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.

Srinagar-Pahalgam-Betaab Valley-Srinagar

Now that was our itinerary for a day!!!

Pahalgam is an enchanting place approx 96 kms away from Srinagar. This was our one day bike tour, one of the most exciting and romantic bike trips we have ever had. We prefer bike trips because it makes the journey more thrilling, exciting and sometimes light on our wallet too 🙂

Gigantic and lush green valley, flowing streams along the road, colorful houses located at a small distance from the stream, beautiful flowers and plants, as we kept moving towards Pahalgam, bountiful nature made us more envious!!

Betaab Valley Flowers

Dazzling white flowers captured somewhere between Pahalgam and Betaab Valley near Srinagar, Kashmir. They categorize as white flowers for us, all of them seemingly similar but still different from each other just as we humans, we all are human beings but totally different person from one another
