    Slightly offbeat, great views!
    Cars aren't allowed beyond the main gate which leads to the meadow. Beyond this you can walk/ take a pony ride/ ride an ATV. We chose to walk and that was the best decision we took. It only takes 29 mins, and the views from the meadow to the river are mesmerizing. The weather was pleasant with a slight chill and the river was also a sight to behold, with some hot kahva from a stall along the banks being the cherry on top. Make sure you wear comfortable footwear though.

    Beautiful and serene.
    Doodhpathri is an amazingly beautiful place. It is miles of verdant meadows and the Shaliganga river on one side flanked by mountains. The Rocky river turns the flowing water white white as milk, hence the name. It is a place to walk and wander and absorb the splendour of nature. But of course, it is full of ponies and ATVs. If you choose one of these, then they take you on a fixed path down to the river. There are also cabs that take you to the river and back. It is a good option is walking is not for you. But if you are luckily enough to be there when the crowds are away, then just wander in the meadow s and by the river, drink in the beauty and marvel at the wonder that is our earth.

    Wow place.
    One of the Most scenic place near Srinagar. It takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to reach from srinagar but it's worth it. If you want to do the horse back rode plz take care n bargain well. There is some extra 150 rs toll which allows the car to go further on, advisable to pay that .

    Awesome
    Picturesque valleys, green meadows, sheeps n shephards, cool breeze, tall tree forests- just like out of a movie scene. However, once u reach pony point, from where u pick horse for further venture n ur vehichle stops, we didnt go further. Instead chose to stop in the green meadows on the way. That was way more relaxing experience (mainly bcz we have seen snow lot of times before, so green meadows were our eye candy) Beware of the rates befor consuming- be it pony or the umpteen kiosks of makai roti n saag on the way!

Doodhpattri is a beautiful meadow,clean and peaceful but before entering the mai entrance of doodhpattri,i like the two meadow before it because it is more beautiful, clean and less crowded where you can sit peacefully on the bench and enjoy the nature.

Honestly, this place did not live up to our expectations. No doubt it has picturesque meadows and lush greenery, but it's not spectacular.

One big reason that has tarnished the once untouched beauty of Doodhpathri has to be the excessive commercialization of this place.

Visited on a Friday afternoon, the place was crammed with all sorts of cars, drivers who kept honking incessantly, the touts who kept insisting for pony or ATV rides and the general sight of litter.

Such was the dust floated by the cars and ATV's and some construction work, that a more apt name to this place would be "Dhoolpathri".

I would suggest one spends more time at the Parihas Meadow (upon entering Doodhpathri) than at the Shaliganga River point which i feel is overrated.

Also, the thing that added to our misery was our guide who tried to scam us. We did not want one in the first place,but our driver got him onboard.
We refused the pony and ATV rides (which gets them commissions),so he made up a story that the local union of Gujar folks do not allow cars to go the last point and that a fee (without receipt) has to be paid for cars to be allowed to pass.
Of course, I asked around only to find out that there is no such thing. A nominal poll tax of Rs. 150 has to be paid for cars to go to the Shaliganga point.
Needless to say, I got my money back after a stern confrontation with the guide and our driver but my mood was spoiled.

This is very good choice for a day trip from Srinagar. Roads offer breathtaking views of Apple orchards and snow covered mountains. Hiring a pony ( of course with negotiation) a a fair deal here as the way pony takes is pretty decent and safer unlike Baisaran one. This place is relatively less crowded and one can thoroughly enjoy clean waters of Shaliganga river. Few tips:
- If you are hiring for pony please make sure you will be taken to a point called "Mini Switzerland of Doodhpatri" ..This comes towards the end of the pony ride, i.e. After Shaliganga river point. This is simply beautiful with lush green space. Very less people come here, so note this point while negotiating with the ponywala
- There are many local shops selling Makki ki roti with local saag which tastes yum. Don't miss this if you're visiting Doodhpatri as its available only here
- Pack food or plan the trip such that you will be back to Srinagar by 2-3PM as there are no good lunch options nearby

Nice alpine meadow and a waterfall. See it if you have an extra day or a half day. Day trip cab will charge about Rs 2500 for this trip.

The overall experience was mesmerising, the photos are truly natural, the Shalimar Ganga view attracts the eyes, the pony service was too homelike, the ganga is around 5-6 km from parking spot, 3 modes are available- Pony Service, ATV rides and Walking though there are several reviews although the major spot is Ganga and its MUST VISIT PLACE, less crowded and full of nature, Plan your day here instead of Sonmarg.
