Yusmarg is a small meadow set in the heart of mountains
to the south-west of Srinagar. It is an ideal picnic spot
and the Nilnag Lake can be visited from here. A two hour drive
from Srinagar ( 47 kms ) will take you to acres upon acres
of grassy meadow ringed by forests of pine, and towering beyond
them, awesome and majestic snow clad mountains.
Nearby are several peaks-Tatta Kutti and Sang
Safed to name a couple of them. About 13 kms from Yusmarg,
a short detour away from the Srinagar road, is Charari- Sharief,
the Shrine of Kashmir’s patron saint Sheikh Noor-ud-din
or Nund Reshi, now rebuilt after the devastating fire of 1994
which engulfed the entire building.
Yusmarg is an ideal day-picnic resort.
