Pahalgam Attractions

One of the most important, and probably the most beautiful as well, Pahalgam Kashmir is a must-visit destination for anybody visiting Kashmir and other nearby destinations. Located at an elevation of 2,470 meters above sea level, Pahalgam is home to some exotic flora and fauna, from the rare and much-valued saffron strands to the huge musk deers. It is a good place to visit with friends, family or solo, since it has something or the other to offer everybody from shopaholics to nature enthusiasts, from thrill-seekers to those seeking peace!

When talking about Pahalgam sightseeing, there are plenty of options available, no matter what your interests are. From rolling meadows that are covered in wildflowers in the summers and soft snow in the winters to placid lakes that invite a round of paddle boating; from views of lofty glaciers to local markets full of little trinkets that visitors take home as warm reminders of a trip that went well.

Pahalgam tourism is all about nature; the places to see here in that regard include the Overa Aru Wildlife Sanctuary, where wildlife can be observed up close and personal. Spot the brown bear, musk deer, wild rabbits, owls, lemurs and birds of various kinds. This used to be hunting grounds for years, for the kings and then the British. It was later turned into a small but beautiful bio reserve in order to protect the swiftly dwindling fauna there. Today, it is a popular spot to spend a few hours in the midst of the wilderness.

On a trip to Pahalgam, travelers love to spend time ensconced in the lap of nature at one of the sublimely beautiful valleys in Pahalgam. Aru Valley and Betaab Valley are where people head to first. Aru Valley is characterized by tall grasslands, thick forests and meandering streams, punctuated by glacial mountains, whereas Betaab Valley, the site of multiple Hindi movies, is characterized by wildflowers and rolling hills till as far as the eyes can see. Lolab Valley, a little far from Pahalgam, is also a good place to visit for feasting the eyes on myriad shades of green.

As a part of any well-planned Pahalgam sightseeing tour, planning the commute within the town is imperative. Pahalgam is full of good commuting options such as ponies, taxis and shared vehicles for tourists and locals. Ponies are available at registered agencies, but taxis and shared vehicles are available at most tourist spots, as well as the main town center.

The town center of Pahalgam is a good place to look for accommodation since it can be treated as the main hub for all sightseeing trips. There are plenty of eateries here that serve authentic Kashmiri cuisine as well as other popular dishes. The local market is also right in the heart of the town, providing easy access to everyday needs as well as souvenirs. Tourists love to splurge on handicrafts on a trip to Pahalgam, from exquisite dongra jewelry to figurines made of walnut wood, from authentic pashmina shawls to Kashmiri kahwa, from delicately woven carpets to traditional, fragrant spices.

For those thinking about Pahalgam as a destination to spend a few days, rest assured, utter contentment will be achieved. It is a peaceful place to spend a couple of days, and take in the bounties of nature all around, before moving on to other places.

    Rahul's 6 days trip to Pahalgam

    I took a 6 days 5 nights package with them from 19th to 24th nov for 39k. Kashmir as a whole was a breathtaking experience and you will be mesmerised by the beauty it holds. Positive from the trip: 1) We got a new driver Showkat from day 3, he was super helpful, understanding and guided us in best
    possible ways which helped us in saving lot of money during activities like slege, skiing, snow bike in gulmarg and pony ride in pahalgam. His guidance helped us in making our trip memorable. 2) House boat Stay in Akbar heritage in nigeen lake was really good. 3) In absence of our initial Travel agent Rabiya, Afreen supported us and was understanding and helped me in organising birthday celebrations for my wife in house boat. Negatives: 1) Even after initial request from Travel agent Rabiya to provide a good driver, we were provided a horrible driver Irfan for initial 2 days who spoiled our experience for first 2 days. He was very rude,always on phone while driving and was always in a hurry to get back to his home. He misguided us in many places which led us miss few of our visit points in our itinerary. 2) Our hotel for Gulmarg stay was Hotel Marina that is remotely located in Drung which is almost 16 kms away from Gulmarg 3) Our hotel for Pahalgam was Hotel Green Orchid is in movera which is also 15kms away from main pahalgam. Overall if I remove the first 2 days of my trip which were spoiled by driver Irfan it was a wonderful trip. Suggestions to travel agent: Kindly communicate clearly to the customer about the hotels that you are providing in gulmarg and phalgam as these are very far away from the actual place. Regards, Rahul

    Neetesh's 7 days trip to Pahalgam

    I had a very promising experience with Talha Travels, I had booked this tour for my parents and family, this was the first timeI had booked with Talha Travels and I need to say it was an amazing experience overrall. I would specially like to thank Ms. Sheeba - she is a very good co-ordinator and she
    used to contact us every day just to make sure all the things were goind good. Hotels, Cab, sightseeing, food, itinerary - all the things which were included were upto the mark, especially the Cab Driver - Mr. Azaz he is a very good person, he will take care of all our problems/queries/requests while in transit. He never makes you feel you're a tourist. I will definitely suggest Talha Travels to all of my friends. This is not a paid review, I genuinely liked the service, as this was my third visit to the beautiful state and the previous 2 tour guides were pathetic.

    All things is good.. But srinagar hotel and srinagar house boat are very bad.. Also there is commitment of hotel in gulmurg but you provide hotel in tanmarg.. It's very bad. Hotels of sri nagar are very bad.. And give rating 0 to srinagar experience.. Remaining experience is good . .
