Valley Nature / Park
Surrounded by forested hills and snowy peaks, Aru Valley serves as a popular starting point for treks and hikes to the area's glaciers. Grassy meadows rise into rugged foothills, which in turn give way to the beginnings of the might Himalayas. You can rent a car to make transportation easy or, alternatively, join in on a pony ride for a slower-paced journey. Hiking through the river valley appeals to active travelers looking for a bit of exercise--you can recharge afterwards at one of the local restaurants. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Aru Valley by using our Pahalgam itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Pahalgam

Take a look close to the central lake for some of the main accommodations in Pahalgam. With views over the water, and in close proximity to the main transport routes and commercial area of the hill station, the hotels and guesthouses here provide a varying range of amenities, but they all represent convenient and comfortable options. Heading out of town to the north, the main road reveals a number of other retreat hotels and resorts, while the river running parallel to the west has a good set of secluded guesthouses and hotels along its banks.
