“Good location and still not so crowded”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We visited Yousmarg while on a short trip to Kashmir. Initially we had planned to do Sonmarg but eventually decided to go to Yousmarg. This place is around 2 hours drive from Srinagar. You can also visit the Charar-e-Sharif shrine on the way.

The place is as said in the earlier reviews a mix of Gulmarg and Pahalgam. The drive is very scenic and we had 5 to 6 photo stops on the way. When we visited the weather was very cold with harsh winds. There are ponies available to visit various points and there is a bit hassle. But one thing I liked over here is they go by the rates on the board. You don't have to bargain here like at other places in Kashmir. Our ponies were very good and we eventually tipped the people.

We visited the Doodhsagar fall, it was ice eveywhere and the entire journey was good. The points can very well be visited on foot. One important thing is there were not many tourists around here which made it very pleasant to enjoy the nature.

Overall a good place to visit during your Kashmir trip

“Great Place”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

its indeed a great place. It has a very good looking landscape. You can get the beauty of both Gulmarg & Pahelgam. I should recommend all to have a visit here. We visited during April'14 and there is a mixture of green and white.

“Better Avoid”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

This place is still under development. Other than constructional activities there is wet mud due to rain. So diffcult to move around. The "Pony wall" hassle is there as with othere sites gulmarg, sonmarg. This place is combination of pehalgam and gulmarg. will definatly awsome after development (2-3 years).

“Great for a walk in the woods”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

A little remote from the main tourist areas but very much worth a visit for the beauty of the forest and stream. Take your strolling shoes.

“Great place , Must visit, winter in amezing”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

We have visited Yousmarg on first week of March, milk white every where, the adjacent Irrigation reservoir was frozen, heavenly view. En-rout one can view the glimpses of the snow peaks.Less visitor is the blessing. An amazing place. You should include it in your trip or will miss a real beauty of Kashmir.
