Day 2 - A Captivating Drive from Srinagar to Dawar

As we journey 125 km, the road unveils breathtaking views of Razdan Pass. Standing at an impressive 11672 ft, Razdan Pass offers a panoramic vista that will leave you spellbound. Capture these moments, and with a bit of luck, you might even get a clear view of the towering Harmukh Peak. Ask Army Personnel at Razdan Pass and they would help you to locate Harmukh Peak far behind floating clouds.

Our evening in Dawar is complemented by a delightful dinner and a peaceful overnight stay at a hotel.

Day 3 - Journey to Tulail

As we proceed further towards Dawar, we will enter the Tulail region. Along the Kishanganga River, we will encounter several quaint villages, each boasting of mesmerizing beauty and captivating your senses. Typically, these villages consist of 25-30 households and are spread out over a distance of approximately 60 kilometers. On this route, Chakwali is the last village before reaching the adjoining Pakistan border. Other villages between Dawar and Chakwali include Barnoi, Shaikhpora, Puarana Tilail, Badugam, Hasangam, Baduab, Miru, Angaikot, and Gujran. Later in the evening, we will drive back to Dawar and spend the night there.

Awake to another day in paradise and delve into the local charms of Dawar. Today's highlights include the pyramid-shaped Habba Khatoon peak and its enchanting spring. In the afternoon, journey back to Bandipora, where the magnificent Wular Lake awaits. Perched on the lake's up-hills, the Wular View resort offers stunning vistas and unmatched tranquility. Relish the evening views and stay overnight at this picturesque locale.

Day 5 - Venture into the Keran Valley

After breakfast, set off for the captivating Keran Valley, a land steeped in legend and natural beauty. The Village of Keran is said to have been established by Raja Bahadur Khan in the 10th Century. Alongside the Kishanganga River, the valley unfolds like a canvas painted with nature's best hues.

Keran Valley, a sanctuary near the LOC border that offers lush greenery and a backdrop of imposing mountains. Wander through verdant landscapes, interact with friendly locals, and uncover the valley's hidden cultural treasures. As long as we walk we can explore something new. As we go deeper into the villages, we will witness the wooden architecture and bygone structures of the region. As evening approaches, retreat to our cozy accommodation for dinner and rest.

Our day ends on a peaceful note with dinner and an overnight stay at a Hotel.

Day 6 - Journey to the Magical Bangus Valley

Prepare for an awe-inspiring journey to Bangus Valley, a pristine natural wonder nestled in the Himalayas. Here, vast meadows and dense forests create a haven for nature enthusiasts and adventurers alike. Witness the simple beauty of pastoral life and the unspoiled splendor of this secluded paradise. After a day of exploration, unwind with dinner and an overnight stay, enveloped by the valley's serene energy.
