Lidder Valley, inarguably the best of the Kashmir valleys, forms the north-eastern corner of the Kashmir vale. The valley, for its mild looks, serene air and the lush meadows, glaciers and snow-covered peaks dotting its 40 mile stretch, has been often compared with Scotland in appeal. The Lidder starts at Kolahoi glacier and along its length, encompasses other tourist hot spots like Amarnath Cave, Pahalgam, Mattan and Aishmuqam. It is a trekker’s paradise as well.
The entire valley is astounding for its mesmerizing beauty and hence has a large tourist inflow in the seasons. Lidder Valley is situated on the way to Pahalgam from Khannabal. There are regular bus services from Srinagar and Anantnag to Pahalgam. Nearest rail head is Jammu (96 km). Closest airport is Srinagar Airport.
