ever heard about Bhaderwah. That's why they call it the unexplored heaven on earth.
Bhaderwah is a small town in the Doda district of Jammu Division in the State of Jammu and Kashmir, India. The Bhaderwah valley is located in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains, 80 km from Batote. The town is known for its natural and environmental beauty and is popularly called as "Mini Kashmir/Chota Kashmir". read more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhaderwah.
1. December to March: Winter Season- Heavy snowfall and freezing temperates with mercury dripping down in negatives.
2. April to May: Spring Season- Beautiful lush green fields of Rice and Barley. Colorful Cheery Blossom and a soothing weather. You can still see snow in mountains.
3. June to August: Summer Season- Fruits and Flowers everywhere with slightly warm temperatures ranging from 20-29 degrees Celsius.
4. September to November: Autumn - Full on Sharukh khan's Mohabbatein feels. haha..
Personally I think the best season to visit Bhaderwah is the Spring season because you get the best of the both worlds. I mean you can enjoy the green fields as well as snow covered mountains.
For hotels/home stays you can check Goibibo, Yatra and Tripadvisor. There are only a few good hotels available.
One week in Bhaderwah and it will cost you around 10k for hotel and food. You can find local shops and restaurant almost everywhere. Local people are extremely helpful and friendly too.
