Betaab Valley, Pahalgam

(4.1/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Betaab Valley near Pahalgam in Kashmir can be described in just a few words...Heaven on Earth! Such is the natural beauty of this place! We went there in the month of March, when the entire valley was covered in knee deep snow, with the semi frozen Lidder river flowing through it. The vast stretches of snow covered fields surrounded by lofty snow capped Himalayan peaks gave it an ethereal beauty which is a feast for the eyes. The valley got it's name from the Hindi movie Betaab, starring Sunny Deol. Major portion of the film was picturized in this heavenly valley.
  • Betaab Valley is the ultimate place in Kashmir where you enjoy the best scenic view and the beautiful valleys! Its named after the famous film BETAAB in the 80S where most of the film was shot! In fact they have retained some of the sets that was created in the film and have maintained that for tourist attraction! Enjoy the lush grass area, beautiful gardens that are maintained very well...Ultimate place for Honeymooners for taking some memorable pics!!
  • It is very very beautiful place to visit which was the set for very famous movie betaab but very big and it is more scenic and beautiful from top on the way back to or fro from chandanwari and very picture perfect but inside since for everything it's a lot of walking and only limited view you can skip to go inside and cover this place from top view
  • It's really heaven on earth. Betaab valley is situated on the bank of Lidder river at a distance of 12 km. approximately from Pahalgam in Anantnag distt. in India's famous northern state J&K. The valley got its name the block buster debut movie (Betaab) of Sunny Deol and Amrita Singh. It's a very beautiful place.
  • loved the place. beautiful majestic valley with green pastures and river Lidder running through its veins. you can sit here for hours enjoying the beauty of nature.
