Yusmarg

Meadows of Jesus, sometimes known as Yusmarg, is a popular area in the Bugdam district that is noted for its expansive meadows. Yusmarg is a proud member of the Valley of Kashmir and an ideal tourist destination that, in the most basic of ways, teaches reverence for nature. Explore paths that take you to far-off locations like Nilnag and Sang-e-Safed Valley. Stepping outside the ordinary, Yusmarg is a small piece of paradise all by itself. It contains some of the highest peaks in the PirPanjal range, such as Sunset Peak (4,746 m) and Tattakutti (4,725 m). This destination is even more thrilling and challenging because of the magnificent Doodh Ganga river. Adventure seekers can enjoy skiing on Yusmarg's formidable natural slopes. Conversely, the sacred site of Charar-e-Sharif bestows blessings upon all surrounding areas and is believed to shield the land from various misfortunes. However, Yusmarg is a haven for adventure seekers in addition to its historical significance and natural beauty. The meadows are a great place for outdoor activities because they provide lots of chances for hiking, horseback riding, and picnicking. According to legend, Yusmarg was named for Yousuf, a shepherd who grazed his flock in the meadows centuries ago. Regardless of the veracity of the legend, Yusmarg's enduring beauty never fails to enthrall tourists from all backgrounds.
