Yousmarg

Kashmir

14.5/5(10 Ratings)

Yousmarg Overview

Ranked 7 of 18 sightseeing in Kashmir

From the tiniest of plants to the tallest of peaks, Yousmarg in Kashmir envelopes abundance of beauty. This barely-explored hilly haven is situated at an altitude of about 2,377 metres and lied at about 50 km south of Srinagar in the Badgam district of Jammu and Kashmir. Not being as famous works as an advantage of being away from other crowded commercial tourist places such as Gulmarg and Pahalgam in Kashmir.

Besides the picturesque landscapes, pony-riding is the other recreational activity of this tranquil Marg. Hire a pony and ride through the green grasslands or trek your way to the hills like ‘Trata kutti’ and ‘Sang Safed’ and the beauty keeps charming you at every step! The serene blue-water Nil Nag Lake is situated 4 km downhill from Yousmarg. The best feature of this lake is some parts of it remains frozen throughout the year, making it all the more attractive.

The closest airport to Yousmarg is Srinagar and there are frequent direct bus services from Srinagar to Yousmarg. One can simply enjoy a two-hour drive from Srinagar to Yousmarg and admire the beauty of grassy landscapes, dense forests and snow-clad mountains which lure you into this dreamlike land!

Scenic beauty at Yousmarg

The road at certain places is damaged. Once you reach the place you can go around on your own. Here the pony wallas will not disturb you much. If you are with a group of people you can get a ticket for Rs.5/- per head. Get inside the tourist information centre and enjoy your lunch. Enjoy the scenic beauty.

Peaceful Land

It was awesome visiting Yousmarg, I had been there with my family in July 2014, and had a great experience. One thing that is good particularly with this place is that it is not overcrowded as other places in Kashmir. One feel the peace of mind in this lush green valley, most importantly accommodation was comparatively less expensive with high level of satisfaction in Lake View cottages, particularly the M.D was very friendly who helped us every way possible that too with a phone call. I would strongly recommend Yousmarg as a place to rest in.

Melting of the snow, tree shaded meadows, beautiful

We started from Srinagar early morning because to reach early before crowd reaches. It was amazing view, very long meadow surrounded by tall tree. There is cemented path which helps tourist by not sharing walkway with Ponies and Horses.At end of meadow, stream is flowing which looks like milk. We could not see that colour as we went there in April when snow is melting and water from melting snow is blackish.
