Surankote is a small village located at a distance of about 27 km from Poonch. The place lies on the banks of Suran River and is known for Suran Valley. The valley, encircled by tall snow capped mountain ranges is popularly known as ‘Pahalgam of Poonch’. A fort known as Kote was constructed here probably in 1036 and the village got its name as Surankote by combining the name of the river and the fort.
