Beautiful place ruined by neglect & local pony owners
Sep 2021 • Family
A beautiful place ruined by the sheer neglect & pony cronies. The pony owners will trail you till death & irritate the hell out of you. And their ponies poop is littered all around the place, there’s hardly any clean place to sit down.

A very few tourists visit this place compare ti Gulmarg and Sonamarg as it is situated at lesser height located in Budgam district but I can guarantee that you fall in love with this place as less crowd will make this place more adventurous.

Nice place to visit with family and friends. Excellent scenic road from Srinagar with lots of orchards and villages. You will be passing through Hazratbal mosque and can also spend time in the market. Yousmarg is nice place to walk upto river and you should wear comfortable shoes though the approach road is well and good. You can also take your car upto a picnic point or even hire horse. There may be rush during weekends so be careful while planing yours visit.

Good place to spend some time in the meadows - Only walk if day is sunny
May 2019 • Family
We visited Yusmarg in May'19 and had a good time roaming around the area. The drive from Srinagar is about 2.5 hours through bad roads in patches and you pass through Cherari-i-Sharif (the famous shrine) to reach your destination. You drive through tall pine trees. The place is located in Badgaum district and it is not possible to make a single day trip to Doodhpathri and Yusmarg though they are located in the same district and have similar meadows. The Government accommodation is also available at Yousmarg but I could make out the poor quality of maintenance as very few guests are turning up there. On your way, you pay various tolls (authorized or otherwise) / entry taxes and final one you may at the entry of Yusmarg. First you cross the big lake on your way (totally bounded by tall barbed fencing but local people were entering the place for fishing) and then reach the parking place. Once you reach the parking area, the horsemen will surround you and offer you services telling you that you can not walk to Doodh Ganga and Cherry garden as they are very far off places. Minimum 2 points cost you 770 per horse (as per the Government chart) and they will offer you for 600/- per horse. We bargained for 400 per horse (you can still go lower as hardy any tourists re there) and 200 for a helper as my son required one helper. You need not hire a horse and simply follow people / horsemen going to the points. It is a simple jungle walk if you can do it. We went to the points and spend sometime in taking snaps and then came back after about 1.5hours or so. Finally, we felt bad for the horsemen having little income and paid 2000 to 4 person (3 horsemen and one helper). Had kawha in the Government restaurant near the parking area and started for Srinagar. If you visit Doodhpathri, this place can be easily avoided as this place is nothing better than Doodhpathri. On our way, we gave lift to good number of people (ladies, young children, older people) and tad good talk with them. As public transport system does not work, people heavily depend on commercial number bearing Sumos and other taxis for moving from one place to another.

Snow covered meadow
Mar 2019 • Family
This is still one of the not so known destinations in Kashmir. Around 2 hour drive from Srinagar. Enroute we saw vast fields of almonds trees full with blooms, making it a beautiful scenery. The location itself was completely covered in snow. A tour guide did take us to different points around, but wasn't worth it. Visit here to just enjoy pristine pure white snow all for yourself since there are almost no visitors.

This is a must visit place in Kashmir. If someone loves nature, wants to identify themselves, this is a must visit place. Please spend one full day and stay at night in the nice guest house of J&K torrism. Night sky and the morning sunrise is awsome. The green valley will call you to walk along and feel blessed.
