Sadhna Pass Viewpoint

Sadhna Pass Viewpoint, perched high in Kupwara's untamed terrain, provides an amazing view of the unadulterated beauty of nature. This location is the starting point for a trip through geography and history, not just a picturesque rest stop. It links Kupwara district's Karnah tehsil to the remainder of the Kashmir valley, which is administered by India. It is situated in the expansive mountain range of Shams Bri. Roughly 3000 meters above sea level. A breathtaking panorama of snow-capped peaks, verdant valleys, and meandering roads slicing through the mountains like ribbons greets you as you look out from Sadhna Pass. The crisp air holds hints of stories from bygone eras. This pass was historically important as a trade route that connected Kashmir with Gilgit and Baltistan. Its perilous pathways were once traversed by traders and travelers who shared goods and tales with one another. It remains a silent reminder of human endeavor and the passage of time. Sadhna Pass offers stunning scenery, hiking trails, alpine meadows, hidden waterfalls, and potential glimpses of endangered species like snow leopards and Himalayan ibex. Its unique charm is its ability to captivate visitors through space and time.
