A Glimpse Of Heaven On Earth Doodhpathri or “Valley of Milk”, situated 42 Kms from Srinagar is definitely included in the list of unexplored places in Kashmir. If you plan to visit Kashmir sometimes, you should take a little time off to visit this beautiful and enchanting place. Doodhpathri is a beautiful meadow with emerald grass that looks like a green carpet. A beautiful river dancing and reverberating with the wind flows in the middle of the meadow, lending it a splendid charm and vibrancy. The place looks very beautiful and pleasant. The green grass under the feet is really wonderful.
Doodhpathri however is a recent inclusion in the Jammu Kashmir tourist map.
This is the reason that the place is not overcrowded and not many tourists visit
here. However, it has become a real hit among the local population, who find it
a welcome step. The road from Khansahib area in Badgam to the Doodhpathri
is not in a good condition. There is not a full-fledged market or any hotel in the
area, so the trip is always going to last for a day only and you need to pack
your lunch. Tea and snacks are available in the shops run by local people.
Travelling to the area can be hectic, but the place is worth the trouble. The
local government is taking steps on fast track basis to make the access easier
and comfortable. Work is going on to connect Doodhpathri with all the
concrete roads. Once completed, it is believed that the place will be at no. 3 of
the most preferred tourist destinations of the valley.
