Unexplored Tour

When you think of Kashmir, your mind probably wanders to Gulmarg or Srinagar. Those are your typical tourist sites, and we’re not going to lie: they’re both pretty beautiful. However, there are some hidden gems in the state of Kashmir that will surely have your heart taken away by them, and they are in some ways better than what is most popular. These are the destinations where you can enjoy Kashmir’s real beauty while being away from the hordes of tourists. We just compiled a list of the best and our favorite offbeat destinations which we love to visit in Kashmir.

Lolab Valley

Lolab Valley is a unique, oval-shaped valley which is located between Kashmir and Neelum Valleys in the Kupwara District. This valley is remotely located and being cut off from the rest of the more famous tourist spots, it offers travelers a chance to relax and detox amidst beautiful surroundings.

There are dense forests here too where you can encounter varieties of flora and fauna. Satbaran is an ancient stone-carved architecture here, which many people believe is said to be made by the Pandavas of the Mahabharata, and according to some locals and legends, these caves have tunnels which lead to Russia and other Central Asian countries.

Many say that these caves were used when Kashmir Valley was completely covered in snow, to escape from harsh weather conditions.

Tulian Lake
