About Kishtwar:

Kishtwar is a little-known jewel in Kashmir known for its saffron cultivation. Because of this, the destination is also known as the Land of Sapphire and Saffron. The region is around 235 kilometres from Jammu and has some beautiful beauty, including towering snow-clad mountains, verdant valleys, and attractive rivers. The beautiful floral meadows, fruit orchards, and verdant woodlands here will astound you.

Given its geography, the area is also suitable for adventure. The Paddar and Wadhwan Valleys are especially well-known for paragliding and rock climbing. Trekking is also popular in the area, with one of the most popular routes taking you through Paddar Valley to Zanskar Valley.

Furthermore, the region is renowned for its magnificent saffron fields, which are scattered across the district’s various attractive hamlets, including Berwar, Hatta, and Pochhal, to mention a few. These blossoms are best seen between October and November.
Qilla Kishtwar, Katarsamna, and Bharnoin are some of the most popular sites to visit in Kishtwar.
