Lidder river which cascades across the valley makes it even more scenic. Tourists will be welcomed to vast green landcapes and blue water slithering in the heart of this place. The post card beauty of this region is undescribable.

Lidder Valley with a backdrop of Himalayan peaks is alluring and also perfect for a photography tour.
