#3 of 9 in Things to do in Pahalgam
The launching point of a popular religious trek for devotees and visitors alike, Chandanwari features a range of opportunities for discovering the scenic nature of the surrounding valley. Hiking your way up to the mountain valley puts you in great position to begin the famed Amarnath Yatra trek through the rugged landscape. You'll find rocky slopes, scattered trees, and the roiling waters of the Sheeshnag River as you explore the area. Alternatively, kick back with a picnic and soak in the alpine views. Given the right season, you can even join in on a sled ride, an activity relished by many of the valley's visitors.
