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.

    Khansaad's 7 days trip to Pahalgam

    I was always in a dilemma whether a travel agency would provide me a good service because a lot of my friends and family faced false commitments and misleading claims. Despite of that I chose going on a trip with travel triangle and to my surprise they provided me exemplary service and everything was well planned and executed. In a nutshell i would say “ Paisa vasool” experience I would also like to mention and give my special thanks to Team Zipgo Travels, Aaliya Madam And Aijaz Sir Best part of my trip was in Gulmarg where I enjoyed a number of snow sporting activities

    Kumar's 7 days trip to Pahalgam

    The trip was a lifetime experience and the Kashmiri people are most welcoming to the tourists. All the activities done during the trip was very enjoyable and memorable, some adventurous too. Hotels were top notch expect for the stay in Phalgam at phalgam retreat. Driver shahid was very friendly and guided us very well at all stages of the journey. Travel Agent Aasif from Holiday Planner was very helpful and was always approachable at any time of the day. He made sure that all the arrangements were taken care of as per our needs. Will do recommend him for any other trips in the future.

    Nikhil's 8 days trip to Pahalgam

    The travel home organized our trip to Kashmir well Hotels, Driver + Guide, and the plan was really good. We were safe there. Kashmir is a tricky place, when people come to know you are a tourist they will try to loots you. (So do a ground survey about the price or place /activity/things you do) I recommend spending more time at Gulmarg and can avoid Sonamarg (we got cheated there) Do shop only from Local market (lal chowk) not from 'showrooms' in the tourist locations.
