Hill Station - Pahalgam

Pahalgam MountainsAt an altitude of 2,130m and about 96-km from Srinagar, Pahalgam is probably the most popular hill resort in the Kashmir valley. Pahalgam means a shepherds' village.
The mountain town along the bank of River Liddar is known for its trout, both rainbow and brown and is the starting point of many a trek, excursions to glaciers, shrines and other scenic places.
It is the base for several treks in the region, and for the annual pilgrimage to the cave-shrine of Amarnath. The surroundings are ideal and allow for relaxation and leisure in the true spirit of a traditional hill station holiday.
