Yousmarg, Srinagar

4.3
#2 of 17 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 .

  • Better than many other places in Kashmir because of low tourist crowd. Good place to track or to have a picnic with family and friends in meadows.
  • Yusmarg is a tourist attraction in central Kashmir’s Budgam district. This place is a real bliss but due to official apathy infrastructure is really poor. You cannot find some good restaurants here. If you are someone who loves the wilderness then this place is a right option for you. Close to Yusmarg is Nilnag a beautiful lake amidst the tall pine trees. If you love angling you are going to have a good time here. A local shopkeeper close to this lake is very humble all the basic food items are available there. Unfortunately tourism department is yet to make arrangements for overnight stay. Overall it is a place you should mark on your map if you are planning a trip to Kashmir.
  • This place is really beautiful and it's my favorite one, you should must pay a visit to this place.
  • Its a scenic and beautiful place. Good for trekking and long walks. Couldnt find any good restaurant nearby. Good place if you are planning to stay with family for a few days or for honeymooners
