Yusmarg (signifying ‘Meadow of Jesus’) is a hill station in the western Kashmir Valley in Indian Kashmir. It is situated 47 km south of Srinagar the capital. Yousmarg gives space to delightful scenes, pine nurseries, and green-pastured meadows. Nilnag, Doodhganga, and a nascent created artificial dam add more to the beauty of the meadows. Nature has offered Yousmarg lovely greenery.
Yousmarg is one of the Pir Panchal range’s amazing meadows. Believed to have been Roosmarg, a meadow of deer, the untamed life plentiful lavish green field is forever encircled by snow-clad mountain peaks. It is the main base camp for scaling 3 major Pir Panchal peaks – Tatakoti (4725 meters), Romesh Thong (4700m), and Sunset Peak (4746m). Tatakoti is a glacier that feeds Doodganga, the mountain stream that feeds part of Srinagar.
It additionally has incredibly harsh tracks interfacing the meadow with Gulmarg, Tosa Maidan, and Poonch. One of the tracks through Noorpur Pass interfaces Yousmarg (Kashmir) with Loran (Poonch) and has been a memorable trip. Loran was once Kashmir’s major outpost where a fort was located. It is presently being utilized by the Bakerwals for their movement from the Pir Panchal range to Kashmir with their herds during the summers.
