The Betaab Valley is a renowned and one of the favorite tourist destinations located at a walkable distance of 15 kms from Pahalgam in Anantnag district in the State of Jammu and Kashmir. The valley got its name from the famous Bollywood movie ‘Betaab.’ Betaab valley lies between Pahalgam and Chandanwadi in the lap of snow covered mighty Himalayas. The surrounding thick vegetation and lush green meadows adds to scenic beauty of the valley.
It is also a preferred camping site among travelers who wish to go for mountain trekking, as it provides a perfect base camp site to explore and engulf the majestic Himalayan Mountains. Even a simple walk through the valley seems an invitation from nature to savor its beauty at best. The sound of crystal clear and chilled water streaming from the higher mountains appears in complete harmony to this naturally blessed valley.
The Baisaran and Tulian Lake are nearby must see tourist sites. March to November is considered as the best time to visit here as the weather during these months is pleasant and soothing. The nearest airport is Srinagar which is 95 km from Pahalgam. Jammu is the nearest Railway station from Pahalgam. Once you reach Srinagar or Jammu, you can hire a pre-paid taxi or car or take a bus to reach Pahalgam which is well connected to both the cities by road.
