Yousmarg, Srinagar

4.3
#2 of 11 in Outdoors in Srinagar
Enjoy the lush alpine environment of Yousmarg, a hill where Jesus Christ reportedly stayed for some time. Snowy peaks surround the peaceful, grassy meadows, dotted by tall pines and serene bodies of water. Enjoy a pony trek up into the hills for fantastic photo opportunities and views, or plan to hike some of the trails in the area at your own pace. Refreshingly free of tourists, the area also doesn't offer much in the way of refreshments or food (short of a nearby hotel); bring your own supplies. Put Yousmarg at the forefront of your travel plans using our Srinagar day trip website .

  • This place is one of the best places of Kashmir. Beautiful meadows with green carpet like grass surrounded by dense green forest. It is underrated in general but one should include this in their itinerary. Place is so calm, serene, less crowdy (very very less). I felt like a private land. Even no mobile signal. Leave from Srinagar in the morning, enjoy the pine trees along the way. After reaching just take a walk around, take a horse ride (don't get irritated by the locals). Leave by 2:30pm, weather is quiet unpredictable there.
  • Yusmarg is really beautiful place.. Natural beauty... This place is also good for Tracking. Enjoy the beauty of nature
  • Beautiful place.... Calm n serene.... No cell phone connectivity though but that is kinda good....
  • Yousmarg is a tourist attraction spot in Kashmir division of Jammu and Kashmir state in district Budgam famous for its lush green meadows and Doodh Ganga a fresh water stream. Being a bit less popular among tourists this place is very quite in comparison to Gulmarg and Pahalgam but equally beautiful.
  • A beautiful meadow with lush green forests around happens to be a perfect picnic spot for family and children. Yusmarg also acts as the base for Sunset and Tatakutti peak expeditions the highest points of Pir Panjal Range besides several alpine lakes in the upper reaches like the three beautiful lakes known as Trusar, and Nilnag which is just about an hour trek from yusmarg. One can trek from yusmarg to Dodhpathri also which happens to be the yearly feature of Jammu and Kashmir Mountaineering and hiking club which indeed is the oldest Mountaineering Club of Asia.
