Pahalgam Travel Guide

Overview

Pristine forest, carpet of lush green grass and the gurgling of the river Lidder that is Pahalgam for you! Situated at an altitude of 2130 meters, this quaint town in the state of Jammu and Kashmir is heaven on earth. Pahalgam, for many tourists, is also the base camp for the much popular Amarnath yatra. For the outgoing and daredevils there is white water rafting and trekking during summers and skiing during winters. A number of trekking routes like the Amarnath yatra, Aru Chandanwari and Kolahoi Glacier to name a few can be enjoyed. A family picnic beside the gushing waters of the snow fed Lidder on a summer day is a must. And so is a visit to the Mamal Shiva temple. Another major attraction of Pahalgam is its 9-Hole golf course. Imagine a game or two at an altitude of 2400 meters and that too for free! Enjoy an array of ambrosial Kashmiri cuisine at any of the many restaurants in Pahalgam. For shopaholics there is a variety of delicately embroidered shawls, phirans, carpets, wall hangings and tea cozies to choose from.
