Taking its name from the Sunny Deol-Amrita Singh hit debut film Betaab, the Betaab valley is situated at a distance of 15 kilometers from Pahalgam in Anantnag district in India’s northernmost state of Jammu and Kashmir. It falls between Pahalgam and Chandanwadi and is en route Amarnath Temple yatra. The valley surrounded by lush green meadows, snow clad mountains and covered with dense vegetation.
Betaab Valley is also a favourite campsite of travellers as it also serves as a base camp for trekking and further exploration of the mountains. The valley is a walk-able distance from Pahalgam. The crystal clear & chilly water of the stream bubbling down from the snowy hills is delightful; locals here drink this water too. Baisaran and Tulian Lake are few nearby attractions that can be visited.
