Aharbal Waterfall

Snuggled in the heart of Shopian district, Aharbal Waterfall is one of the hidden gems of Kashmir. This enchanting cascade is not just a sight to behold but a testament to nature's raw beauty. Also referred to as "Niagara Falls of Kashmir," this hill station is located south of Srinagar, the summer capital of India, in the southwest portion of Kashmir Valley in the Jammu and Kashmir union territory. The area is serene and great for trekking, fishing, photography, and expeditions. The waterfall draws a lot of tourists from India and other countries because of its captivating views of meadows, forests with pine and fir trees, and neighboring mountains covered in snow. Aharbal provides exhilarating trekking and hiking opportunities for adventure seekers, with scenic trails leading to neighboring meadows and viewpoints. Along the route, if you're lucky, you might see some unusual wildlife, such as the elusive Kashmir stag, also known as Hangul. One of the interesting things to know about Aharbal is that in the winter the waterfall becomes a frozen wonderland, drawing visitors from all over the world to see its icy beauty.
