Major Tourist Attractions in Yousmarg
Doodh Ganga is one of the tourist attractions of Yusmarg that lies in its
close vicinity. The water of the river makes a little white foam while
crashing on its way over the rocks and thus, it got its name 'Doodh' means
milk. On the bank of the river, tourists either love to undertake a
natural walk or enjoy picnic. The river is also known as the ideal spot
for angling activities.
Tosa Maidan is not only famous as a pasture but also for its historical
background. Bounded by dense forests, it is situated about 10 kms from
Khag in the mountains of the Himalayan range.
After crossing the upper mountain reaches of Drang, Zakhora and other
small villages, one reaches the pasture of Tosa Maidan
Sang-e-Safed or 'White Rocks' is located at a distance of 10 km from the
Yusmarg Valley in Budgam District of Jammu and Kashmir. Sang-e-Safed is an
oval-shaped meadow bisected by a Doodh Ganga stream. The site is visited
for its various meadows which are also beautiful picnic spots.
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. This is Yusmarg- close enough to
Srinagar for a picnic, idyllic enough to make you want to stay for a few

which engulfed the entire building.
