Yousmarg, located at an elevation of 7861 feet above sea level, is an unusual place that should be on the bucket list of every traveler. The area is famous for having some of the highest peaks in the Pir Panjal Mountain Range, including Sunset Peak (4746 m) and Tattakutti (4725 m). The region’s most notable attractions include Doodh Ganga, Pakharpora Shrine, Nilnag Lake, Sang-e-Safed, Tosa Maidan, and Charari Sharief. Surrounded by tranquil Himalayan peaks and pine and fir valleys, Yusmarg is well-known as a hiker’s paradise. To go to Yusmarg, you must first travel to Srinagar, which is not all that difficult. If you are traveling by car, you can take either the main Jammu-Srinagar route or the Mughal Road through Shopian to reach Srinagar. The Jammu-Srinagar highway is the best maintained and busiest, yet it is also the most congested. The Mughal Road is the more picturesque of the two, with little traffic.
When you arrive in Srinagar, you may take a road trip to Yusmarg, which is a 2- to 3-hour journey spanning roughly 50 kilometers. In addition to its natural beauty, Yusmarg is also rich in cultural heritage. The valley is home to several ancient temples and shrines, including the Martand Sun Temple, which dates back to the 8th century AD.
