Phalgham



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.

Amazing pictures. It seems you climbed down the Betab Valley. When we visited, Chandanwari had snow fall and the area was covered with snow barring the steps leading to Amarnath.
