“AGAR FIRDAUS BAR ROO-E ZAMEEN AST, HAMEEN AST-O HAMEEN AST-O HAMEEN AST”.
It means “If there is a paradise on earth, It is this, it is this, it is this”
Due to the tiring journey from Jammu to Srinagar, we got up a little late in the morning. After having our breakfast we were ready to explore Srinagar. But the question was where should we start from.
“We will start with Doodhpathri” our Kashmiri friend said.
We all were puzzled. None of us knew that there was a place called Doodhpathri in Kashmir.
Finally we started our ride towards Dodhpathri.
Watch the full video of Doodhpathri here:
“Doodpathri” which means Valley of Milk is situated 42 kms from Srinagar. It took us around an hour to reach this heavenly place and trust me reaching there we were enchanted by its pristine beauty. It truly was a Heaven as said by our Kashmiri friend.
Parking our motorcycles we went towards the river which is only a 5 minutes walk from the parking spot.
Doodhpathri is a charming meadow having lush green grass spread all over with a milky river flowing in between.The wooden bridge on the river adds to the overall appeal of the place.
Doodhpathri is less popular among tourists as compared to Gulmarg, Sonmarg etc, but in terms of beauty it is no less. It definitely is an unexplored gem of Kashmir. We all were mesmerised by that place. The atmosphere of Doodhpathri was so tranquil that you could sit near the melodic river for hours. Doodhpathri is quite popular among shepherds who visit this beautiful place from different areas with their cattle’s and stay here together for days. It is a must visit place if you are in Srinagar.
