:- The valley of milk
The valley of Kashmir is famous for the natural scenic views all over the world. There is no place like this on the whole planet. In the valley of saints, there is one place named
Doodh Pathri, the valley of milk.
Behind the name of Doodh Pathri
is a saint named Sheikh Noor-ud-Din Noorani (r.a), who was searching for water in this valley to make ablution and pricked one place with his stick, from where the milk came out. He asked milk to become water as it can only be used for drinking and not for ablution. Since then the valley is known as the valley of milk.
At an altitude of 2730 m, lying in the Pir Panjal Range of the Himalayas, this beautiful and alpine valley is covered by the snow-clad mountains. The whole valley is covered by the tall Pines, Fir, and the Deodar. The meadows that are far away from the main valley are covered with snow. The landscapes got fully covered with wildflowers and little daisies.
The weather remains moderate throughout the summer and is the perfect time to visit here. In winters, this place receives a huge snowfall that makes the whole place look white and silvery, but is inaccessible during this time due to snow.
The water gushing over the big stones adds more beauty to the place. The water remains cool as ice throughout the year. The locals from the adjacent areas bring the cattle here in summer for grazing and live here for the 6-month duration.
