Doodhpathri Photos – The Valley of Milk

by Vargis.Khan

I just wanted to share a few Doodhpathri photos that I clicked on my recent trip to Kashmir. The camera I used for all these shots was a Nikon D7200. I had actually bought the camera just a few days before this trip. It was brand new and the trip was actually a test run for it as well.

There isn’t too heavy editing in the photographs but just small adjustments like increasing sharpness, contrast, etc which I did in Adobe Lightroom. These are not the best pictures of Doodhpathri out there but I think these turned out to be just about OK.

For a complete travel guide on Doodhpathri, please read How to Plan a Trip to Doodhpathri.

About Doodhpathri – The Valley of Milk

For a brief introduction, Doodhpathri is a tourist destination and hill station in Kashmir. It is situated at an elevation of 8,957 feet and is located about 45 – 50 kilometers from Srinagar.

The name Doodhpathri means Valley of Milk. It is said that the famous saint of Kashmir Sheikh ul Aalam Sheikh Noor din Noorani has prayed here.

As per the legend, once when he was in search of water in the meadows, to offer prayers. He pricked the ground with his stick to search for water and milk came out.

He said to the milk that it can only be used for drinking and not performing ablution. Hearing this, the milk at once changed its state to water and the meadow got its name Doodhpathri.

The water which is at present flowing through the meadows has a milky appearance from the distance and remains very cold throughout the year. The lush green grasses over the vast meadows and silver shining streams running over the large stones further increase its beauty.

Doodhpathri is a sloping grassy landscape with a diversity of multicolored flowers up to Chang. The famous Tosamaidan lies in the west of Doodhpathri.
