Yousmarg, Srinagar

(190+ reviews on the web)
Scenic Drive Geologic Formation
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. To visit Yousmarg and get the most from your holiday in Srinagar, create itinerary details personal to you using our Srinagar trip builder.

  • It's a serene place with not many people around, as you see in other tourist places across Kashmir. Lush green meadows -surrounded by dense forests. Yusmarg Development Authority has made proper arrangements for tourists. One can stay there for many days.
  • I have no words to describe yousmarg I just wanna be there again and again and again...... My favourite destination in kashmir... Yusmarg or Yousmarg is a hill station in the western part of Kashmir Valley in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. It is situated 47 km south of Srinagar the capital of the state. Geography; Yusmarg in Kashmiri means The Meadow of Jesus.[2] It is believed by the natives that Jesus came to Kashmir and stayed at Yusmarg for some time.[3] It is an alpine valley covered with snow clad mountains and the meadows of Pine and Fir, It lies 13 km south of Charari Sharief a town of Budgam district of Jammu and Kashmir. It is situated at the bank of Doodganga River which is a tributary of Jehlum River. It is located in the Pir Panjal peaks, a sub range of Himalaya. The Peaks are: the Sunset Peak and the Tatakooti Peak for which the expeditions lead from this hill station. It lies at an altitude of 2396 metres above sea level.[4] Tourism; A trek of 4 km leads to a small lake. Another 10 km trek leads to the frozen lake in Sang-e-Safed valley, which is mostly covered by ice even during the summer. Other tourist activities include horse riding, fishing, skiing during winter and photography.[5] Access; Yusmarg is easily from Srinagar or Srinagar Airport (SXR),[6] the capital of Jammu and Kashmir, 47 km drive in under 2 hours by car or bus leads through Charari Sharief town.[7]During winter the road gets sometimes closed due to snowfall and remains cut off from the kashmir Valley for weeks.
