About Betaab Valley

93%
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.

"Fascinating Betaab Valley" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
I visited Betaab Valley recently with my family. The views of Betaab Valley are mesmerising. I would highly recommend it. You can easily plan a picnic day if sun is shining bright. You must carry your best camera as the views are magnificent. The valley is surrounded by ice capped mountains with river flowing across the valley. I would say best is plan your whole day to stay in the valley.

"Picturesque place" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Betaab Valley is approximately 15 km drive from the main town of Pahalgam and is named so after the bollywood movie Betaab was shot here years back.

The place is beautiful, it has an entry fee of Rs. 100/- per head. The place has beautiful stretch of meadows and a river runs right through it. Surrounded by snow capped mountains, it provides splendid views. The place is clean.

Really enjoyed strolling through this place. One can just chill with friends and family. You can even carry your food and can have a sort of picnic spot. Clicked a lot of pictures.

There are a lot of vendors inside the park selling shawls, dress material and strolls. They sell good stuff but you need to really bargain very hard. Overall - nice picturesque place to relax. Enjoyed it.

"Magical Place"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The first thing to know that the it got the name Betaab due to the shooting of Sunny Deol movie BETAAB. The ride upto Betaab Valley is nice and there is such nice scenery on either side of the road. The main attraction of the valley is the stream that flows through it and the ultra-clear really cold water it has :). Do give it a visit.

"Lovely picnic spot"

  • 5.0/7

Place where one can sit and relax on the lawns, drink in the scenery, click lovely photographs. Please take care of kids on the wooden bridge across the rivulet as there was a fatality just before we arrived on the location. Gardens are well-maintained.

"Awesome and beautiful panoramic views"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jan 28, 2016
The valley got its name from the Sunny Deol-Amrita Singh hit debut film Betaab. Nice place for kids to play around, milky white waterfalls for all to enjoy. Surrounded by hills and flow of water makes the place memorable. Betaab Valley is a very popular touristic destination. Betaab Valley is also a favourite campsite of travellers as it also serves as a base camp for trekking and further exploration of the mountains.

"Beautiful valley with spectacular view"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Dec 6, 2015
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 Nov 9, 2015
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.
