Fringed by a densely forested gorge and snow-capped mountains, Daksum boasts a stunning landscape that ranges from tree-covered hills to grassy meadows. Standing at a height of about 2,438 m, Daksum is nestled amidst the gorgeous Kokernag Springs and gives one a feeling of tranquil isolation. The melodious gushing of the Brengi river merges seamlessly with the peaceful surroundings and the best way to explore the area is through nature-walks. Daksum is a retreat for trekkers as well, with several trails starting from here. The trail that leads to Sinthan Top and Sinthan Pass is particularly beautiful. Travellers can also set up camps in the lush and scenic landscape and spend blissful hours underneath a blanket of stars. Another attraction of Daksum is angling in the Brengi river, which is teeming with trout. However, angling is allowed only after availing permissions from the Forest Department. Daksum is situated about 40 km from Anantnag and 85 km from Srinagar.
