Betaab Valley Memories

Agog heart at ‘Betaab Valley’

Betaab Valley, lies few kilometers ahead of Pahalgam in Srinagar. The bike ride to Betaab Valley was part of our 5 days trip to Srinagar. The flawless green mountains, pristine Lidder river, archaic houses and rustic villages made such a impression on our hearts!!

I have shared details of Betaab Valley earlier too, this post is dedicated to fond memories of this fascinating and picturesque valley.



We began our bike ride from Srinagar in the morning, the roads were still quite and clouds serene. There was some checking at few points, the army is stationed at almost every place in Srinagar but they don’t trouble tourists. The road is breathtaking as the Srinagar is located in the valley, fortunately there’s straight road & hence it saves time 🙂 Lidder river keeps moving along as if it’s leading the way, we crossed many hamlets on route & stopped at few points to interact with the locals & have the legendary ‘Kahwa’.

We discovered lot of beautiful gardens and interesting points, took beautiful shots, rested a bit & kept on moving. We touched Pahalgam in about 2.5 hours (~96 kms from Srinagar) kept moving & found some solace at Betaab Valley.

The valley is so engaging that one could spend whole day here looking at myriad things happening around and basking in the nature.


Happy Exploring with Untraveled Routes ♥♥

  2. I have been to Srinagar thrice as a kid in my summer vacations, since my dad was stationed there and it indeed is a beautiful place charu though it doesn’t feel like we are India.

    • That must have been quite a experience, given the unstable condition of Srinagar, it’s difficult to travel often let alone working there!! Where is your Dad now? It is so gorgeous, it aches my heart to see how communism plagues it. Thank you for checking out the post.

      • Yes it was. My dad is enjoying his retired life now. Yes it’s really tragic that we lost such a beautiful place to terrorism. Pleasures all mine. It is a beautiful post.
