Dodhpather Srinagar

Dodh pathar
Dodhpather is a bow- shaped valley about 42 kms form Srinagar. It is a recent discovery in the valley covered with green carpeted meadows. An adjoining river resounds the soft wind passing through pine trees of the surrounding forests. It is said that the cattle grazing in the meadows of Dodhpather, produces rich milk in large quantity, and for this reason it is also called the "valley of milk".Shepherds from different areas travel to this place along with their cattle's and stay there for days together. This area also connected to Gurez valley on its north.

A cup of tea with snack at tea stalls run by local people during the season at the main meadows could become your most pleasurable drink. A full day tour to Dodhpather with some packed lunch will definitely be a bonus to your visit to Kashmir.

Dodh Pather, as the name suggests (valley of milk), has very little population and the villages around are mostly occupied by shepherds. The meadows offer the best pastures for the cattle, which in turn keep the turf regular and smooth.Besides the beautiful gardens of Dodh Pather, there are few other tourist attractions in the same district. There are two shrines, Khan Saheb and Shams-al-Faqir that are visited by a good number of locals.
