Yusmarg is famous for its grassy pastures, dense forest with a backdrop of snow peaked mountains and is a perfect place for picnic. It is known for the river Dudh Ganga so named due to its milk white foam formed as it treks down the mountain slopes. A little further away is a captivating lake, Nilnag, cradled amongst the hills. For serious trekkers, Tata Kuti and Sang Safed are two of the several peaks standing, a day away from Yusmarg. Ponies can be hired from the local tourist office.
