PIR KI GALI
The ancient Mughal road’s revival in J&K has turned out to be a treat for visitors, making a unique region covering pristine scenic locations besides places with immense heritage, eco, and adventure tourism value accessible for them.

The region in the Himalayan Pir Panjal range is being promoted as a tourist circuit with diverse places of attraction including Mughal-era monuments, untouched forests, rolling meadows, springs, lakes, waterfalls and shrines.

It is expected to emerge as the next big thing among the state’s tourist sites and further boost its tourism industry that has begun to look up after years of conflict.

Mughals built several monuments along the route after Emperor Akbar used it to conquer Kashmir in 1588. The road, with elevations of up to 13,000 feet, is currently motorable till Baflaiz in Poonch and connected Kashmir with Lahore. It promises to be its alternate, all-weather route to the outside world.
