Away from the trammels of mundane, Doodhpathri is abode to crystal-clear flowing water, sky-kissing pine trees and fresh air. This bowl-shaped valley is located at 8957 ft altitude from the sea level. The place gets its name on the grounds of its cold milky water. It is also believed to be linked to a folk tale of a famous Kashmiri saint,  Sheikh Noor din Noorani who is said to have cast about the place for water in order to ablute himself for praying.  However, when he started to prick the ground, it gushed forth milk instead of water. But  the milk upon hearing his words that it can only be used for drinking and not cleansing, changed into water. So, this is how the place was named. Some also say that Doodhpathri  gets its name from the rich cattle milk production in the area, it is named so. From the velvety emerald meadows and the snow capped summits which loom as the backdrop; every aspect and topographical feature of this spot is jaw-dropping.


The towering conifers, pearly milky water, fresh and crisp air, smooth scattered pebbles, sloping jagged and lush landscapes; all delight you and compel you to plumb in the depths of such charismatic views. The valley abounds in multi-colored flowers including forget-me-nots, daisies and buttercups.  Doodhpathri has been used by nomads for ages. We can still witness the mud houses of the inhabitants known as "Kotha". It is a great place for Instagram enthusiasts and those who love photography. The place can also be visited for camping and trekking. The roads which pass through the forest have been macadamized now and more hotels are being constructed. You will witness a lot of ponies around in Doodhpathri and can even take a pony ride too. There are also some beautiful places in the vicinity which you can visit:
