About Betaab Valley

91%
voted as clean

Betaab Valley, situated just 7 km up on Pahalgam, has got its name from Sunny Deol’s movie, Betaab, which was shot extensively in this area. Surrounded by snow-covered mountain peaks and dense pine and deodar forests, this valley is the mouth of River Sheshnag. There is a beautiful garden in the valley, with a bridge to cross the river. The Pahalgam Development Authority has proposed to develop this valley as a beautiful holidaying spot and is thus, carrying out several construction activities in the region.

"Mesmerized by the view"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Betaab can be reached by booking a taxi from Pahalgam. The valley is surrounded by mountains with cold water flowing. The beauty here will make you feel close to the nature. You can take lot of scenic pictures here. You can enjoy sunlight and make yourself much more comfortable. A must visit place in Pahalgam.

"Beautiful valley with spectacular view"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
It is located between Pahalgam and Chandanwari, 11 Km from Pahalgam. I have been there along with my family on 23rd April 2014 and everywhere greenery. It is called Betaab Valley due to one Sunny Deol's bollywood movie 'Betaab' shoot here.

It 'a beautiful valley A meadow, crossed by a stream, well-maintained, between high mountains and beautiful forests, where you enter by paying a pittance. It frequented by vacationers who stop for walks and picnics, happy to see for yourself the setting for many films and serials where they recited their favorite celebrities. The atmosphere is happy, as in so many other beautiful places of Kashmir. Given 4 star for its beauty, authenticity and for the extraordinary hospitality of its inhabitants.

Tip - Generally hotel arranged day tour for Beetab, Aru and Chandanwadi. However, I suggest from my experience avoid Aru and Chandanwari there is nothing spectacular to see, spare more time in Beetab instead and enjoy picnic with your family. The air was so nice and fresh. The view was spectacular. Highly recommended for families with kids.

"Splendid - Excellent - Outstanding experience"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
This is truly heaven on earth. The River Lidder flowing through very silently across a well manicured big park with outstanding hill views. You can even view the Chandanwari Peaks if lucky and the beauty of this place is soaked only if you stay here for 1-2 hours and keep glancing the views and locations all around.

"A major attraction"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
It's the major tourist attraction in Pahalgam, went there in June, 15. It's a widespread valley, well maintained by the local pda.
Pros- scenic view of the river, nice ice cream spot in the middle.
Cons- it was quite hot at that point of time (afternoon), had to look for shade under trees and hefty entry fee.

Awesome place to visit. This place is just 5mins visit from Pahalgam of Kashmir. A cool breeze flowing smoothly makes you feel fresh along the sounds of flowing river.

It is in Pahalgam, it is the best and beautiful place to visit in Pahalgam. Flow of river inside the garden is excellent. But only the entry fees of Rs 100/-per adult is high.

"Lovely location"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 21, 2015
Don't be put off by the fact that the location is named after a movie that was made in the 80s. It is still a fresh location which primarily consists of a huge meadow. The children picnicking there, the surrounding hills and the bubbling brook makes it a scenic location.
