Sightseeing in Pahalgam

There are varieties of sightseeing places in Pahalgam. Lidder River, Mamal Shiva Temple and Kolahoi Glacier are some of the prominent places that you can visit.

Lidder River, a snow fed river originating from glaciers in the mountains of Pahalgam, is one of the most beautiful picnic spot for tourists who want to just relax. If you are looking for some adventure then you can opt for white water rafting here.

An ancient temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, Mamal Shiva Temple is reckoned to be the oldest existing temple in Kashmir is the most visited one as well. Although the major part of the temple is in ruins, that does not deter devotees as they come in huge numbers to pay homage to a shivling installed inside the sanctum.

Situated just below Mount Kolahoi is the famous Kolahoi Glacier. Hollowed out because of global warming, Kolahoi Glacier is currently a hanging glacier and an interesting sight. You can trek up the Lidder Valley to enjoy the beauty of this glacier.
