Yousmarg, Srinagar
(4.2/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A nice drive from Srinagar. A beautiful place ....calm and serene. Lot of apple orchids, almond gardens on the way. 
  • It is a offbeat place to visit, in my opinion there is no requirement of night stay there, u can just go there and enjoy its beauty and come back to srinagar easily 
  • Yousmarg is totally different terrain. Its a meadow and not exactly a valley. You will find lots of pine trees and apple trees. There is a lake too there. Really a nice and different place.

  • Excellent scenic beauty, with quietness and strong aroma of flowers in air. Lake, Meadow, Dargah, Dense Forest, Streams and horse riding best features. Fresh Wild strawberry and Wild Cherry to be fetched from forest. Least tourist population.
  • We visited Yusmarg after Doodhpathri and it felt like more of the same, just worse. There is not a moment of peace to be had, since the locals keep pestering you to take a horse ride.
  • Silence, pine, meadow, springs. What more one can aspect?? Actually day trekking place, have many trekking routes.
  • Véry charming
  • Very good scenery and environment
