En route to Phalgham in October is dotted with saffron fields, Apple orchards and at some location  shops  selling cricket bats made of Kashmiri willow. Most tourist prefer to make a same day return trip from Srinagar, Spending a day at Phalghan is and travelling up the slopes is however rewarding.

   Chandanwari- the first steps to the shrine of Amarnath. This must be one beautiful trek.

         The Beetab Valley So named after the Sunny Deol-Amritha Singh movie  shot here.

        A ride up on ponies riding through beautiful slopes with pine trees 

     Ends up in a surprisingly flat rich meadow. Called Kashmirs Switzerland, the meadows are extremely                      beautiful.

But the journey downhill on the ponies was quite frightening  with the horse slipping many a time. Again Kudos to Indian Tourist.
