1. Srinagar Airport to Pahalgam will take 2.5 hrs, taxi will charge Rs.1600. You will reach Pahalgam around 4 p.m. if the flight is on schedule. After check-in you may roam on the bank of River Lidder.

2. Pahalgam - After breakfast Aru Valley. After lunch pony ride to Betaab Valley.

3. You should start for Srinagar latest by 4 p.m. from Pahalgam.

4. Pine Cliff Resort, Pine-n-Peak are good option within the budget.

No need of guide in Pahalgam. Betaab Valley, Aru & Chandanwadi can be done together by suv. They charge Rs.1400 for that. Since you are going in off-season the vehicle will charge Rs.1000 for 3 places. There is a very good coffee shop adjecent to Pahalgam Hotel, DanaPani is a good veg Restaurant. Pahalgam Hotel and Pine-n-Peak also have good restaurants. Those will be open till 8 p.m.

zatul,

Pahalgam is not a big town, the hotel is about 10 min from the market area. For sight seeing around Pahalgam, you need to hire local transport from the motor/bus stand. The vehicle will charge Rs.1000 for Aru, Chandanwari and Betaab Valley in off-season (January).
