horse ride is a complete scam, charged us INR 11,000 for 3 for all made up points with nothing that can be described beautiful.
Only place worth visiting is Mini Switzerland, best way is to take a car upto a point which is away from Horse/Taxi stand scam site, and walk about 20 minutes to reach Mini Switzerland site.

In summary, i would say entire Pahalgam site is a scam, avoid going there unless travelling by own vehicle.

All taxi drivers will fool you while taking you to Betab valley ( only good place worth visiting) , chandanwari (which is nothing), Aru valley (very dirty), by saying that different taxi's go there due to union involvement which is absurd scam, there's nobody to check who is going where, private cars or cars of any sort can go there, they will then call there family/friend driver to charge you additional 2500 INR to take you to these three site.
I would recommend going to Betab valley only, and do a 3 hours walk or picnic, leave the rest.

One of the eight spots, will be taken for a full package horse ride in Phalgham. Nice scenic place. Here locals may come with rabbits and hand it over to you, pose for photos and will ask for money.
Most locals , by their look seems very poor, depends on only these sort of revenues.

Nothing much to boast about this valley. The local tour operators and pony wallas (horse folks) take you for a ride with the pricing for the sight seeing at this and multiple other points. Not worth it even If you bargain hard and negotiate well and get a great deal. Please avoid and save money.

Nothing special about this place, it looks just like the Kashmir valley with a slightly different view.

Good view, went on horseback and spent some time here. The road is a bit jerky and since there was snow horses were skidding a bit but worth the ride.

There is absolutely nothing at this point it is just created to exploit customers to charge more. One Can enjoy greenery around the hills, suitable for picnic with some games

The only plus point is you are charges heavily for a one hour horse ride

It is enroute to Baisaran and is not interesting at all. Just keep in mind that Baisaran or Mini Switzerland is main point to cover which is everthing. Pony will try to confuse you saying all these points which are nothing.
