Level : Easy
Duration : 3 Days*
Start Date : Apr 01, 2014
End Date : Mar 31, 2015
Location : Kashmir
Highest Point :
 
Srinagar is crowded with hordes of tourist anytime of the year now. But if you want to meet Jannat in its true form, then leave Srinagar behind and take the drive through Anantnag to be greeted by the Lidder River at Pehalgam. But don’t stop! Jannat has just started unfolding. Take the steep ascent to enter the immaculate Aru Valley. The Lidder River following you halfway up leaves you completely out of breath, before disappearing out of sight, allowing you to absorb the heaven above. Just kill that engine and step out of the care and soak in the beauty. Better still just give the freshest workout to those sneakers. Lush green deodar forest as far as you can see is mind numbing. The paradise has just begun. If you are not already spellbound, then the road leading on is bound to magenetise you to keep going up.
