About The Doodhpathri

Doodhpathri is a tourist destination and hill station in the Indian State of Kashmir. It is located in Budgam district of Jammu & Kashmir. Situated at an altitude of 8,957 ft. from sea level, and located at a distance of 42 km from state summer capital Srinagar and 22 km from district headquarter Budgam.
The name "doodpathri" means Valley of Milk. It is said that the famous saint of Kashmir Sheikh ul Aalam Sheikh Noor din Noorani has prayed here and 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 asked the milk that you can only be used for drinking and not performing ablution. Hearing this milk at once changed its state to water and the meadow got its name Doodpathri. 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 sloping grassy landscapes with a diversity of multicolored flowers up to change. The famous Tosamaidan lies in the west of Doodpathri.
