“Beautiful drive through enchanting pine forest”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

It was snowing when we got there! The drive up the mountains was amazing. The tall fir trees and running streams added to the overall effect.

“Switzerland in India”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

While in Gulmarg, we met a couple who introduced us to this location which is actually a mountain pass much like rohtang pass near Manali but much better only because it is a littleknown destination and devoid of multitudes flocking other hill stations. One of the most beautiful spots in all of Srinagar with a good road - single at times till the top with about 10-14 feet on either side of the road. Amazing views of snow covered slopes and peaks - one of the best and must visit places. It is about 110 Kms from Pahalgam and one can easily get a cab from the Taxi stand - costs about 4500 for a return trip for an Innova and the best part is that the rates are fixed by the government and displayed at the Taxi stand and so no haggling

“Heavenly Experience”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We were there in the last week of June 2014.... by the time snow had started melting. But still we were able to get to see a quite a lot of snow... Sinthan top is midway on the Anantnag-kokernag-Sinthan-Kishtwar road. The journey from Srinagar or Pahalgam is in itself a rich experience, and it's amazing to watch 10-15 feet snow-wall on the both the side of the road to Sinthan Top like a Ice Cave. Once you reach the top it is 360 degree view, and snow everywhere. We got down from the car and walk on snow. Sinthan Top is one of the best natural areas I have seen in Kashmir.

“Absolutely astonishing beauty ”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

This place is really wonderful, mountains covered with snow alongside green mountains. In 2014 as per local people it has snowed heavily in kashmir as a result the was huge pile of snow near sinthan top. I could see loads of people enjoying natural beauty by climbing snow capped mountains.

There was atleast 15 feet snow on the road side, pristine patterns crafted by nature were treat for eyes and fresh air for rest of the body. This could only be captured by one device I.e. Human eyes - no man made camera could capture and preserve.

“beauty”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

this is a beauty in the center of kashmir..absolute beauty,ush green meadows, high snow peak mountains and above all taking full advantage of connectivity with district Anantnag of Kashmir valley through Synthen top/valley which can develop into a viable tourist circuit resulting boost of economic activity under Public Private Partnership mode in this far-flung and hilly area.
