There is a dense vegetation of conifers and lush green shrubs that captivate the true essence of Kashmir. Dotted with color huts, shelters and many different species of birds, this valley has a specialty in itself. In the Betab Valley, you can go horseback riding or even have a picnic on the banks of snow-fed, Jade River that bubbles down south from the snowy hills. The water of Jade is so pure that the locals here use it for drinking!
