Nestled just about 2.5 km away from the famous city of Srinagar, this hidden hill station is an offbeat place located right on nature’s lap.

Head to the Khag tehsil in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam district to explore the untouched fairyland-like serene hill station. Reaching the meadow is a scenic journey in itself. Overlooking alluring views of lush greenery, visitors travel passing picturesque views of mountain peaks and heavenly surroundings of enchanting places. Once you reach your destination, you will be welcomed by green dense pastures and pleasing views and ambience. With very few people in the hill station, it becomes the perfect opportunity to sit, back, relax, and rejuvenate.

Some of the many reasons that attract travel enthusiasts from all around are the famous green pastures, pretty flower beds, the huge beautiful meadow measuring about 3 miles in length and 1.5 miles in breadth, not-much-explored greenery, glacial lakes, and historical background. People believe that shepherds from some neighbouring countries used to come to this destination long ago. Interestingly, Tosa Maidan was a location for the Indian Army’s firing range previously.
