Yousmarg, Srinagar

4.2
#2 of 7 in Outdoors in Srinagar
Enjoy the lush alpine environment of Yousmarg, a hill where Jesus Christ reportedly stayed for some time. Snowy peaks surround the peaceful, grassy meadows, dotted by tall pines and serene bodies of water. Enjoy a pony trek up into the hills for fantastic photo opportunities and views, or plan to hike some of the trails in the area at your own pace. Refreshingly free of tourists, the area also doesn't offer much in the way of refreshments or food (short of a nearby hotel); bring your own supplies. Put Yousmarg at the forefront of your travel plans using our Srinagar day trip website .

  • Beautiful place dood ganga and that environment is great perfect romantic place
  • It is an amazing place to visit. I was mesmerised by the meadows with the green carpet of grass on them. Pine trees engulfing the land gives super look to this place. You all must visit here. There is a river known as DoodhGanga whose water is as milk. Best place for camping, trekking, relaxing and enjoying here with all your friends and family. The Heart Catching "water storage" or dam will put you in joy with its beauty.
  • A very nice place to visit near pulwama and Budgam. Famous for its lake and speedy doodhganga stream dense forest with pine trees along with grassy carpet like meadow.

Where to stay in Srinagar

The moderate climate of Srinagar has made it a popular destination for locals during the summer, hence its good range of accommodations. Hotels basic and luxury, great and small, jostle for position alongside the main waterways, and across from the city's many historic gardens. However, staying on a houseboat on Dal Lake remains the most iconic way to ejoy your Srinagar holiday, with options ranging from budget to high-end. If you don't fancy spending your nights on the water, the palatial scale of the main tourist area makes it one of the more relaxing and popular areas to stay in. More cost-effective accommodations sit on the side streets of the residential districts further to the north.
