Description

This is a very beautiful trail nearby Dal Lake that takes one deeper into the mountains.

Spectacular views of the Pir Panjal, Himadri, and the Greater Himalayan Ranges.

Green areas can be seen all around but with fewer tree lines, the terrain is more of rocky with hints of snow here and there but the views are pretty amazing, specifically the change in terrain.

Other than the terrain it is pretty diverse as well with many different species of animals, birds, and plants.
