It is important as the gateway for Amarnath ji yatra.Though yatra was not on,there is a tourist rush to see the place.view of hills is good with Lidder flowing by the side.

I ve heard so much of Chandanwadi. We visited it in month of August end. It was looking great due to snow. When we visited it, there was no snow obviously, it was not the right season. Very disappointing. Only sheds of tin were there. We didn't get down from the car for that.

Total waste of time, since the road is closed by the army, due to stopplage of the Amarnath Yatra. Therfore one can only walk about 200 meters from parking lot to the fenced out area. The "guides" at the parking lot are a big NO NO. There is nothing to guide, and they will relieve you of your money in advance. Amongst all of Kashmir, the guides and horsemen at Zero Point and Chandanwari are the worst. Avoid them at all costs.

Considering there wont be any Amarnath Yatra this year too, the place has been neglected. No shops were opened, except a few small tea stalls. Way to the base of yatra was being constructed. Lot of noise, dust, and dirty segment of snow.

Betaab valley and Chandanwari fall on the same route.
Chandanwari has snow from the glacier but the colour isn't very pleasing to the eye during the summer. But the river provides some solace and is accessible enough to dip your feet. This place is one of the starting points of the famous Amarnath Yatra.

Had the wort experience with the local vendors and people who rent out gum boots. I dont want to hire their shoes coz i had my shoes to go on snow. They started threatening me saying they will kill me for not hiring shoes. Worst experience. None of them wearing mask and completely inhuman act. Be careful please

Chandanwari is the starting point of the Amarnath yatra for those on foot or horse-back. However, it is also a very famous tourist attraction for its snow meadows and mountainous views. Just 2 hours from Pahalgam, one can also visit Betaab valley on-route to Chandanwari.

Do not miss this ride, lots of scenic points on the way . You actually ride next to the snow capped mountains , glaciers , streams and pine trees .

However on reaching Chandanwari ( starting point for Amarnath ) , not much to do except doing some snow activities that you would also do at Gulmarg .

But i will strongly recommend the ride to Chandanwari .
