Betaab Valley, Pahalgam

4.1
#1 of 42 in Wildlife in Jammu and Kashmir
Bordered by lush green meadows and snowcapped mountains, Betaab Valley serves as a base camp for hiking the area's pristine nature. The picturesque valley, covered with dense vegetation of conifers and dotted with colorful huts, shelters many different species of birds. Go horseback riding here or have a picnic on the banks of the jade river that bubbles down from the snowy hills--it's water is so pure the locals use it for drinking. The valley offers numerous photo opportunities, and two nearby lakes are also worth visiting.

  • It’s just a glorified garden with nothing but a film to back up the location. It’s got literally nothing - I would rather recommend aru valley.  more »
  • Nothing spectacular. Too much crowded. Only famous for shooting of movie betaab. Scenic beauty is just like any other meadow of Kashmir.  more »
  • Worth visiting and one should plan to spend atleast 2-3 hours to enjoy the beauty and the serenity of the place. The valley also has a children’s park which can keep them occupied.  more »

  • It is a very nice and peaceful. Place to enjoy time with either family or friends. Scenario of river flowing between the mountains is something which is hard to express. Local food items such as Maggi, snacks and tea are available at places.

  • Went at 5pm but it still looked good. The whole place is covered with snow and it stands out in the evening. I’m sure this will be a great place to visit during spring.
  • Beautiful valley, good for a days visit. The place is named after a bollywood movie Betaab which was Sunny Deol's debut movie. 70% of movie was shot there. And before that this place was not accessible. At first temporary road was built for the set up of this movie. :)
  • Pristine and Amazing place to enjoy snow walk. You get snow boot on rent Rs 50 after bargain. There is a tea stall inside.
