If you are a ‘bollywood-movie’ freak, then you must be definitely aware of Pahalgam’s one of the most famous landmarks- Betaab Valley. For those who don’t know, here comes the surprise!
Betaab Valley is named after one of the most popular hindi films of 80s, Betaab, starring Amrita Singh (ex-wifey of Saif Ali Khan) and Sunny Deol (who needs an introduction ;)). Some of the scenes were shot in this beautiful valley which is almost 15km from Pahalgam. Reaching here isn’t tough as you can get private cabs from Pahalgam as well as Srinagar.
The ideal time to pay visit to director’s paradise is between Oct-April. You can visit here most probably anytime of the day. Sunsets are more beautiful than sunrise but keeping out after dark can be risky as the area is still impacted by militancy. If you are a nature lover, you can spend your entire day in the valley and get some fabulous pictures clicked.
Another secret which makes it a worth to go place is its geography. The valley is situated between Pir Panjal range and Zanskar. Interestingly, this part of Kashmir was ruled by some of the wisest Mughal emperors.
For those who love trekking, Betaab valley is definitely a heaven. This is one of the passing landmark if you are going towards Amarnath. In fact, you can also trek to Betaab Valley starting from Pahalgam, which is not just comfortable but easy and would make you less tired, keep you safe and you can also enjoy the beautiful surroundings at your own ease.
So before you prepare itinerary for Kashmir trip, make sure you check out all the information posted on blogs and chalk out the best trip at heaven.
