"Nice place but not worth the money"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Oct 12, 2015
Betaab Valley is a nice sightseeing place. It has got its name from the movie Betaab as it's one song was shot there. The only thing is that it is not really worth the money you have to pay. First of all taxi charges Rs. 800 for 8 seater Car from the nearest taxi stand and then there is an entry fees as well at the spot.

Peaceful and a worthy place for meditation. The cool breeze is very nice. You can enjoy as the weather changes and the rippling of water. Share the peace with mother nature. You will really love and enjoy this place.

"Amazing place at Pahalgam"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Jul 5, 2015
Betaab Valley is located in Pahalgam. The rapid stream flowing through the valley, the garden, the green mountains around the places make it a great picturesque place. This is named after shooting place of Sunny deol film Betaab. This valley is actually located between mountains of Chandanwari & Pahalgam. You could spend hours just feeling with nature.
