Must see · Valley · Nature / Park
Surrounded by forested hills and snowy peaks, Aru Valley serves as a popular starting point for treks and hikes to the area's glaciers. Grassy meadows rise into rugged foothills, which in turn give way to the beginnings of the might Himalayas. You can rent a car to make transportation easy or, alternatively, join in on a pony ride for a slower-paced journey. Hiking through the river valley appeals to active travelers looking for a bit of exercise--you can recharge afterwards at one of the local restaurants. Put Aru Valley and other Pahalgam attractions into our Pahalgam day trip planning website, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Supposed to be a sanctuary, but there are plastic bottles, wrappers, all sorts of garbage everywhere. Not a pretty sight to see.  more »
