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.

    Pune

    Sushant's 7 days trip to Pahalgam

    Feedback for Hotel - Overall hotel experience was really good and food quality of breakfast and dinner was also good Feedback for Cab & Driver - Car allocated was non ac Etios and was very comfortable. Cab driver - Cab driver Mr Faiz Mohammad. His driving was good and safe. But his attitude was was
    very rude and insulting. Whenever we didn't purchased from shop he could have got commission then he expressed his anger then and there only. On many occasions he earned did earn commission which we don't have any problem but it not possible to purchase everytime from shop where he could earn good money. Last two days Srinagar local side seeing was planned but he denied that and said only last day is planned as local side seeing . Inspite of paying for cab and driver we had to walk on one occasion and take an autorickshaw on another occasion. So very disappointed with his attitude and behavior. At Letpora he insulted me and tried threated my family friend from the kesar trader from were he was taking us to buy kesar and dry fruits. I had complaint this this to Mr Mukesh and Mr. Sajjid but his attitude and behavior never changed. He had personal tie-up with Raja Dhaba and on multiple occasion forced us to have lunch over there. Services of Travel Agent - Overall support and help of travel agent is satisfactory. Whenever required Mr Mukesh helped us. Leaving the driver's attitude and rude behavior aside overall entire trip is memorable.

    Sumit's 3 days trip to Pahalgam

    First of all I would like to thank Ms. Bazila from RTT travels in co-ordinating and providing the right suggestion for the trip and keeping it within the budget. She has been very polite throughout the conversation and has also been checking on any issues/concerns faced during the trip. However,
    there are a few suggestions or improvements that I foresee. The cab driver provided to us was not at all helpful. As this was our first trip to Kashmir and we were not aware of the places and customs and was expecting him to help us through those however his attitude was not at all good. as per booking cab was supposed to be available for 3 days however he did not turn up for third day and sent someone else. He was saying that on third day he got the direction that he only is supposed to drop us to the airport however as per our discussion with agent third day was for the local sight scene and then drop to airport. I think that to the unkown places you should have a good driver who can suggest you the right places to visit in stipulated time.

    Balakrishnan S

    Chennai

    Balakrishnan's 5 days trip to Pahalgam

    The hotel suggestions and arrangements were good along with excellent food. The cab driver arranged by the agent was very friendly and good. Some things could be improved in these following aspects: 1. The hotel often needed re-iteration of the discussed things to be reminded to them. Like for exam
    ple if some service was accepted previously, this had to be manually conveyed by us again to the hotel(which should have been done by the trip organiser) 2. The travel and trip experience could have been made better if additional trip sigh-seeing expenses info could b provided. for example in each sigh-seeing place in kashmir requires either local car or horse ride which is not included in any itinerary . Thus providing their cost estimate could help visitors to plan trips accordingly.
