For me Pahalgam was something which was unexpected and happened just at the last moment. Here travel was convenient while the route was mesmerising enough to stop car and get some beautiful pictures clicked. The green alpines and swigging ranges would take your heart away. So make sure you prepare your heart for something really exceptional. Here are some of the must things to do here-
Visit the favorite panorama of Indian directors – Betaab Valley is one of the most shot locations of Kashmir where many Hindi movies were picturised. You might also feel familiar to some of the scenes as you have seen them many a times in films. Go around, trek and enjoy the most beautiful valley of Kashmir- it is!
Take a dip into Lidder River- Just kidding! Don’t even try it. The water is freezing and can be life threatening. It’s just good to get some good clicks for your social profiles or for memories. Enjoy watching varieties of fishes in the river in the blueish water which makes it more pleasant to look at.
If you have extra time- Visit Sheshnag lake which is almost 23 km away from Pahalgam. It is an important sight according to Hindu Mythology according to which it is dug by king of snakes- Sheshnag. There are variety of fishes in this lake as well. The lake is inaccessible during peak winters due to snowfall. So if you visiting during summer vacation, hopefully you are going to enjoy the most of it.
